Create your own unique jewellery with round jump rings and split rings

There’s nothing like homemade jewellery, and if you love making your own, round jump rings and split rings are a must. With round jump rings and split rings, you have a wealth of jewellery-making options, where they are used as the last link on a necklace, where a round jump ring and split ring allow you to close it around your neck.

Round jump rings and split rings work the same way on a bracelet, and you can also use them to attach other pendants to your jewellery.

That’s why round jump rings and split rings are essential for those who love to make their own jewellery and want to make it look beautiful and professional.

Of course, a round jump ring isn't just a round jump ring, and a split ring isn't just a split ring, because there are a wealth of different colours and sizes to suit different projects. That’s why it pays to have a varied range of round jump rings and split rings in stock, so you can always find the right one for a specific project.

At Creativ Company, we sell many different types of round jump rings and split rings, so you can easily find a ring that fits your particular jewellery in both size and colour.

What is the difference between round jump rings and split rings?

Round jump rings and split rings are both metal rings that can be used as the finishing link in a piece of jewellery, such as a necklace. However, there is a crucial difference between them.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the round jump rings. They are metal rings with small openings that make them easy to attach to a piece of jewellery. On each jump ring there is thus a small hole that allows it to be mounted on a necklace chain, for example. The small opening in the ring makes it easy to slide over a neck chain, for example, and when the jump ring is in place, simply squeeze it closed with a small pair of pliers.

Unlike round jump rings, split rings do not have an opening. They are more reminiscent of the key rings in your pocket, and a split ring is thus locked to a piece of jewellery by splitting the ring and pulling it over a chain, for example,  just as you do when you add a new key to your key ring.

Therefore, you do not need to close your split rings with pliers, and it is always easy to remove a split ring again, even if it is firmly attached to your jewellery.

How to make jewellery with round jump rings and split rings

As mentioned, round jump rings and split rings can be used for many different things by those who love to be creative and make their own jewellery. ound jump rings and split rings can be used both for practical and aesthetic reasons, so there is also a great deal of creativity associated with using them in your jewellery.

But in purely practical terms, round jump rings and split rings are necessary when it comes to locking a necklace or a bracelet. After you have fitted a clasp at one end of your necklace or bracelet, you will need to fit an o-ring or a split ring at the other end so that your clasp has something to grip when you want to lock the jewellery around your neck or arm.

ound jump rings and split rings work in exactly the same way; the only difference is the way the two metal rings are mounted on the jewellery piece.

Round jump rings and split rings are also handy when making earrings. Here, one of these metal rings allows you to easily add a pendant to your earrings, and the same technique can be used in all the other pieces you would like to make.

For example, if you want to add a pendant to a necklace, round jump rings and split rings are also the way forward, as they are easy to attach, allowing you to quickly connect two parts of a piece of jewellery. The same technique can be used for bracelets and ankle rings, so you can always easily add new pendants to your jewellery when you want to change the look of the piece or when you just want to add another beautiful piece to your jewellery.

Round jump rings and split rings are thus not simply dull metal rings that can be used to attach locking mechanisms. With round jump rings and split rings, you can create a wealth of exciting jewellery that will let you stand out from the crowd with your personal jewellery style.
