Can I get some information on this sterling ring? A year they were made?
Marked “sterling kiddiegem” on the inside.
My guess is 50s-60s.
I heard they had a lifetime warranty lol.
This is way more info than I had lol, thank youDifficult to date these I'm afraid.
The Uncas Manufacturing Company (of Providence, Rhode Island) filed for the Kiddiegem trademark on 31 December 1934 and it was granted on 23 April 1935. Thereafter the mark was renewed every 20 years until it expired without further renewal on 29th January 1996.
That company has quite the evolution. I'm not quite sure the company of today is quite as "pure" as the earlier one.That dating information is not correct.
The company was first registered as "Sorrento" in 1911 but changed name to "Uncas Manufacturing Co" in the early 1920s. They celebrated their 100th anniversary in June 2011 and they're still in business today as "Uncas International":

Their use of the 'Kiddiegem' trademark within the Uncas business dates from 1935-1996 as I said, but they didn't bother with a third renewal and the trademark then lapsed.
