BER-THOLD HOLZEL, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
ATTACHMENT FOR FINGER-RINGS.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, BERTHOLD HOLZEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at 10 West Twenty-third street, in the city of New York, county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Im pro'vements in Attachments for Finger- Rings, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to attachments for finger rings.
It provides a device of this character which enables a person to change a ring from a large finger and wear it on a smaller finger without discomfort or danger of losing the ring.
it further provides a device of this character which may be attached to the ring after the ring has been placed on the finger, and it serves to retain the ring in the proper position upon the finger.
My invention consists in the novel features of construction described herein, and illustrated in the drawings attached hereto and forming a part of this specification, and in which similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts.
Referring to the drawings: Figure 1 is an elevation view of a finger ring to which the device of my invention has been applied. Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of my invention. Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2, but showing the pivoted clip member in a different position. Fig. 4 is an enlarged View of the pivoted clip member.
My invention consists of a curved spring metal band 1 adapted to fit within a ring in the manner shown in Fig. 1. One end of the said spring metal band is formed with the clip member 3- integral therewith, and having the lugs et and 5- adapted to engage the ordinary ring in a position illustrated. The other end of the said spring metal band carries the clip member 2 pivoted thereto by means of a rivet or any other suitablefastening means. The clip member 2-- carries the lugs 6 and 7 integral therewith and bent in substantially the same manner as the lugs 4 and -5- of the clip member 3-,
. and disposed in the same relative position with respect to the spring metal band as the lugs of the clip member .3. The said lugs 6- and -7 are also adapted to engage the ring. The spring metal band is preferably formed with a curvature less Specification of Letters Patent.

than that of the inside of the ring to which the device is to be applied. In manufacturing however the said spring band may be made with a curvature less than the curvature of the inside of the largest ring carried in stock by the ordinary jeweler, thereby adapting the device to be used on any of the ordinary size rings without altering the curvature of the spring band.
In applying the device to the ring the spring clip members 2- and 3 are sprung onto the ring, the bottom surface of the said spring band lying adjacent the inside surface of the rin 3 The ring may then he slipped over the finger in the usual manner. The resiliency of the spring band allowing it to pass over the knuckle of the finger, but holding the ring firmly in place against the finger.
The particular advantage in the device of my invention lies in the fact that the piv oted clip member 2- allows the device to be placed in position on the ring after the ring has been applied to the finger. In applying the device to the ring, after the ring is on the finger, the pivoted clip member 2 is turned to the position shown in Figs. 3 and 4t and sprung onto the inside of the ring. The spring metal band carrying the clip member 3- is then pushed in under the ring between the ring and finger and the clip member 3- sprung into place. It is evident that this last mentioned manner of applying the device to the ring is particularly advantageous where the ring is not large enough to allow the ring to slip over the knuckle with the device already inside. And herein lies the advantage of my device over the devices of-this character on the market at the present time, for most of these devices must be applied to the ring before the ring is placed on the finger.
It is evident that modifications of the pre cise construction of my invention, as illustrated and described herein, may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention,
What I claim by Letters Patent of the United States of America is:
1. An attachment for finger rings comprising in combination, a spring metal band of less curvature than the ring and adapted to be positioned within the ring, a spring clip member disposed at one end of the said band, a second spring clip member disposed at the opposite end of the band from said first mentioned spring clip member and piv- 'from said first mentioned clip member and 10 oted thereto, substantially as described. pivoted thereto, substantially as described.
2. An attachment for finger rings, com- In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature prising in combination, a spring metal band in the presence of tWo Witnesses.
of less curvature than the rin and adapted to be positioned Within the ring, a clip mem- BERTHOLD HOLZEL' ber disposed at one end of the said band and Witnesses: integral therewith, a second clip member RUDOLPH I-IANAN, disposed at the opposite end of the band Orro BUsnoK.
