This review pertains only to the gold colored D rings. I don't know what is up with Amazon reviews, but you'll read reviews for other products under the product you're researching. Get it together Amazon!
Anyway, I am returning these rings. The "gold" colored rings are orange and look nothing like actual gold. I believe the seller is aware of this because they over exposed the photo depicting these rings, making them look much lighter. In reality these gold D rings look like cheese puffs.
I also ordered a gold purse chain from this seller, received in this shipment, and the gold looked like gold (well, fake gold, but what we all agree fake gold is supposed to look like). These gold D rings will not match other gold hardware on whatever you are making. I don't know what went wrong with the plating but somebody dun messed up. I'm returning these D rings. The purse chain looks good though (actually it IS a little orange, but somewhat within the bounds of reason) so I am keeping it, and I might even use it, but these D rings, no, they are unreasonably orange.
I recommend a pass on these gold D rings unless you like cheeto colored D rings. Or... you are building something with gold hardware that is really, really, REALLY orange and you want these to match.
Best of luck fellow craftpeople!
Ah, shoot, a PS - the rings appear to be competently shaped/constructed D rings, at the larger size the thickness of the wire appears a little thin, but I think that could be personal taste.
The price on these is great. However, they didn’t match with the rivets I’m using so I will have to rerun. I purchased the dee rings and the strap sliders and they both seemed to be durable and of good quality. Would recommend if you are looking for this color and not a more coppery tone like I was.
the seams are jagged, requires a lot of filing else rope material snags and frays. I make slip dog leads using cotton poly blend rope. This color is an improvement over the silver rings I'd used. The color of these looked, and is very very good, and the plating is deep. I found from unwanted filing! If your application can't tolerate a jagged seam, these are not the right rings for you.
Crocheters: These little buckles work well with crocheted straps. I made a collar for my amigurumi pet. The sliding bar in the middle made it easy to attach the strap and slide it through to close. Not all these tiny buckles seem as though they will work with the thickness of crocheted fabric. (My strap is made of Caron Simply Soft: 3 rows of sc on a foundation chain.)
Also had to buy this to fix my replica LV bag!! I needed ONE out of the whole pack! Wish the packaging wasn’t so much! But it totally fixed what had been lost! Now I can wear my beautiful replica again! No shame!!
I ordered these for a project but they’re a little bulkier than I had anticipated. Their quality item but they seem like they’re more for utility items rather than clothing or accessories. Also after receiving them I worried about how hot the metal would get in the sun. The item was as it appeared but I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. I did save them and hopes I can use them for the future but I haven’t used them yet
