Jump Rings – Argentium Silver Round Wire

Argentium Silver Round Wire Rings

Argentium sterling silver is a patented and trademarked alloy that contains germanium which replaces some of the copper that is usually the other 7.5% of the sterling silver alloy. The Argentium sterling silver alloy is 92.5% silver, 6.3% copper and 1.2% germanium. What makes Argentium so special is that due to the addition of the germanium it becomes tarnish resistant, fusible, and firescale free. Please see the FAQ page for more information on Argentium silver.

All wire gauges used below are half hard temper and American Wire Gauge (AWG), which is also known as Brown and Sharpe (B&S). All sizes listed are inside diameter (I.D.), measured in millimeters and fractions of an inch, and correspond to the size of the mandrel onto which the wire is wound. When half hard Argentium silver wire is wound onto a mandrel it tends to spring back a bit so the I.D. is slightly larger than the mandrel size listed. Use these I.D.'s as a guide not an absolute.

Rings are sold by the troy ounce (ozt). Quantity discount pricing is applied automatically any time 5 or more ozt of a single ring size is added to the cart.
