(Cl. 63-15) This invention relates to twin ?nger rings of in engaging position in full lines, and dotted in the type available for sale one at a time, such the position it occupies in Fig. I; and “ as an engagement ring with, a wedding ring, Fig. V is a fragmentary view alternate to that that are sold separately but have an actual joinder shown in Fig. IV. useful with some types of bezel. 5 when worn together on the ?nger. In the drawing, i represents the circlet por The idea of such rings is not novel at this tion of the jeweled ring shown in the first two time hence I do not attempt to claim such a ?gures and 2 represents the bezel, usually oma structure broadly, but only a new type of such mentally chased or it may be plain as shown. ring, wherein the ?rst purchased of the pair of , ii is a pivoted link member which folds into 10 rings contains the means for uniting the second a recess Ila in the bezel 2, when a companion ring to it, but said joining means is folded up ring such as that shown in Fig. III is not worn within the outline of said ?rst ring in such a with it. In Fig. I the location of the link mem-, manner that its presence is practically incapable of detection. bar in folded position is clearly delineated, but in practice the fit between the link member it The objects therefore are a ring construction of the character indicated for twin rings wherein and the recess 1to will be ?nely made, so that it is hardly distinguishable when the ring is worn the master ring, or the one that carries the join~ ing means for a second ring, has no projecting in this manner; and particularly there is no part but a perfectly uniform exterior surface at when worn alone, since projecting parts have proved objectionable during the time the single ring is worn. With former twin ring constructions the joinder of the ring. The desirable concealment of the link member is enhanced if the pivoted link mem ber and the bezel are made with the same pat tern of chasing or engraving so that the lines has been more or less rigid, so that the effect of 25 wearing such twin rings was to give an effect of stiffness, such as would result from wearing an excessively broad band ring. An object there» fore, of the present invention is a joinder for twin rings that is rigid so far as lineal separation 3b is concerned and impossible to unhool: without both rings being taken off the ?nger, yet which is substantially as ?exible to wear as two sepa rate rings. I accomplish the objects stated and others that 35 will be apparent to those skilled in the jewelry art by the structure shown in the accompanying drawing, described in the speci?cation subjoined, and claimed in the claims following the speci? cation. 40 , In the drawing,— Fig. I is a side elevation of a je'weled ring in cluding the usual jewel setting or bezel, with added parts to be hereinafter explained; Fig. II is a view of the structure shown in Fig. 45 I at right angles to the position in the last named ?gure and showing the general relationship of the ?rst named ring and a ring to be joined to it; Fig. III is a view at right angles to Fig. II, 50 showing the adjacent or added ring of that fig ure. but omitting the jeweled ring of Figs. I and II; projection beyond the general outline of the rest "thereof will register. ' A pin pivot 5 serves-to maintain the link mem her it in proper relationship to the bezel 2 and will be an easy fit in the pivot hole 6 in the link member it, though the shank of 4 will be a neat lit in the outside terminus of the recess 4a. A companion ring, ordinarily made as a plain “wedding ring” as shown in Fig. III, will be provided with a socket ‘I, and an internal groove 8 in that portion of its circlet portion 9, that will be worn adjoining the bezel 2 when the two rings are worn together. , The socket T will accommodate the rounded hook portion 4b of the link member 4 and the groove 8 will accommodate the shank portion of the link member 4, so that there will be no projection thereof within the circlet portion of the companion ring, forming a pivotal connec tion between the companion ring, circlet 9, and the link member 4, at the outer end of the latter. There will be su?icient play or provision for movement of the several engaging parts to elimi nate any sensation of stiffness, heretofore men 4:5 tioned, so that the two rings are actually joined together but may be Worn with freedom equal to two separate rings. By the structure as illustrated and described, I have eliminated the two features always here tofore present in twin ring structures which have Fig. IV‘ is an enlarged view, broken away from i proved objectionable, a projecting part on a ring Fig. II detailing the link member, which is the worn alone which disclosedits character as far ‘ 55 important feature of the present invention, out, as it could be seen, and the inevitable rigidity 2 2,197,766 where two rings are joined without any pro vision for relative planar motion. What I claim as new and desire to secure by master ring, a companion ring and a link mem Letters Patent, is, one of said rings and pivotally held in contact i. A twin ring ?nger structure comprising a master ring, a link .member pivotally Joined to said master ring, a companion ring that is pro vided with an inner recess, and the said link member being provided with a projecting means 10 to pivotally engage said recess when held in con tact therewith by a wearer's ?nger. 3. A twin ?nger ring structure comprising a ber therebetween that is pivotally attached to with a recess in the other ring by a wearer's ?nger, the said link member being characterized by being movable to a point within and conform ing to the outline surface of the ring to which it is pivotallyattached. 4. In a twin ?nger ring structure comprising 10 two rings adapted to be worn singly or joined to 2. A master ring of the character described having a bezel portionthereof, a recess formed. gether, a Joining member that is pivotaiiy at tached to one ring and ioidable to a point within in said bezel portion and a link member pivoted the outline surface thereof when not in use, said 15 in said recess. the said link member being char acterized by being movable into the mouth of the recess when not in use, to substantially main tain an unbroken uniformity of outline oi’ said master ring. joining member being adapted to be held in 15 pivotal abutting relationship to a socket in an other ring, by a wearer's ?nger upon which both rings are worn.
