EXQUISITE JUMP RINGS EXPERTLY MADE FOR YOU TO ENJOY
We operate rigorous standards of quality control to ensure that every jump ring we sell is of the highest standard. If it isn't perfect, you can't have it!
All the wire we use is round in cross-section. As well as being available in our standard sized pack of 200 jump rings, due to popular demand we also have sterling silver jump rings in packs of 25 jump rings available in all jump ring sizes, because you don't always need 200! And we have packs of 100 and 1000 jump rings too (and packs of just 10 jump rings in some 1.6 mm sizes). Our copper jump rings are available in packs of 200 and 1000 jump rings. Our gold jump rings are made by special order to your specifications.
The wire is hand fed to coil it around a mandrel, and the resulting coil is then cut into jump rings with a high powered precision saw with an extremely thin blade. The jump ring size is denoted by the mandrel used to make it. Due to the springback of the wire, the internal diameter of the coil is a lttle larger than the diameter of the mandrel used to make it. Springback is when the coiled wire relaxes and tries to straighten itself when the coil is cut from the main spool of wire, releasing tension, and the coil uncoils a little. Thus the resulting jump rings have an internal diameter slightly larger than the actual mandrel used to make them. If the wire didn’t springback, the coil would never slip off the mandrel! Springback varies between wire manufacturers for the same metal, and also between different metals. For example, copper has less springback than sterling silver, so jump rings made from copper and sterling silver using the same mandrel and same wire thickness will be different sizes - the copper jump ring will be slightly smaller than the sterling silver jump ring.
We denote our jump ring sizes as follows: wire diameter/mandrel size/pack size. So 1.0/3.5/200 indicates a pack of 200 jump rings made from 1.0 mm diameter wire wound around a 3.5 mm mandrel.
We use both metric and imperial mandrels, which gives us the very best selection to choose from to enable us to make the perfect sized ring for a specific weave. All the mandrel sizes are expressed in millimetres.
