Oh I just adore this ring! WHAT FUN!
It began with an authentic antique cork lined “RITZ” bottle cap! Only the really old ones are cork lined and this one has so much personality! I love the tiny top hat on the top!
It is un-crimped and un-used so it is perfectly flat with some FABULOUS “age appropriate beauty marks”.
Have you ever wondered why the soda manufacturers used such color and detail for their bottle caps?
Because glass bottles of pop used to be sold in machines where the cap was the only thing visible AND the only thing that distinguished it from the next bottle! A great bit of marketing!
The silver bezel ring is high quality and adjustable. It measures a little over 1″ in diameter.
Each and every piece in my jewelry line has been meticulously designed and created in such a way as to last for years to come.
Fun-to-wear vintage ring! Also, thank you for the interesting history on bottle cap design. I didn’t know that caps had to be a tiny “billboard” to entice people to choose the product.
This ring is a cool way to preserve and appreciate vintage advertising art.
And “orange pineapple soda” sounds quite interesting on a hot day, doesn’t it?
