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.

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

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.

    Absolutely Perfect for what I needed!

    This goes across the board with all their material, but I LOVE how brilliant the colors are. Even the onyx jump rings are perfect! Making a Spartacus-themed bracelet and it's going to be GLORIOUS! Thanks so much for being awesome!

    The color is exquisite (as are all of the rings I've ordered from your company) and I find I cannot wait to craft beautiful things to catch the eye of others. Your products are always of the best quality and I happily suggest you to everyone I know who is a mailler (of any caliber)

    I had to return them

    Sep 18th 2018

    Customer service is great. They exchanged my 18 awg 5/32 rings that were not the same size as my other rings of the same size that I had ordered. They double checked the inner diameter to make sure they matched my other rings. I am doing an inlay.

    Ordered 7 different colors of jumprings. Color is even and really bright, shining, and true to its description. Seamless closures and jumprings are easy to work with. Expect to order more in the future. Customer service is excellent!

    Love the colors & the light weight

    Sep 24th 2017

    This was my first time buying AA. I really loved the colors! The light weight was great for doing my first Dragon Scale weave. It did take me some time to get used to closing them well. I've been using enameled copper since I started Wire work. Years before I tried Chainmaille. I know how it moves and the aluminum was a little bit harder for me. However, the rings did close very well and the product was great! I still prefer copper, but for heavy weaves, I can definitely see using AA in the future.

    AA rings are first class, great colors!
    Unfortunately, know what you are ordering!
    I am used to ordering SWG material, didn't realize or notice WGM sells AWG. Therefore when I received my rings, when I ordered 18g, I actually got 19g. Absolutely an error on my part.
    So know what you are ordering!
    P.S. I placed another order, this time ordering 16g, to get 18g.
