Cut down on your work time with this sterling silver solder-filled round jump ring, which makes short work of fusing the ring closed in a permanent seam and decreases the possibility of expensive melting mistakes. The bright white sterling silver ring is a versatile component that works with any type of jewelry in any design style. 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.

• 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.
