This invention relates to improvements in ?n
ger rings and has particular reference to ?nger
ring ensembles.

The principal object of the invention is the

of like internal diameters are so nested together
as to prevent relative movement thereof when
they are in position on the ?nger of the wearer.

To avoid relative rotary movement of the nested 20
rings, a groove 20 is formed in the side wall of
slot l2 and is adapted to receive ribs 22 formed
on the side walls of the secondary ring l4.
These grooves and ribs as shown are so positioned

When the primary ring is to be worn alone, it
may be rotated on the ?nger so that the slot
formed therein will be on the inside of the hand.
Also, a filler 26 is provided for ?lling the slot
in the primary ring, which consists of a semi- 45

pendently of any other ring, and when the wed
ding ring is obtained, it is the intention that
the engagement ring be nested therein and worn
as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, thereby presenting a
visible display of both rings on the top of the
?nger and also precluding the usual wear of the
two rings experienced when they are worn side
by side with no de?nite connection therebetween.
While but one form of primary and secondary
10 rings has been shown, yet it is apparent that
many changes might be made in either or both
‘ of these rings without departing from the salient
features of this invention. Also, the means de
scribed for preventing relative rotation of the
15 assembled rings might be differently positioned
and shaped if it is found advantageous for pur
poses of decoration or construction.
What we claim is:
1. A ?nger ring ensemble comprising a pri
20 mary band ring slotted transversely to its axis,
and provided with an internal groove intercon
necting the opposite ends of said slot; a secondary
set ring removably mounted in said primary ring
with a portion thereof resting in said groove
25 and with the said set positioned beyond the out
side periphery of the primary ring; and inter
locking means formed on the primary and sec
ondary rings to prevent relative rotation of the
rings.

2. A ?nger ring ensemble comprising a primary
ring slotted transversely to its axis, substantially
half way therearound, and having a groove
formed in the inner wall thereof to interconnect
the opposite ends of said slot; a secondary ring
adapted to be positioned through said slot with
its inner portion in said groove whereby the inner 5
circumferences of the two rings coincide; and
interlocking means securing said nested rings
against relative rotation.
3. A ?nger ring ensemble comprising a primary
band ring slotted transversely to its axis, and 10
provided with an internal groove interconnect
ing the opposite ends of said slot; an offset formed
in the side wall of said slot; and a secondary
set ring removably mounted in said primary ring
with a portion thereof resting in said groove and
with the said set positioned beyond the outside
periphery of the primary ring, and a projection
formed on the side wall of said secondary ring
adapted to engage said offset to prevent relative
rotary movement of the rings.
4. A ?nger ring ensemble comprising a primary
ring slotted transversely to its axis, substantially
half way therearound, and having opposed
grooves formed inwardly from the edges of said
primary ring at the slot midway between the ends
thereof; and a ?ller having fastening means en
gaging said grooves whereby it is releasably se
cured in position to cover said slot in the pri
mary ring.
