Application November 8, 1944, Serial No. 562,438 1 4 Claims. (Cl. 63-46) This invention relates to ?nger rings; more particularly to solitaires, and still more particu larly to a combination solitaire ring and wed ding band. It is an object of my invention to provide a 2 Figure 6 is a fragmentary section taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 1; Figure 7 is a longitudinal sectional view of another embodiment of my invention; Figure 8 is a perspective view of a setting in ?nger ring having a solitaire setting for gems, accordance with another embodiment of my in such as diamonds or the like, Which may have vention; assembled therewith a wedding band displaying Figure 9 is a perspective view of a combined or outlining portion which may lie contiguous solitaire setting and reinforcing wedding band with the ring for ‘the solitaire whereby a rein 10 in accordance with still another embodiment of forcement of one to the other may be secured my invention. and to compactly arrange these ring sections Making reference to the drawing, I show a with each other. ?nger ring in which is provided with a setting Still more particularly, it is an object of my II, for mounting a gem l2, such as a solitaire invention to provide a ?nger ring having a soli diamond or the like. The ring portion is formed taire setting with which a wedding band segment on its interior with an annular groove l3. Co may be contiguously positioned and permanently operating with the ring portion it I provide a connected to secure mutual reinforcement of their structure as well as compact positioning on the wearer’s ?nger. Still more particularly it is an object of my invention to provide a ?nger ring having a solitaire setting, and having combined therewith a wedding ‘band segment and inter engaging means not only providing mutual re inforcement but still more particularly serving to permit movement of the wedding band seg ment whereby, in one position, it may be con tiguously exposed adjacent the setting and in another position, diametrically opposed to the setting, whereby when worn on the ?nger, only the solitaire portion is visible. Still more particularly, it is an object of my invention to provide a combined ?nger ring hav ing a setting for a solitaire and wedding band, whereby mutual reinforcement may be secured from these elements, and also economy in labor of production and materials may be effected to a material extent. To attain these objects and such further ob jects as may appear herein or be hereinafter pointed out, I make reference to the accompany ing drawing, forming a part hereof, in which: Figure 1 is a side elevation of my invention showing a combined ?nger ring having a solitaire setting and wedding band segment, with the wed ding band portion in one position; Figure 2 corresponds to Figure 1, with the wed ding band portion in another position; Figure 3 is an end elevation of one embodiment of my construction, as shown in Figure 2; Figure 4 is a section taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 1; Figure 5 is a detail of the wedding band seg ment separated from its assembly; wedding band outlining portion M, preferably in the form of a segment of a circlet, whose branches !5 and i6 extend beyond the center. Preferably, the branches l5 and it are obliquely directed, and have formed adjacent their ends inwardly directed ?anges I‘! and E8, formed with beaded portions l9, of a contour corresponding to the groove I3 and spaced inwardly from the face portion 20. With the construction thus far described, the flanges H’ and IB may be sprung into the groove is of the ring iii, thus bringing the annulus 2| and the annulus 22 substantially in alignment. The ?nger of the wearer may be passed through the annuli 2| and 22. When so worn, the segment 14 may be rotated, to be diametrically opposed to the setting II, as shown in Figures 1 and 4, or rotated to lie contiguously to the setting H, as shown in Figures 2 and 3. In either position, mutual reinforcement of these members is se cured, as well as providing a very compact, con tiguous arrangement of these segments. In another embodiment of my invention, as more speci?cally illustrated in Figure ‘7, I‘ provide the ring lOa with an annular groove I3a, of gen erally V-shaped contour. With a ring thus provided, I associate there with a Wedding band outlining portion I do, which includes a ?ange 15a, having a rim portion Ilia arranged to snap into the groove 13a holding the wedding band section I 4a contiguously. This serves to align the annulus 2m with the an nulus 22a of the respective ring portions Ma and Ilia. ' As in the previously described embodiments, compactness of positioning of these two ring members is secured with mutual reinforcement of the ring sections. 2,408,982 3 In still another embodiment of my invention illustrated in Figures 8 and 9, I provide a ring sec tion lllb in which the setting is integrally formed on each of the branches 24 and 25 to provide set ting prongs 26 and 21 spaced from each other. By this procedure an inexpensive solitaire setting may be formed in which the prongs 26-46 may 4 trated its use, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: 1. A ?nger ring having a solitaire setting for a gem and having, in combination, a wedding band segment adjacent thereto associating the wedding band segment and setting contiguously and reinforcing each other, said band and ring having interengaging overlapping portions rein forcing each other, the interengaging overlap with the size of the gem. With such a ring and setting, I then provide a wedding band segment 10 ping portions comprising an annular groove on ‘be spaced from the prongs 21—-2‘| in accordance Mb, brazing or soldering, or otherwise ai?xing the same, as by pin engagement, contiguously to the side wall of the ring lOb so that a portion of its circlet 28 overlaps the gap 29 between the branches 24 and 25. Here again, I secure a con tiguous arrangement of the wedding band portion Mb with the ring portion 101) with mutual rein, forcement of these ring sections. It will thus be observed that by the construc tion which I have described, a combined ?nger ring and setting for a solitaire is provided in which close contiguous positioning of a- wedding band segment or outlining portion and the setting for the solitaire maybe secured to provide a com pact arrangement with mutual reinforcement of one ringsection with another, permitting sub one ring portion and a ?ange on the other ring portion whereby the ring and band may be ro tated in relation to each other. 2. A?nger ring having a solitaire setting for a gem and having, in combination, a wedding band segment adjacent thereto associating the wedding 'band segment and setting contiguously and reinforcing each other by overlapping por tions comprising an annular groove on said ring and a ?ange on said segment extending into the groove of said ring, whereby said ringand said band may be rotated -_in relation to eachother contiguously, whereby‘ in one position of ‘said band only the setting is visible when‘ Worn von the ?nger and when positioned in a diametrically opposed position theyband and setting are con tiguously visible on the ?nger. 3. A ?nger ring having ‘a solitaire settingfor a gem,- having in‘ combination, a wedding band out— stantial economies in the materials employed and the weight of the stock employed. coordinately, I have also provided a combina tion of a ?nger ringhaving a solitaire setting in 30 lining portion extending segmentally about ‘the ring and including interengaging reinforcing which a wedding band segment not only rein portions comprising a groove on the, ring anda forces the ring portion carrying the solitaire set ?ange on the band portion, said groove and ?ange ting, but one in which the wedding band segment connection providing a sliding connection be may be positioned so that the Wedding band por tween the ring and groove whereby, in one posi tion is contiguous to the setting when worn on tion of said band only, the setting is visible on the ?nger of the wearer, thereby making visible the ?nger, and when positioned in a diametrical both the wedding band segment and setting, or ly opposed position, the band and setting are con by a rotation to a diametrically opposed position, tiguously visible on the ?nger. only the setting is visible on the ?nger. In this 4. A ?nger ring having a solitaire settingfor way the assembly of the ?nger ring having a 40 a gem, having in combination, awedding band. solitaire setting and wedding band segment, may be sold at one time with a wide tolerance in size of the ?nger ring carrying the setting with com pensation for the size of the ?nger of the wearer as furnished by the wedding band segment. In general, therefore, it will be observed that I have» provided in the article of jewelry de scribed, substantial economies in labor, material, and cost of production. Having thus described myinvention, and illus outlining portion extending segmentally , about , the ring, and interengaging portions between said band-- and ring for contiguously mounting said , band portion and ring in one of two positions, one , position providing a band portion diametrically opposed to the setting, and the other contiguous: 1y with said setting, the band portion reinforc ing the ring in either of the positions aforesaid.
