Although Midwest Maille specializes in chain maille kits with Argentium® sterling silver, I also want to be able to offer my customers a less expensive alternative, like the following chain maille kits with non tarnish silver plated jump rings.
After doing extensive testing on silver plated wire from several different companies, I finally found a quality non tarnish silver plated wire to create my new line of non tarnish silver plated jump rings like the ones included in the following chain maille kits.
The wire that I use to make my non tarnish silver plated jump rings is made by using 99% pure copper wire that is plated with 99% pure fine silver … then a clear coat is added to prevent tarnishing. Because of these jump rings have a clear coating they should not be tumbled. When your jump rings are closed, the copper core is hidden inside. My non tarnish silver plated jump rings are not as bright as my Argentium® sterling silver jump rings, instead, my non tarnish jump rings have the look of a beautiful satin finish.
