This Pinball Ring is hand-crafted after a rare and unusual artifact, our exquisite Pinball Ring is a treasure in its own right. Each of the sterling silver ring's components is formed from .925 sterling silver, and a patina has been applied to replicate the finish of the original pinball ring in Colonial Williamsburg's museum collections. The true highlight of our silver beaded ring is the monogram plate, true in shape to its 200-year-old cousin. This oval disc allows the ring to be hand-engraved with the recipient's initials, just like the museum original! Over a fifth ounce of precious silver makes this personalized ring a fine gift as a winning combination of history and style. Sizes 6 to 9∙ 1/4"w
This sterling silver jewelry is a design replica of an antique pinball ring in the Colonial Williamsburg museum collections. The artifact dates to the late 1700s from the Mid-Atlantic States.

Pinball rings were used to carry a lady's sewing needles. The ring held a round ball, made sometimes of needlepoint, velvet, cotton, silk, or whatever the user had around; the inside of the ball was stuffed with wool, as lanolin keeps metal from rusting and helped make the needle go through fabrics smoother. Sometimes broken walnut shells would be added to the ball to help to keep needles sharpened.

The ball, inserted into the pinball ring, was attached to the lady's chatelaine by either chain or ribbon. She would also have scissors hanging from her chatelaine, maybe a magnifying glass, keys, ivory notebook, etc.
Clean with a silver polishing cloth.
