This listing contains rings that are especially useful for attaching medium sized charms to bracelets and necklaces. You will receive 50 Jump Rings, 18 gauge 6mm ID (inside diameter). Non-Tarnishing Silver Plated Jump Rings are perfect for chainmaille artisans and all jewelry artisans who are looking for something better than what is available commercially!
18 gauge AWG = 1mm thick
These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper. First they are silver plated. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use and for YOU!
They are made from Non-tarnishing Silver Plated Parawire Wire. They are wound on a mandrel and SAW CUT with 0.008" rotary slitting saw blade-this means that only a very small amount of the ring is removed which gives you a nice round ring with a very SMOOTH parallel cut.
Next they are tumble washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected. Special tools are not required to work with these! I damage 1% on average.
I love making chainmaile, but was unable to purchase jump rings that met my standards, so I invested in the equipment and started making them myself. Over 40 years engineering experience paid off! I love them! The weight is substantial and my customers love the feel when they pick up my products.
