Understanding Ring Size

Ring Size (and in particular aspect ratio) is one of the more complex and yet most useful concepts for a chainmailler to develop.  Understanding how ring sizes work for different weaves will give you a knowledge base to come back to again and again when starting a new project, troubleshooting, or developing your own weaves.

Please Note: It is important to understand that not all suppliers measure jump rings in the same way and due to the precise nature of chainmaille, measurements and sizes are not easily interchangeable.  The information in this section deals strictly with Blue Buddha jump rings.
