Bright Aluminum Jump Rings 16 gauge AWG = 3/64" (1.2mm) - Metric ID

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

Sku: BA16


Our Bright Aluminum jump rings are alloy 5356. (16 gauge AWG = 1.29 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.

    These were part of a larger order. They’re perfect rings and worked well with the niobium I got. Customer service was amazing. Vicki helped me figure out exactly what I needed for a particular piece and then made sure to ship everything that same day so I could get the rings in time for a rush order. I love this business and will get my rings here in the future.

    I ordered these for a specific project and couldn't be more pleased. They are easy to open/close, are nice and shiny, and have no burs that need attention. WGM definitely has the best products available.

    These are easy to work with and look awesome! The kid loves her Olympic themed pendant. They shipped fast and were perfect right out of the package. Will order from here again.

    Jewelry quality jump rings

    I've bought more JRs than I care to reveal, all from WGM.

    This is an excellent product. It is highly polished, bright, and looks like silver when made in to chain maille (better than silver as it doesn't tarnish).

    The JR ends are usually smooth and not rough edged.
    I have encountered very few misshapen JRs.

    I like that the JRs are provided in metric and English measurements, so you just buy the size you need and create.

    WGM appears to have the largest range of sizes available from my extensive web browsing.

    Price is decent. Which is to say, WGM seems expensive, but on a WEIGHT basis AND not having to worry about tumbling, polishing and deburring, the price is very competitive. Mainly the priciness comes from the number of JRs it takes to complete a project.

    In summary, if you are just starting with chain maille jewelry, the bright aluminum rings are fantastic. They look really good made into a project. Just wish I had more money to buy really large amounts.

    I like that they provide free ship with a minimum. That helps a lot.
