Type: "Open" jump rings means that the ring has a break for a thread to slide through. The ends of the open ring tend to overlap for a mm, which classifies this specific product as a "open" jump ring, rather than a "split" ring or "closed" ring.
Size: As a general rule, the jump ring should be the size of the width (not length) of your clasp. Consider large clasps and rings for children and persons with difficulties using their hands. 6mm is approx. 0.25 inch across.
Gauge: The lower the number, the stronger the metal. I can bend 22 gauge easily with my fingers, for example. This 19 gauge will stand up well to being weighed down with a string of heavy beads or the tugging of little toddler hands. I don't know what the base metal is, but the wire is more difficult to bend than usual. A 19 guage is 0.9mm thick wire.
Summary: This jump ring is around 0.25" in diameter. It will stand up to considerable wear for necklaces and other jewelry projects. The size is good to match with small and medium lobster clasps. These are also handy when creating earrings, bookmarks, and other projects with dangles. The 6mm ring is the smallest I can count on closing without mangling the ring or badly scratching its finish.
Tying By The "Bead" Method: All you have is an open/split jump ring to go with your lobster clasp, and you have to finish that necklace today. First, find a tiny seed bead. Think a 3mm or 4mm spacer. Stick your ring through the bead, and close the ring, so the bead can't slip off. Then, run the cord of the necklace through the bead too (difficult with this 19 guage and thicker wire rings). Tie the necklace cord to the bead, being sure not to hook it onto the jump ring. Put a dab of glue on your knot, and you're done!
