Saw cut 16 gauge 5/16" inner diameter Stainless Steel jump rings.


All of our Stainless Steel is made from CANADIAN 304 Stainless Steel that is annealed, so it is softer and easier to bend than the 1/4 hard that most other companies make and sell.  We also order our wire with a bright finish, so it is clean, deburred and shiny for you to weave with right from the package!  Our Round and Square wire is the same and the sizing is the same - so our square rings work the same as the round - You don't have to figure a different size for our rings if they are square!  The twisted rings are made from square wire, which is twisted, then coiled, then cut, so is work hardened a little more than the others.  It is still MUCH easier to bend and manipulate than standard Stainless steel sold by other chainmail suppliers out there. 

Our rings are Cut in house, they are cleaned, tumbled, polished, dried and then packaged with love for you to create with! We LOVE our easier to work with stainless Steel... You will too!!

    Out of all of the jump ring companies I’ve tried I have to say hands down these are the best rings I’ve ever used! Very shiny and don’t wreck your wrists to bend on heavier gauges ! 10/10!

    This was part of my first order with Metal Designz. It will not be the last. I was impressed by the quality of the rings I bought and will be back

    Love them!!

    I know I have talked about the "dreamness" of working with MD's stainless for years on FB, but I guess not on their website. The rings are easier to work with due to the way they are made and the customer service is awesome.

    I have ordered these rings many times. They are sleek and strong. My customers prefer the high quality stainless steel for wallet chains.

    The only stainless I'll use!

    Posted by Katie Holder on 13th Dec 2019

    I can't tell you how much I LOVE the stainless steel offered by Metal Designz. This is the only stainless I'll use anymore - it's gorgeous, clean, and easy to work with. The 16 5/16 size is absolutely perfect for a half-Persian weave - and makes a nice, silky version!
