This sterling silver push clasp component features a marquise shape. The spring-loaded push feature is easy to use and ensures a secure closure. Add a plain or fancy ring to the opposite side of the strand to complete the clasp. Push clasps are clasps designed to simply push onto a ring, engaging a spring mechanism that holds the clasp closed until it is pushed to open, allowing the parts to separate.
• Overall length indicates the length added to your strand by the clasp.
• Use care when soldering near springs or other movable mechanisms; the heat can damage these parts or alter the temper of the metal, reducing or destroying their effectiveness.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
