Ask a Question
  • We have gem jars and some rings have become badly corroded. I do not know what the metal composition is. I am interested in the rings you offer but want one that is resistant to this. Thank you.

    In our experience zinc corrodes faster than aluminum.  Aluminum corrodes but slowly (or in the dishwasher) but it can be scrubbed to a shine using S.O.S. pads.  Bernardin makes new gem jar lids and bands, but these can rust.   Unfortunately, due to the limited demand for Gem jars, there are no plastic or other commercial accessories made for this size that we are aware of.  If you find any please let us know at info@masonjarmerchant.com. :)

  • How Many rings do you get for the price?
