GEORGE E. SMITH, 0F MERIDEN', CONNECTICUT.

FINGER-RING GUARD.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 3, 1918.

Application filed February 26, 1918. Serial No. 219,242.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE E. SMITH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Finger-Ring Guard, of which the followingis a specification.

The device forming the subject matter of this application is a guard adapted to be applied to a finger ring, for the purpose of preventing the ring from rotating on the finger, to the end that the jewel or other ornament on the ring may be maintained in proper position.

The invention aims to provide a structure of the kind above mentioned which will hold the ring securely on the finger, without rendering the removal of the ring unduly difficult.

It is within the province of the disclosure to improve generally and to enhance the utility of device of that type to which the present invention appertains.

IVith the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, can be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 shows in elevation, a ring whereunto the guard forming the subject matter of this application has been applied;

Fig. 2 is a section taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 3 is an elevation showing the guard mounted on a ring differing slightly in construction from the ring depicted in Fig. '1.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, the numeral 1 denotes a ring having an opening 2 into which projects a jewel 3 or other ornament, held by a setting 4:.

In carrying out the present invention there is provided a guard fashioned from a resilient strip of material, preferably metal, the guard including an inwardly bowed bridge 5 and outwardly bowed arms 6 at the ends of the bridge. The places of juncture between the bridge 5 and the arms 6 are denoted by the numeral 7. Near these points 7, the arms 6 are provided with projecting ears 8.

In practical operation, the points 7 engage the inner curve of the ring 1, the free ends 9 of the arms 6 being received within the opening 2, and bearing against the ring at the edges of the opening. The ears 8 coact with the ring 1 to prevent the guard from moving laterally. The bridge 5 is spaced in its intermediate portion from the inner curveof the ring 1, and the arms 6 are spaced in their intermediate portions from the inner curve of the ring. The construction is such that a four-point engagement between the guard and the ring is provided, and owing to this construction, together with the relations existing between the bridge 5 and the arms 6 on the one hand, and the ring on the other hand, the guard will hold the ring against rotation on the finger of an operator, without rendering the removal of the ring unduly difficult. When the structure is in use, the arms 6 and the bridge 5 spring outwardly into the positions shown in dotted line in Fig. 1.

In Fig. 3, the numeral 10 marks a ring carrying a jewel or other ornament shown at 11, the ring 10 being devoid of the opening 2 shown in connection with the ring 1. When a ring like that depicted at 10 is used in connection with the guard, the free ends of the arms 6 bear as shown at 12 against the inner curve of the ring.

It is to be observed that the device forming the subject matter of this application avoids all of the objections arising when the guard is in the form of an arcuate member fitting snugly in the interior of the ring and having recurved inwardly projecting portions.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is 1. The combination with a finger ring, of a resilient guard embodying a bridge and arms at the ends of the bridge, the inter mediate portion of the bridge and the intermediate portions of the arms being spaced from the ring, the free ends of the arms and the places of juncture between the arms and In testimony that I claim the foregoing as the bridge engaging the ring, to afford a my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature 10 four-point support. in the presence of two Witnesses.

2. A device constructed as described in r w 1 j 5 claim 1, and further characterized by the GEOLOIL SMIJLH' fact that the guard is provided, adjacent Witnesses: the places of juncture between the arms and PATRICK T. OBnmN, the bridge, With ring-engaging ears. ALBERT BOARDMAN.
