    Hello all!
    I am new here and I need some advice. I collect all types of charms, silver and gold, but need advice. I have some very old retro charms in 14kt and 18kt. gold that I inherited from my deceased aunts. I am creating a new bracelet for myself from these charms and because some of them are quite heavy (some are weighing in at 13 to 14 grams) I need to know a proper size jump ring to buy or use for heavier type charms. So, what do you use when you have a heavy charm? I contacted a person on Ebay who claims to be a jeweler and said an average charm would use a 6mm jump ring but for mine maybe go to jewelry store in person and see what they say. Well, I know they will charge a good deal and perhaps tell me to custom make jump rings. I would appreciate any and all comments to my inquiry. Thank you!

    • the best jump rings if you aren’t going to have them soldered are the snapeez ‘magic no solder’ junp rings which can be bought from either’a genuine find’ or ‘echarmony’ sellers – there are links to them at the top of the page. i suggest 8mm but 6mm will work also. i don’t suggest that you use 14l gold because solid gold is too soft for such large charms. congratulations on inheriting such wonderful reminders of your family! i’d love to see a picture when you finish your bracelet.
