Our Anodized Aluminum mixes are sold in 1 ounce packages.  To see approximate number of rings per ounce, visit our Aluminum Jump Ring Chart

These mixes are designed to be a mix and to give you a variety of color to work with or to create a unique piece of "jump ring stew”. Occasionally we will throw a few limited quantity colors into a mix to enhance the mix. They are a surprise treat and not to be expected every time or to be found with our regular rings. If you need a set amount of each color we suggest you purchase the individual colors instead of a mix.

Anodized Aluminum Jump Rings - Product Description

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.

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.

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.

FDA Approved - The anodizing process we use is FDA approved for cookware. Premier Anodizing uses only organic dyes and is rated non-hazardous.

    I have purchased a few different mixes, and never had issues. My favorite so far is the "Guns and Roses" mix. I'm from Ohio, and these are perfect for Buckeye-themed bracelets and earrings.
