Rio Grande and others have a "ring tool" that is made for closing
jump rings without marring them. Basically, it is a sort of ring
with a slotted screw in it. You wear the ring on a finger or thumb
and use the slot in the screw to close the jump ring. Find it in
their Tools & Equipment catalog in the index under jump ring makers.
Or design one yourself.
