General Information:

  • Approximate Dimensions: 9.5 inches long x 5.375 inches wide x 1.375 inches tall/deep
  • Weight: 9.7 oz
  • Era: This box is believed to be pre-Mid Century, dating to the 1940s.
  • Manufacturer: Unknown
  • Markings: No formal maker’s marks, though the application type, numerical typeface and numerical order indicate the box’s French origin, as the numbers are French ring sizes
  • Buyer Notes: This box is a one of a kind, superbly rare find, making it very much desired by collectors. While there are multi ring cases on the market, no exact comparables to this piece were noted to be on the open market at the time of procurement, research and listing. Three greatly valuable characteristics make this box particularly unique: the extraordinarily enormous number of slots (85), the wide range of slot sizes to accommodate an array of ring sizes and styles, and the two sizing strips that mark the ring slot gradient by their French ring size. For scale and reference, the smallest ring slots at the upper left column (labeled “49/50”) will hold up to a US ring size 4.75-5, while the  largest ring slots at the lower right column (labeled “71/72”) will hold up to a US ring size 12-12.5. While the exterior of the box shows wear from time, use and age, the box is fully functional, and retains its integrity.

Exterior:

  • Exterior Materials: Pebbled leatherette-wrapped wood hard case
  • Exterior Colors: Black
  • Exterior Construction & Conditions: Some light wear commensurate with age and use

Interior:

  • Interior Lid Materials: Synthetic silk satin padded lining
  • Interior Lid Color: Quinacridone with subtle iridescence   
  • Interior Lid Conditions: Some extremely faint impressions, though no pilling, frays or tears 
  • Interior Hinge Covering Material: Corresponding synthetic quinacridone silk satin, possibly starched
  • Interior Hinge Covering Conditions: Some very slight pilling along crease, though no frays or tears
  • Interior Tray Materials: Vibrant crimson velvet 
  • Inner Ring Slot Materials: Fully lined box-slots contiguously wrapped
  • Ring Slot Count: Eighty-Five (85)
  • Ring Slot Average Dimensions: Slots measure approximately 16 to 27.5 mm across, 2 to 5.75 mm wide, and about 14.4 mm deep, offering ideal storage for both men’s and women’s rings, including storage of heftier rings in height and width. These style slots are compartmentalized and plush (lined) in such a way that this box could also be used to store and organize jewelry findings, charms and other such smaller bits and bobs.

Closure:

  • Hardware Materiality: Base metal buckles and hinges 
  • Closure System: Double trunk buckles on exterior; buckle and unbuckle to open and close, clicks shut and lies flat when open
  • Closure Conditions: Opens and closes with buckle ‘clicks’ with no resistance; some commensurate wear and oxidation to base metal material (pictured)

All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
