This sterling silver oval jump ring is an ideal choice to connect components, attach clasps or pendants, or link with other jump rings to form a chain. Made from tempered wire, it is stronger, resistant to marring, and easier to close and solder. 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.
