Description

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
SAMUEL BUCHSBAUM, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
RING.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 569,998, dated October 27, 1896.
Application filed. March 11, 1896. Serial No. 582,747. (No model.)
T0 at whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, SAMUEL BUCHSBAUM, a citizen of the United States, and aresident of Chicago, Cook county, Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rings, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
My invention relates to finger-rings, and particularly to What are known as initialrings, and the object of my invention is to provide a setting which can be quickly removed and as quickly, easily, and securely reset whenever desired, so that a jeweler, for instance, having a stock of rings and a complete alphabetical list of the settings can quickly adjust a setting having any initial desired by a purchaser, substantially as hereinafter fully described, and as illustrated in the drawings.
Figure 1 is a top or plan View of the ring. Fig. 2 is a section therethrough, taken on dotted line 2 2, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken through the ring on dotted line 3 3, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a top or plan of the ring with the set removed, and Fig. 5 is a plan of the inverted setting.
In the drawings, A represents the band or hoop of the ring, and B the bezel thereof. The bezel of the ring is provided with an opening 1) therethrough, which extends from the inner circumference of the hoop to the exterior of said bezel, and the outer edges 0 of said opening I) are rabbet-ed, so as to form a seat for the setting 0, concerning which more will be said hereinafter. The opening I) may correspond in its contours to the outline of the setting 0, or may be shaped otherwise, and it is provided with a cross-bar d, which may span it diametrically, or as a chord of a lesser segment.
The setting 0 in initial-rings is generally elliptical, but whatever its shape is it fits snugly in its seat in the bezel, which, as explained, is made by rabbeting the edges of opening 17 therein. The setting is generally made quite fiat, the exposed side being ornamented as desired, and the under side being made of gold or gold-plated metal, and having a leaf-spring D, one end of which is permanently secured to its back or under side at a point near the edge of the same. The remainder of the length of the spring extends centrally across said back in such direction that when fittedin its seat it Will be at right angles to and clasp the bar 0?, and it is curved, so that its end is bent downward slightly.
In operation the setting is seated in the bezel of the ring by catching the end of the spring D under the bar d and then pushing the setting toward said bar until the setting is in register with its seat in the ring, whereupon the elasticity of the spring snaps the setting into the seat and securely holds it in place. The only way, then, that the setting can be removed is by forcing it outward until its edges are out of its rabbeted seat. Accordingly I accomplish the removal of the setting by pushing outward against the under side of the same and near the edge thereof near which said spring is secured. \Vhen its edges clear the edges of opening 6, Ipush it laterally away from the bar until the spring releases said bar, whereupon it can be removed. IVh-ile I prefer the shape of spring D as shown, yet it could be changed, and if it operated to hold the setting to the bar it would come within the scope of my invention. It is, of course, immaterial what the shape of the setting is, or whether or not the setting is what is known as as an initial-setting, as it is obvious any gem or other attractive setting might be secured in a ring in this way.
If desired, the opening I) need not necessarily extend clear through the bezel, but a depression in the face of the latter in which the seat might be made might be substituted therefon I much prefer the full opening I), however.
'What I claim as new is 1. Afinger-ring having a bezel with a rabbeted seat in its face and a cross-bar extending from side to side thereof, in combination with a setting the outlines of which conform to the contours of said seat, having a flat spring secured to its under side which engages said bar, as set forth.
2. A finger-ring having a bezel with an opening therethrough having its outer edges rabbeted and having a cross-bar extending from side to side thereof, in combination with a setting the outlines of which conform to the contours of said seat and having a flat spring one end of which is secured to its back 10 near the edge of said setting so as to be at right angles to said bar, as set forth.
