RING

APPLICATION FILED IEB.,1, 1901.

MAX L. WEISS, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.

RING.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 732,245, dated June 30, 1903.

Application filed February 1,1901. Serial No. 45,539. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MAX L. WEISS, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of St. Louis, State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Rings, of which the following is a-specification.

My invention relates to finger-rings and similar articles of jewelry, and has for its principal object to mount initials, emblems, and other designs removably upon the hand without the interposition of boxes or stones.

It consists principally in providing a band or base with holes having shoulders therein and providing the initial or emblem with studs adapted to interlock with said shoulders so that the initial or emblem rests directly upon the band or base.

In the accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification, and wherein like numbers refer to like parts wherever they occur, Figure 1 is a side view of a ring embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a detail face View showing the top. Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1, showing the top and a portion of the band about to be assembled. Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view with the top fastened in position and showing the dismounting-tool in dotted lines. Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5 5 of Fig. 4 and at right angles to the plane of Figs. 3 and 4; and Fig. 6 is a view, partly sectional, of the dismounting key or tool.

My ring comprises a band 1 and a top 2 therefor. Theband is provided with two or more holes 3, each of which is provided with an annular shoulder 4 about midway of its depth. The top 2 is provided with two or more studs or pins 5, which are fastened or mounted on the under side thereof by any suitable means and are spaced at the proper distance to cooperate with the holes 3. Each of these studs or pins terminates in an enlarged head 6 of tapering or conical form, and the back of the head forms a square shoulder 7 for cooperating with the annular shoulder 4 of the band. Each of the studs or pins has a slot 8 extending from the conical end thereof nearly to the base, whereby two resilient prongs or arms 9 are formed. The perimeter of the enlarged headin the normal position of the arms is larger than the opening at the annular shoulder 4; but when the two parts of the head are pressed together its perimeter is small enough to pass through said opening. I

The parts are assembled merely by centering the studs over the holes and then pressing the top. The pressure causes the conical end of each stud to bear against the shoulder tin the hole of the band, and thereby the two parts of each stud are pressed together until the head is forced past the shoulder 4. Thereupon the resiliency of the two springarms 9 of the stud causes them to separate and thereby interlock the shoulder 7 of the head with the shoulder 45 of the band. In this position the tip of the head lies flush with the inner surface of the band or countersunk beneath the same, so as not to come in contact with the finger.

In order to dismountthe top 2, a key 10 is required. This key consists of a shank small enough to enter the hole 3 of the band from the inner side. The end of this shank has a conical socket whose taper conforms to the taper of the conical head of the stud or pin on the shank. In operation the keyis forced against the conical head of the stud from the inside of the band, whereby the two parts of the stud are pressed together, and thereby permit the withdrawal of the stud from its hole.

My device is particularly valuable for mounting gold initials, emblems, or other designs directly upon a gold band, and thereby avoiding the use of onyx or other stones. It also has the important advantage that any number of tops maybe made interchangeable merely by making the studs the same in each, whereby one band may serve for any number of tops. Another important advantage is that no tools or skilled workmanship is necessary for mounting the top on its base. It is further noted that this construction is particularly advantageous where it is desired to have the top mounted fiatwise on its base, inasmuch as the holes in the. base extend directly through the same and are provided with a shoulder midway of the thickness of the base.

Obviously my invention may be used for other articles of jewelry besides ringssuch, for instance,as brooches, ear-rin gs, studs,and cuff-bottons in which a top is to be mounted on a base-piece. Obviously, also, divers modifications may be made in the construction hereinbefore described without departing from my invention.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. An article of jewelry comprising a basepiece having one or more holes extending directly therethrough and a shoulder in each hole, and a top piece mounted flatwise on said base-piece, said top piece having tapering headed studs arranged to cooperate with said shoulders respectively, substantially as described.

2. An article of jewelry comprising a basepiece having one or more holes therein and a shoulder in each hole, and a top piece mounted flatwise directly against said base-piece 'having resilient headed studs arranged to cooperate with said shoulders respectively,suhstantially as described.

3. An article of jewelry comprising a basepiece having holes therein and a shoulder in each hole, and a top piece mounted fiatwise directly against said base-piece having studs provided with enlarged tapering heads arranged to cooperate with said shoulders respectively, and slotted endwise to make the parts thereof resilient, substantially as described.

41:. A ring consisting of a band having holes therein and shoulders in said holes, and a top mounted directly upon the band, and having studs thereon adapted to cooperate with said holes, substantially as described.

5. A ring comprising a band having holes therein and a shoulder in each hole, and a top mounted directly upon the band, and having resilient studs adapted to cooperate with said shoulders respectively, substantially as described.

6. A ring comprising a band having holes therein and shoulders in said holes, and a top mounted directly upon the band, and having endwise-slotted studs provided with tapering heads adapted to cooperate with said shoulders respectively, substantially as described.

7. A ring comprising a band having holes therein and shoulders in said holes, and a plurality of tops each arranged to be mounted directly upon the band, and having endwiseslotted studs provided with tapering heads adapted to cooperate with said shoulders respectively, substantially as described.

MAX L. W'EISS.
