Russell, Rustburg, Va. Application October 18, 1937, Serial N0. 169,730 5 Claims. (CI. 63-16) This invention relates to ?nger rings, and its general object is to provide a ring that is ad justable to ?t ?ngers of various sizes, can be adjusted in an easy and expeditious manner, be 5 fore or after being applied to the ?nger, and is held against any possibility of being moved out of adjustment, with the result my ring can be readily applied and removed with respect to a ?nger, and when applied thereto can be tight 10 ened to provide a snug‘ ?t, thereby preventing displacement or loss. A further object is to provide an adjustable ?nger ring, that is simple in construction, and extremely e?icient in operation, use and service. 15 This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be here inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom panying drawing and speci?cally pointed out in 20 the appended claims. In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing where in like characters denot like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which: 25 Figure l is a side elevation illustrating a ring constructed in accordance with the present in vention. Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of the adjusting device which forms the subject matter of ‘my in 30 vention. Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken therethrough, with parts in elevation. Figure 4 is a sectional view taken approximately on line 4-—4 of Figure 3. Figure 5 is a longitudinal sectional view taken 35 at right angles to Figure 3. Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 3 with the locking member in operative position. Figure 7 is a sectional view taken approximately 40 on line 'I-'| of Figure 6. Figure 8 is a View illustrating the ring applied to a ?nger and locked in adjusted position. Referring to the drawing in detail, it will be noted that I have illustrated my adjusting device 45 as being applied to a ?nger ring of the usual set type, but of course it will be understood that it can be applied to any type of ring, without de parting from the spirit of the invention. The ring as shown includes a band I that extends into a mounting 2 for the set or stone 3, the band being split and terminating in right hand and left hand threaded shanks 4 and 5 disposed in spaced alignment with each other. The shanks are shown as being integral with the band, but 55 they may be otherwise secured to the ends there of, and in any event are arranged at an angle with respect thereto, so as to be straight in align ment with each other. -, Cooperating with the shanks 4 and 5 is a sleeve 6 to provide therewith a turnbuckle, in that the sleeve has a bore 1 longitudinally extending there through and threaded to ?t and receive the shanks, so that upon rotation of the sleeve in one direction the shanks will be drawn toward each other and in an ‘opposite direction the shanks will be moved apart, for adjusting the diameter of the band I accordingly, as will be apparent. In order to hold the sleeve in adjusted posi- ‘ tion or against rotation, I have provided locking means therefor, and for that purpose, the sleeve is slotted diagonally as at 8, with the‘slot extending centrally through the sleeve witth re spect to its longitudinal axis. Bridging the slot centrally thereof is a pivot pin 9 that is shown 20 as being provided with heads in shaped to fol low the transverse curvature of the sleeve which is of substantially oval con?guration, as best shown in Figure 2, and having reduced ends 25 through which extends the bore 1. Mounted on the pin 9 is a turn button ll of substantially diamond shape in formation, to snugly ?t within the slot 8 as best shown in Fig ure 3, so as to allow free rotation of the sleeve 6 for adjusting the ring when the latter is ap plied to the ?nger as shown in Figure 8. When the ring has been adjusted to the proper size, the turn button is disposed to the position of Figure 6 to extend transversely of the sleeve and outwardly beyond the sides thereof, to contact 35 the ?nger, thereby preventing rotation of the sleeve, as will be apparent. The outer ends of the turn button II are rounded so as to prevent the same from injuring the ?nger, and the turn 40 button frictionally ?ts the pin 9, so that it will be held in either of itspositions against casual movement. The slot 8 is of a size to extend be yond the ends of the turn button when the latter is positioned therein, as best shown in Figure 3, 45 to provide ample space to receive the ?nger nail of the user in moving the turn button to its oper ative position of Figure 6. From the above description and disclosure of the drawing, it will be obvious that a ring con 50 structed in accordance with my invention can be readily adjusted to ?t ?ngers of various sizes, and is held in adjusted position on the ?nger, to prevent displacement or loss therefrom. It is thought from the foregoing description 55 2 2,105,796 that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent. It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims. What I claim is: 1. A ?nger ring comprising a band split to provide spaced ends, means movably mounted on 10 the spaced end portions of the band to vary the diameter thereof for adjustment to ?t ?ngers of various sizes and means eng-ageable with the ?nger and carried by the ?rst means to hold the 15 latter against movement. " 2. A ?nger ring comprising a, band split to provide spaced ends, a sleeve rotatably mounted on the spaced end portions of the ‘band to vary the diameter thereof for adjustment tor?t ?ngers 20 of various sizes, and means pivotally secured to the sleeve and engageable with the ?nger to pre vent rotation of the sleeve to hold the latter against rotation. 3. A ?nger ring comprising a band split to 25 provide spaced ends, threaded shanks on the spaced ends and being aligned with each other, a sleeve threadedly mounted on the shanks to vary the diameter of the band for adjustment thereof to ?t ?ngers of various sizes, and means 30 pivotally secured to the sleeve and engageable with the ?nger to hold the sleeve against move ment. 4. A ?nger ring comprising a band split to provide spaced ends, threaded shanks formed on the spaced ends and being aligned with each other, a sleeve having a threaded bore therein receiving the shanks for rotation thereon to vary the diameter of the band for adjustment thereof to ?t ?ngers of various sizes, said sleeve having a slot therein, and means pivotally mounted in 10 the slot for movement into and out of the same and engageable with the ?nger to hold the sleeve against rotation. 5. A ?nger ring comprising a band split to provide spaced ends, aligned threaded shanks 15 formed on the spaced ends, a sleeve having a threaded bore receiving the shanks for rotation thereon to vary'the diameter of the band for adjustment thereof to ?t fingers of various sizes, saidsleeve having a slot diagonally arranged therethrough and disposed centrally thereof, a turn button pivotally mounted in the slot and frictionally held therein, said turn button being movable into and out of said slot and of a length toengage the ?nger when moved out of said slot to hold the sleeve against rotation and said slot being of a length whereby access may be had to either end of the turn button for moving the latter out of said slot. 30 ROBERT A.
