-MOURNI NG BAND ATTACHMENT FOR WEDDING RINGS Fil ed June 16, 1937 Patented Aug. .30, @358 a ATTAG pins as in m- Foa wan .ioseph W. Gittler, Phiiadelphia, Pa. Appiication June is, east,- sem N6. 148,456

for the space to be occupied by the connectingweb of the two flange bands.

A further object of the invention is to provide a mourning band attachment invthe form of a split ring constituting'the two flange bands and the connecting web whereby the mourning band as a whole may be contracted and fitted into a wedding ring and thereafter fixed to the wedding ring and the ends of the mourning band joined if found desirable.

Another object of the invention is to construct a mourning band attachment in the form of an endless ring including the web and the two flange bands on which the wedding ring will be mounted by first splitting the latter, assembling it on the mourning band attachment and then adding the necessary additional metal to fill the space between the ends of the split wedding ring,

A further object of the invention is to provide a mourning band attachment in which the web and flange bands are fashioned from a sheet of suitable material and provide a filler betweeen adjacent portions of the sheet material forming the flange bands or making said flange bands solid and integral with the web.

A still furtherobject of the invention is to I provide a mourning band attachment of the character described having apertures in the web thereof so that any matter delineated, depicted or engraved on the inside of the wedding ring will remain visible.

With the above and other objects in view, this invention consists of the details of construction and combination of elements hereinafter set forth and then designated by the claims.

In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains may understand how to make and use the same, I will describe a number of forms of construction, referring by numerals to the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a broken sectional view of a mournin as assembled with a wedding ring.

Fizz. 2 is a fragmentary sectional view of an assembled ring and mourning band attachment, I

illustrating a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 3 is a broken perspective'view of the assembled mourning band attachment and wedding ring, a portionof the latter being broken away to more clearly illustrate details of construction.

Fig. 4 is an edge view thereof having parts I broken away and shown in section to illustrate the finished article. Y 1

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional view showing another form of the invention.

In carrying out my invention as herein em-- bodied, (particular reference being firsthad to Figs. 1, 3 and 5,) l0 represents a wedding ring of material such as gold, silver, platinum or similar material and of any ordinary, well known or conventional configuration, since the style of thewedding ring does not in. itself enter into the invention.

As there is considerable sentiment attached to a person's wedding ring, it is often desirable in some way to symbolize on the wedding ring that the wearer is in mourning for the donor of the ring. To this end, I have found that placing two relatively narrow black bands at the sides of the wedding ring will accomplish the desired purpose.

In one form of the invention I provide a mourning band attachment ,H comprising a web l2 imposed on the inside of the wedding ring and form two flange bands l3 with the web which are to be against the sides of the wedding ring,

the whole attachment being secured in place by a suitable adhesive M or equivalent, so that the wedding ring and the mourning band attachment become a unitary structure- Said mourningband attachment may be in the form of a split ring so that said attachment can be contracted and assembled on the wedding ring as will be obvious. After the attachment has been assembled on the ring the ends of said attachment may be joined as indicated at IS in Fig. 5. If the wearer's finger has become thinner it will be unnecessary to change the size of the wedding ring, as the web I! of the attachment is relatively thin, but where the ring withfthe attachment thereon cannot be'worn by the original wearer, then it will benecessary to enlarge the wedding ring by first splitting the same transversely andadding the necessary amount of metal IE to again complete the wedding ring as shown in Fig. 4.

The wedding band attachment is to be produced from any suitable black material such as black metal, black enamel, black onyx or the ends then filled up the same as previously men-.

- tioned.

In the modification shown in'Fig. 2 the mourning band attachment I8 is made from suitable black sheet material and the sides fashioned into a return bend to provide outer walls i9 and inner walls of the flange bands- 21 which are connected with the web 22. In order to prevent the flange bands from being dented or otherwise damaged, the spaces between the walls i9 and 20 have a filler 23 therein.

Alter the mourning band attachment is assembled on the ring in any of the several ways previously described, said mourning band attachment and wedding ring are fixed together by a suitable adhesive '24. This form of mourning band attachment may also have apertures 25 formed in the web 22 for the same purpose as the apertures previously described.

In actual practice, the adhesive for connecting the mourning band attachment to the wedding ring should also be'black and should fill up any spaces between the attachment and the wedding ring in order to form an unbroken surface which would be caused by any engravings or irregulari ties along the edges of the-wedding ring.

2,128,644 like. In the web of the mourning band attach- I From the foregoing it will be obvious that I have provided an exceedingly simple and effective attachment for wedding rings which will symbolize that the wearer is in mourning for the donor of the ring and the wedding ring will be practically unmarred.

Of course I do not wish to be limited to the exact details of construction herein shown and described as these may be varied within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of my invention. 1

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and useful is: v

l. The combination with a wedding ring of a mourning band attachment comprising a transversely split circlet of black material and including a web and flange bands, said circlet being assembled on the wedding ring by contracting the circlet and fitting it into the ring, and an adhesive between the sides of the ring and the flange bands.

2. A wedding ring mourning band attachment .of black sheet material fashioned to provide a split circlet and including a web and outwardly projecting fiange bands, eachflange band having laterally spaced walls, and a filler between said laterally spaced walls of each flange band.

3. A mourning bandattachment for wedding rings comprising a black transversely split circlet and including a web and outwardly projecting JOSEPH w. GI'I'rnER. V
