May 31, 1938. T, E FOSTER ‘ 2,119,229 FINGER RING Filed March 15, 1937 1 | ‘ Tony. 1E. Foster, lindianalia, Ind, lanes to Her?-llonw dict, dianapolis, lind. Application March 113, lldt‘i', Serial No. M01333 ll @ll (ill. 63-15) This invention relates to a method of term- ing a ?nger ring and has for its primary object the forming of a ring which will have a massive appearance accompanied by light weight and at the same time permitting the forming oi the ring entirely out of a single metal without hav ‘ing to employ less precious metals or the like for ?llers. A still further primary object of the invention is to form a ring of the above indi w cated nature from a number of parts which may be assembled and formed into an integral ring without having exposed edges of the juncture ‘of di?erent metals. ““ " i _ These and otherv objects and advantages of the inventionjwill become apparent to those versed in the art in the following description of one particular embodiment of the invention as illus pressed zone ii is likewise curved and in so do ing, the extreme upper areas of the shoulders ii and it are brought into a ?attened condition,. both‘ coming then into the same plane. In order to accomplish this result, these shoulders it and 1 it have their upper faces originally concave as indicated in Figs. 1 and 2. Any suitable mounting crown is then formed to be carried on these upper ?attened faces of the shoulders it and it. In the form herein shown, Fig. 5*, the crown it is generally oblong in shape and proportioned to have the upper sides of its ends rest respectively on these upper faces oi'the shoulders l2 and iii to have the ends of the crown coincide with the outer margins of these shoulders. or course any desired orna mentation may be employed about the crown " piece it but for the sake of clearness, the crown trated more or less diagrammatically in the ac companying drawing, in which r is herein shown as having plain or outer walls - 20 Fig. 1 is a top view in perspective of a ?nger ' devoid of ornamentation. band blank; Fig. 2, a similar view if a slightly modified form of the blank; - Fig. 3, the blank formed into a ring; Fig. i, a view in perspective of a side plate 25 here shown as plain in‘ design; Fig. 5, a top view in perspective of a mounting crown; ' Fig. 7, a top perspective View of a completed ring; and ' 35 ii exposed between the sides of the crown I6 and the longitudinal ends of that zone. > The crown iiivand the side plates ll and It are secured to the ?nger band proper ‘and one to the other in > any of the well known methods such as by solders . Fig. 6, a top view in perspective of a disassem 30 bled relation of the ring; A pair of side plates ill and it of the general con?guration as shown in Fig. 4 is formed so as to cover over those portions of the depressed zone , ing or fusing. ' .v The crown It may be formed for either an all metal or a stone mounting, the form, herein shown being that for a stone mounting. In this Fig. 8, a section on an enlarged scale through ' form, a stone It is shown as being mounted on the crown l6 and is further shown as having a the' completed ring at one side of the center. Like characters of reference indicate like parts metal ornament 20 mounted on the outer side of, 35 the stone it to have a rivet 2i extending through throughout the several views in‘ the drawing. The first step is to form a ?nger band blank the stone and down through the wall it. As in generally designated by the numeral ill to have dicated in Fig. 8, the reenforcing bar it may be a central portion formed with a recess or de 40 pression ii bounded on the two lateral‘ sides ‘by the shoulders i2 and it. In that ijorm of the band shown in Fig. 1, there is left a raised por tion extending laterally across the depressed area I in the form of a bar it. This bar may be omitted 45 in many cases as indicated in the form shown in Fig. 2. Theuse of the bar It is to reeniorce the under wall of the depressed area or zone or to ‘be utilized as a means for‘ securing stones or the like in place in the finished ring. The ?nger band it formed as above indicated 50 , is then further formed to bring it into the ?nger ring shape as indicated in Fig. 3 where the two ends of the blank have been united at some po sition such as at A. In curving the blank around to this ring shape, the under wall ii of the de employed in this type of mounting to advantage for reenforcing the .wall i5 and also provide for suitable thickness for retaining the headed end‘ of the rivet 2|. Further, as indicated in Fig. 8, it is 'to be noted that while the ring externally presents alarm and massive appearance, this appearance is not secured at the disadvantage of added weight. Instead the space below the crown piece it bounded by the plates I‘! and i8 and the under wall I5 is left hollow and is not ?lled in. Furthermore it is to, be noted that the entire ?nger band which would contact the ?nger oi‘ the wearer is made oi’ a single piece of metal without inlays or ?llers exposed or otherwise and consequently there is but one color of metal exposed both on the inner side of the band and on its edges. 2 2,119,229 While I have herein shown and described my crown seat, and said band having a bar extend ing centrally across such recess between said invention in the one particular form, it is ob vious that structural variations may beemployed raised central portions of the shoulder and up standing from the bottom of the recess, a mount without departing from the spirit of the inven tion and I, therefore, do not desire to be limited _ ing crown secured to and resting by its ends on to that precise form beyond the limitations as said central portions of the shoulder across and above said recess, side plates covering over and may be imposed by _the following claim. I claim: A ?nger ring comprising an endless one piece 10 band with a recess formed therein on its outer side and bounded by a surrounding shoulder having central portions thereof on opposite edges of the band increased in height to de?ne a enclosing the portions of said recess on either side of said crown, resting on said shoulder and in abutment with the sides of said crown, a set 10 ting on the mounting crown and means compris ing a rivet securing the setting to said bar.
