Recommended Jump Ring Sizes

These are the sizes I use in my jewelry - most of these are tested in sterling silver, but some I have put down what my calculator tells me according to the Aspect Ratio (AR) -- if they are untested, I make note of it. Copper and NuGold brass rings may be on the snug side for tight weaves.

Mobius rings -- can be any size you desire, but I like & use:

16g 10mm

 

Japanese 12-2

18g 4.0mm (any size will do, but I like 4-5mm)
20g 2.75mm (this is too snug in copper, so move up to 20g 3mm in copper)

a 14g sized ring can also fit through any 20g 2.75mm, such as in my Shenandoah/Enso pieces

 

Aura

large (pendant):
14g 10mm

Obviously, this is still a work in progress! If you'd like a size recommendation, please let me know and I'd be happy to test out sizes and let you know the best fit.
