Anodized Aluminum are created in a process that uses dye, heat, electricity. The coating in shiney and bright, and is the most cost effective way to add colour to your chainmail designs. There can be colour differences between batches that are unavoidable, so we recommend buying more rings than you may need for one project, because the same colour in the next batch may not be the same. The easiest way to damage the colour coating is scratching it with steel so we recommend using pliers with NO teeth, and you can even use Tool Magic to help protect them!
This size of AA Ring is from our new anodizing Partner - The rings are coloured AFTER they are cut - so the cut marks are coloured, not silver.
