18 AWG Bright Aluminum Jump Rings with Imperial ID

Free economy shipping on retail orders over $99 (US only)

Sku: IBA18


Our Bright Aluminum jump rings are alloy 5356. (18 gauge AWG = 1.023 mm)

Our jumprings 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.

All rings are tumble polished for a bright shiny beautiful jumpring. Occasionally you might get a misshapen ring or an end cut half ring. To account for this, we put extra rings in every bag.

    I was so disappointed in these rings. For some odd reason they wpuld not fully close. I am not a rookie working with jumprings and chainmaille but I could not get smooth closures. Also, I have never worked with rings that made my fingers black. I had to stop and wash my hands several times. based on that, I don't feel comfortable making a piece for someone to wear that can damage clothes or make black smudges on their skin.
    The enameled copper, on the other hand were perfect.
