Bulk Ring Discount - We have revamped the way our site is set up so the Bulk Ring Discount is now included in the ring count pricing... The more rings you buy, the cheaper they get!

Commercial Customers - If you own a bead store, or gift shop and would like to carry our products, please contact us in regards to our bulk discounts.  We have a large first order requirement, as we appreciate all our customers, and want to be as fair on discounts as possible. 


 

Ring Size

There are two Standard methods of measuring rings. Imperial Inches, or Metric Millimeters. We've always used imperial in our own work so this it the method we will sell our rings. If you are used to using Metric measure and need some advice on which size rings to use, please contact us and ask! Thanks!

SQUARE WIRE -- Stainless Steel, Bronze and Copper -- We use 1.0mm square wire for 18g and 1.45mm Square wire for 16g.  We chose this size so our square rings WORK the same as round wire rings in the same size... Example - 18g 5/32" is perfect for byzantine in square and round wire rings!

We use the sizes we do as our main wire supplier uses them as well. It's just more convient for us than to try and find new suppliers that use one system or another.
