STEAMPUNK Ring Clockwork Watch 16 Ruby Jewel Movement Brass Adjustable Ring by Compass Rose Design High quality steampunk ring - great for ladies and gents - with vintage mechanical watch movement with exposed jewels and gears set on brass filigree ring. This ring holds a tiny piece of history and story that has been retrieved from a watchmakers junk drawer and given new life. Great for men or women. ABOUT THE DESIGN: The Victorian era was a bridge between old traditions and new technologies. At the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert received the first mechanical keyless wind watches, making pocket watches and watch fobs popular for both men and women until the mid 20th century. While pocket watches had been worn for more than a century, wrist watches were introduced around 1900, called "wristlets" were introduced, in part because of the development of a more affordable jewel bearings production process, which made smaller, more accurate watches possible. Assumed to be a passing fad, wrist watches caught on and were most popular in the 1920s and 1930s, which is why most of the watches I work with are Art Deco from this period. An emblem of a past era of craftsmanship, these mechanical watches have real or synthetic jewel bearings, originally made with ruby, garnet, diamond, and sapphire. Many watches have the name of the watch maker, intricate tooling or design work, seen only when the watch was repaired, cleaned, and maintained. Wear history. MEASUREMENTS & MATERIALS: * This is a nickel-free brass sturdy adjustable ring that fits both men and women from about a size 6 to above an 10. The ends are rounded, so this is a comfortable ring. * This is a SOLDERED item for lasting quality. * This watch movement measures approximately 3/4" tall by 5/8" or 19mm x 16mm * All items come in a gift box.
