Coca-Cola service and safety award jewelry is highly collectible. I ran across this cool 30 yr. ring recently and was able to acquire at a price equivalent to the gold scrap value, so a good investment. Now, I'm not much of a jewelry guy (wearing the wedding ring is required!:), but I may have to slip this on once in awhile when I put on dress duds. The ring qualifies as one of my smalls, which I now have on display in the spare bedroom. I remembered I had a small curio shelf on which my mom displayed her mom's glass boot collection, so I've converted it for my use. It will do until I find the right table.

    That's Dad Q. He thinks he's still that age! :) I'm the guy in the blue striped polyester shirt (look at all that hair, sheesh...). Thanks Ray, hope it's going good.

    You keep finding the most interesting things Dave!Those look like diamonds ?

    Hi Bernie, thanks. 10K weighing 10g. I took it to a jeweler and he offered me exactly what I paid for it. So I had him re-size it for me. Those might be considered diamond "chips", talk about tiny! What I don't know, is age of the ring. I did a little research, and this particular design is by L.G. Balfour Co., Attleboro, Mass., which started making bling for The Coca-Cola Company in the mid 1950's. It's well made, nice detail on the gold and enamel. Thanks again for commenting Bernie, always great to hear from you.

    Your display cabinet looks great Dave! I have been too busy to collect here lately, I do have a few things in my sights though. The service ring is a great find and nice addition to your collection.
