This Argentium® Silver round jump ring has the strength of sterling with a brighter finish. Made from tempered wire, it is stronger, resistant to marring, and easier to close and solder. Rings of 16 gauge and finer are good options for chain mail or woven link designs and connecting components in jewelry designs. Because Argentium fuses well, you can skip the solder and fuse the ring closed for extra strength in your connections. Jump rings are made from coiled wire and have an opening that allows you to insert it through a ring, loop or hole on another finding. A staple of the jewelry-making industry, these rings are ideal as attach rings for component designs, as strand or chain ends, and as links for creating chain. Solder rings closed to ensure that connections are permanently secure.
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright-white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and less likely to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
