Chainmail has a long history dating back to antiquity, and the Romans adopted it after they realized its potential while fighting the Celts. However, plate armor was prohibitively expensive, and the average soldier in the Middle Ages relied on chainmail as their primary form of defense.

The term “chainmail” is an English combination of two words: “chain,” which refers to a series of metal rings that fit into one another, and “mail,” which is derived from the French word “maille,” which is derived from the Latin macula,” which means “mesh.” Mail had several advantages as a form of protection: it was flexible (allowing for freedom of movement), it was simple to make, it was quick and straightforward to repair, it was inexpensive, and it could be easily fitted to men of any size.

These modern chainmail jump rings are precision cut and system matched for diameter and color consistency from Artistic Wire made with non-tarnish craft wire. Accurate inside diameters preserve design aspect ratios, and the rings’ consistent shape aids in maintaining a uniform geometric weave.
Mail can be used in sculpture and jewelry, mainly when made of precious metals. In addition, mail has been used to make Christmas ornaments, chess sets, and other items.
