Our Jump rings are anodized before they are cut so the ends are raw aluminum however with the coating thickness we use and with the thin blades we cut our Jump rings with, if you close the rings properly the seam can not be seen.

 Our Anodized Aluminum Jump rings are anodized in house at our sister company, Premier Anodizing & Metal Finishing. This assures that we will never be out of stock of a color and that we have control over our quality.  However, the colors can change slightly from batch to batch. We use a spectrometer to get the closest color matches possible but there still can be some differences, this is normal in the anodizing process. Therefore, you should order enough jump rings to finish your project all at the same time. FDA Approved - The anodizing process we use is FDA approved for cookware. Premier Anodizing uses only organic dyes and is rated non-hazardous.

 Jump Ring Weight - Anodized Aluminum Jump rings are lighter weight than Enameled Copper Jump rings. The coating is fairly hard but it can be scratched with steel.

    anodized aluminum jump rings

    Oct 1st 2017

    I ordered these in several colors for specific bracelets that I plan to weave. The colors are very vivid for all I ordered. Some show a little silver at the closure, but not a significant amount. I haven't had any problem with chipping. Will definitely order more.

    The colors are absolutely beautiful and they work so well. Easy to open with pliers, but not so weak that you can open them with your fingers. Metal is strong and does not warp or distort when used in jewelry. And did I mention how light they are? Strength, lightweight, and gorgeous. The triple threat!

    Love these rings

    I love these rings, they're easy to work with and lightweight. I've tried many of the different colors for these rings and love them all. The only issue I had was the tiffany blue rings scratching easily so the end product ends up looking a little sloppy.

    holy cobalt!

    Jun 3rd 2016

    I ordered the cobalt anodized aluminum rings to make a byzantine weave bracelet for a friend who's favorite color is blue. I opened the box and immediately decided cobalt blue is my favorite color now, too! The color is so vibrant and beautiful!! I ended up doing a couple of inches of the weave in just the cobalt to show it off in her bracelet (she wanted silver and blue). And, the rings are quite a bit stronger than the copper, which tends to be my preference to work with. I understand why there's such a high demand for these, now! They're just wonderful.
