Q: What's the deal with
the "silver plated" and "gold
A: I don't make them.
They're imported. The inside is base metal which can be
just about anything. The outside is silver plated.
Q: What's the difference
between the imported ones on this page and the
"silvery" ones that you make?
A: Mine are pure copper
inside. The "Colored" rings are enameled and
then coated with a polyurethane and nylon mixture to
protect the surface. The "Silvery" ones are
enameled and silver plated and then coated to prevent
both tarnish and protect from wear. They come in
lots of brilliant colors including silver and gold.
Q: Why should I buy
A: They're shinier than
my "Silvery" rings. My Silvery rings are a
little bit duller owing to the plastic coating.
The Silver Plated come in more sizes than the ones I make.
Q: Why should I buy your
"Silvery" rings instead?
A: I think they hold up
better. I've been told that the ends meet more closely
Q: Where are
A: Look at the menu on
the left. I make the 18g Color, 18g Silvery, 20g Color,
20g Silvery, Mixes and Copper. I also make the Chain
Maille Kits on the top section of that page; the ones
where you pick the colors. The imported rings are
only on the "Silver Plated" page and
"Gold Plated" page.
