Description

Use silver-filled wire to get the bright whiteness of sterling at a very affordable price. You will appreciate both the durability and affordability of this high-quality material. The thickness of the sterling silver overlay on this wire constitutes a full 1/10th of its overall weight (twice the content of 1/20 silver-filled wire of the same gauge). This thicker silver layer lets you work deeper, polish more—even do light engraving—without exposing the brass underneath.

The sterling is bonded to a brass core (CDA #220; 90% copper/10% zinc). Because of the difference in color between the brass substrate and the silver exterior, this material also offers some design possibilities when treated as a bi-metal. By strategically sanding, cutting, polishing and so on, you can create some incredible, unusual effects.

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. Rings are sold by the troy ounce (ozt). Occasionally you might get a misshapen ring or an end cut half ring. To account for this, we put extra rings in every bag.

Please check our return policy before purchasing silver filled jump rings.
