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. Alloy 304. Stainless steel jump rings are our strongest rings to work with.

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.

Occasionally you might get a misshapen ring or an end cut half ring. To account for this, we put extra rings in every bag. If you need help figuring the Aspect Ratio, please contact us.

    This is my first time using jump rings for making jewelry, but these are fantastic. I have not found any faulty rings, and they came exactly as I was expecting.

    I emailed to find out about stainless steel jumprings.. Immediate response to my questions. I ordered them and they came VERY fast! They worked out beautifully and they were easy to work with. I heard about Stainless being hard to bend, but they were not. I have half of a Persian bracelet almost finished. It is spectacular. Wish I had more time to work on it. Love this company.
