    Estate sale treasures - question re watch chains

    Got to an estate sale this morning and they had a ton of odds and ends jewelry. Lot of nice little pieces including super cool 18k fountain pen.

    Picked up these bits of watch chain because they are gold. I donít understand the purpose of the ring on the end of the short chain. Itís not a wedding band (has flat, sharp edges).

    I also donít know what the little coat hanger shaped thing is or the twisted bar thing. All marked and tested as 14k except the little coat hanger which is a 10k clasp and 14k hanger.

    I've seen similar coat hanger things that held a ribbon with a suspended medal of some sort (mostly Masonic). I've also seen rings with flat sharp edges that I have to assume were wedding bands due to engraved inscriptions.

    Thank you - I looked at the ribbon holders and I think thatís spot on. A ring makes the most sense for the other thing

    The ring could be designed to anchor to a button or clasp inside the vest pocket to protect from its loss. Nice little score!
