Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 26, 1918.
Application filed July 17, 1917. Serial No. 180,962.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, MIECZYSLAW ZIELIN- SKI, a citizen of Russia, resident of New York, county of New York, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in F inger-Rings, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in finger rings and has as its special object the provision of a rin which may be worn so as to act under certain conditions as a reminder of something to be done, which is likely to become forgotten.
A further object is to provide a ring of general harmonious design and neat appear ance, which, by reason of its peculiarities may be used for a practical purpose.
These and other like objects are attained by the novel construction and combination of parts hereafter described and shown in the accompanying drawings, forming a ma terial part of this disclosure, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a ring made in accordance with the invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged partial side elevational and vertical sectional view of the same.
Fig. 3 is a side view of the ring.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view showing a modified form of construction.
Fig. 5 is a similar view of the same showing the parts in another position, and
Fig. 6 is a partial sectional and side elevational view showing a modified form of ring construction.
It is a well-known fact that people are apt to forget matters of minor importance by reason of weightier subjects, and it is not uncommon to find persons who are pleased to take the advantage of expedients of a tem porary nature by means of which attention is called to duties to be performed, the article used, acting as a reminder.
In the present invention, a ring formed with any desired gem 11, the being held in a setting 12 as is common.
In the simpler forms shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, one or more V shaped slits 14 are formed in the side of the ring hand, through the material, so as to force out short spurs same Copies 01' this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the 15, the same serving to attract the attention of the wearer by coming in contact with the fingers adjacent to that upon which the ring is worn, so that the ring, when thus placed for a definite purpose, indicates the omission of something to be done, after its attainment, the ring may be turned around are caused to extend outwardly, as best shown in Fig. 5, acting in fore described.
In Fig. 6 the ring body 10 has an internal recess 25 extending from a point below the setting 12 about one quarter way around, terminating in an opening '26, and containing a spring wire 27, formed with a hump 28, the adjacent end 29 abutting against the end of the recess while the opposite free end 30 may be protruded through the opening 26 when the screw 32 is forced downward into the setting 12, the action temporarily straightening the hump or bend 28- in an obvious manner.
Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
In a finger ring, the combination with a band adapted to encircle a finger, said band having an internal arcuate recess opening outwardly on the side thereof, a raised projection on said band substantially ninety degrees from the mentioned opening having a threaded opening, a resilient wire in the mentioned recess, a hump formed with said wire, said hump normally extending into the opening formed in said projection and a threaded plug fitted to the mentioned opening adapted to abut against said pump.
In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature.
