Oval jump rings are used to connect two pieces of jewelry, such as if you want to make a necklace with a pendant and chain clasp. The oval shape of the ring allows for more flexibility in the jewelry, where a traditional ring might be too stiff or inflexible. Oval jump rings are also often used in silver jewelry making, as they can be hammered flat and soldered closed. Aside from the functional use, oval jump rings are also a great way to try on an idea for a design before starting a project. Oval jump rings can be made out of many different materials besides silver. Usually, sterling silver oval jump rings are used as they are classy and economical. Depending on what you are making the rings out of, the size and shape of the ring may change.
