This sterling silver oval Link Lock jump ring secures jewelry components without soldering. The distinctive locking function holds charms and other jewelry components without the risk of either a bent jump ring or heat damage from the soldering process. 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.
