Sterling Silver Jump Rings

Our Sterling jump rings are made from half hard temper and 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. When half hard sterling silver wire is wound onto a mandrel it tends to spring back a little bit so the I.D. is slightly larger than the mandrel size listed. Use these I.D.s as a guide not an absolute.

All rings are tumble polished for a bright shiny beautiful jumpring.

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 sterling silver jump rings.
