I found a ring ring last month that puzzled me. It was a.) certainly from the 1930s b.) marked Made in Czechoslovakia and c.) featured a photo of a young Shirley Temple behind the glass. Side note: Ms. Temple served as the U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia in her later years (1989-1992).
I assume that these rings were intended for children, as mine is barely as size 3 and the auction lot were all size 5. I think it would be really cool if someone made rings like this today! Has anyone seen any modern portrait rings? Movie stars or otherwise? Can someone make these for Mad Men characters please? If you wore a portrait ring of a movie star, who would it be?
