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

art by the structure shown in the accompanying

added parts to be hereinafter explained;

?gure and showing the general relationship of
the ?rst named ring and a ring to be joined to it;

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.
