Description

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. Alloy 304. As of May 2017 all stainless steel wire has been annealed to create rings that are easier to work with. While they are easier to bend, stainless steel jump rings are still our toughest (strongest) rings to work with.

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 as springback can occur.

Occasionally you might get a misshapen ring or an end cut half ring. To account for this, we put extra rings in every bag. If you need to know outside diameter or need the ID in inches, please contact us.

    Love your stainless

    Sep 5th 2017

    Your stainless rings are much easier to open and close due to your annealing process than other suppliers. Also no cleaning or tumbling necessary
