Whats a good size for JPL? I know I want about AR 3 but as there are several ring sizes that can be 3 I was hoping to get a better recomendation. I want to make my mom, mother-in-law, and wife, JPL bracelets out of silver and gold fill. I like heavier jewelry but I would rather go with something feminine and elegant. Is 20 ga to big? too small? Just trying to tap the knowledge base here and make sure I get the right rings.

From TRL I get saw cut 20g (awg) 3/32" rings for JPL in silver and gold-fill. This makes a chain about 5/32" in diameter (about 3mm). This is the most popular size of JPL that I sell.

I have 21 per inch in my pricelist. I always round up when it comes to partial rings in smaller gauges so an *exact* count might be 20 or 20-point-something.
