Clasps & Closures

View Mode:  

Shop for our wholesale jewelry clasps including lobster claws, spring rings, toggles, magnetic clasps, shorteners, hook & eye clasps and safety clasps. Fancy fasteners can add appeal to your custom necklace or bracelet designs. It is a large selection so you may want to use filters or sort by price for easier navigation. These items are used to finish jewelry chains and beading work. Note that lobster claws and spring rings contain internal springs made of stainless steel for durability.

If you are new to jewelry making, please read our quick reference article  Glossary of Jewelry Clasps and Closures. These indispensable components may be called hardware; but, in the field, they are more commonly grouped under jewelry findings.

When selecting a closure for a design, keep in mind the weight of the piece and the dexterity of your audience. Spring ring clasps are affordable, but they are difficult to use for larger accessories or clients with less nimble fingers. Lobster claws are easier to operate behind the neck and add perceived value to your creation. Toggles and magnetic clasps are easier still and often prefered by consumers. However, both require the right balance of tension on the clasp and weight on the jewelry item. Weight is an important consideration because many lightweight necklaces with heavy clasps will spin around the neck so that the clasp ends up dangling as a pendant. Think about how to balance the elements of your design so the piece will lay on the body as you intend.

To attach a clasp, select compatible jump rings to connect it to chain, beading or metalwork. We recommend soldering jump rings closed whenever possible for durable, secure connections. Use chain nose pliers to assemble your finished creation with the closure you choose.
