Stainless Steel Jump Rings - Product Description
Our Stainless Steel jump rings are ANNEALED alloy 304. Stainless steel rings are very strong and can give a piece some nice weight, shine and durability. Stainless steel is a very versatile high quality metal. It does not rust and outperforms gold and silver. Our rings are tumbled to a beautiful shiny finish. Stainless steel jump rings are our strongest rings to work with.

Stainless Steel Jump Rings - Specifications
Our jump rings follow the American Wire Gauge (AWG), also known as Brown and Sharpe (B&S). All sizes listed are inside diameter (I.D.) which corresponds to the size of the mandrel onto which the wire is wound. Use these I.D.'s as a guide not an absolute, as springback can occur.

The wire used to make our jump rings is of extremely high quality and made using an IOS-Certified production process. However, like all wire, there may be slight tolerances in size. Wire diameter may vary up to 0.03mm (0.0012”) larger or smaller than the listed size. 

Occasionally you might get a misshapen ring or an end cut half ring. To account for this, we put extra rings in every bag.

 **Important Notice: Orders with more than 2 packs of an item may be bulk packaged at WGM's discretion. However, sizes will not be mixed in a bag.

    They are holding well had to change out the 18-gauge rings to the 16-gauge rings. They were part of a bracelet. The 16 gauge works better . Chester

    These are the most hardest to bend that being said they rejoin the best of all the others. I like the look and the price is affordable.

    Was not sure what to expect with these, but I could not be more happy with the purchase. I do not know if I would even bother with another distributor, the mismatches I did not see, cuts were very even, and quality great for my job. First Jewelry project, the gaps were a tad bit too big for my liking, but do not let that stop you from buying. I do not feel the need to look for another place to buy any base materials after the quality of these.
