Enameled copper provides some of the brightest and most colorful jump rings you will find. They are made by coating the wire with an enamel that makes for shiny rings that are a pleasure to work with and wear.

Silvered enameled copper is made by plating the copper wire with a layer of pure silver before enameling, which creates a brilliant shine. Unlike niobium and titanium, copper rings must be colored before they are cut. This leaves the original copper wire visible at the cut. However, these are saw-cut rings, so if you close them well, no copper should be visible.

As with all colored rings, some fading will occur over time, but we find that can add a nice dimension to your work. The actual colors may differ slightly from batch to batch, as each spool of wire can be slightly different. Generally speaking, the color in enameled copper is much more reliable than any of the anodized metals.

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.), measured in millimeters 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.


Over the last few months you may have noticed that some of our enameled copper rings have been out of stock (flag blue!). Since we have been supplying enameled copper we have always looked to provide our customers with top quality rings. Unfortunately within the last few years our supplier has made changes to the way that they manufacture the wire. We have been unable to get the same quality we once did and regret to inform that some rings will come with slight variances depending on the batch.

We suggest to always purchase as much of a color as you need for a complete project. From time to time we have received wire that tends to "peel". If one in 20 rings seems like it might peel, we will manufacture the rings, and this will be considered a normal occurrence with our enameled copper rings. Anything more than that, and we will not offer it to the public.

We must inform you that we can't accept returns based on rings that peel, or off color enameled copper rings. These slight defects are not ideal, but they are becoming a regular occurrence in order to still provide our customers with the enameled copper options. Quality is always our first concern and if we feel that there is a color that is not performing to our standards we may have to discontinue it. We apologize and regret that this is the case. Please contact us if you have questions about a specific color or size.

    I was very pleased with these rings. They were exactly what I was looking for. The colors were perfect for the dog collar I was making.

    Absolutely great...everything I expected and more. I've already used them in two bracelets and gotten compliments on both bracelets. I'll order them again and again.
