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.

    I just completed a jpl necklace for a young teen. It turned out beautiful. I will try other chain maille weaves using stainless steel rings again. Thank you!

    Beefy, beautiful. Been working with the smaller wire sizes for so long that these were a bit of a surprise. They were all uniform in wire size and ID. The hard tensile strength was pleasing to work with as I tend to tear rings in half when they are of softer wire. Very pleasing rings.

    This is my first time working with stainless steel and although I only just started a project with them, I am very pleased. They are not as difficult to open and close as I thought they would be. But I am glad I got the 18 gauge rather than the 16, though.

    The rings are weighed, labeled, packaged, and shipped well. I am so impressed at the clean cut non-burr rings I received. I will be ordering more of these.
