I bought these in bulk for a project. I kept the extra with my other sterling silver supplies. These and three other sterling silver findings were the only ones that tarnished. The other items from other companies have kept .
I loved that this clasp is dainty enough for my smaller chains and has a closed loop. The open loop clasps that are dainty are too thin and the loop opens and breaks on finished pieces.
Wish this site sold closed loop spring clasps in gold plate or gold filled too.
This simple clasp is perfect to have on hand for any of your 'closure' needs. Great size, quality construction, and a beautiful finishing touch for any piece.
Recently I've been using safety chains on bracelets with all toggle clasps in order to prevent loss of the bracelet since all toggles,even those with curved bars, can come unfastened very easily. This sterling silver spring ring is small and it also opens wide enough and will attach to a variety of rings, chains etc.. It also, for its size, seems easy to open.
