Shop classic key rings, titanium key rings and swivel clips from Rings & Things, perfect for your custom key ring creations. For durability, use the heaviest gauge jump ring that you can, to attach your custom woodwork, a metal stamped design, a sparkling crystal, a sports charm & your favorite team's colors... anything you desire! (Maybe even a key...)
Split Rings are strong, durable connectors. Because of their overlapping construction style, they can't be easily tugged open, so they are more secure than jump rings. Split rings can tug at delicate hairs on the back of the neck, so they are more popular for bracelets and anklets, especially for people who require a tougher connection than is provided by jump rings.
- Small 5-9mm split rings are perfect for most jewelry making.
- Medium 12-15mm split rings can be used for larger jewelry, as well as wind chimes and pet jewelry.
- Large 20-33mm split rings are generally used for custom key rings.
Split ring pliers and split-ring tweezers make the 5 to 15mm sizes very easy to use, and for the larger 20-33mm key ring sizes, a letter opener or an office staple remover works well.
