100 Silver Filled open jump rings perfect for jewellery making, especially chainmaille. Saw cut and then tumbled polished for a high quality finish.
I inspect each one by hand after tumbling to ensure the quality.
The wire diameter is AWG 18 (approx. 1.0mm). Other wire sizes available in other listings.
The size options in the listing refer to the Inner Diameter of the ring (ie the size of mandrel used).
Silver Filled is where a layer of Sterling Silver is bonded onto a base metal (in this case brass). The ratio of Sterling Silver to brass core by weight is 1/10 for these rings.
Silver Filled makes a more economical alternative to Sterling Silver but has the same look and feel, as the outer layer is the same. It is also a more durable option than silver plating, where a only a microscopic film of silver is layered onto a brass core and the plating can wear off.
