The antique finish on this round brass jump ring makes it an ideal choice for vintage-style designs. Use it to connect components or to create a chain with an antique look. 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.
