Uncas Vintage Jewelry
Uncas began to manufacture in the 1920s and was still in business through the 60s. Their jewelry approximated precious jewelry in appearance and has held up quite well over the years. The Uncas mark is a U with arrows on either side.

This information was also acquired from the internet by Marly Harris for us: The Uncas Ring Co. was located in Providence, Rhode Island. There, the company not only produced premium rings, but also jewelry including bracelets, earrings, charms, and the like. Many of their rings, however, were produced with the same base - which made them different from many other ring companies. This trademark base was used from the late 1920s up to the 1950s. The difference then, in the rings (besides the actual image on the ring, of course), was that some were adjustable and some non-adjustable.

The ring, very tiny, looks like oxidized brass that still has a bit of the gold plating on the surface of the decorative setting and bears the mark of Uncas Manufacturing Company from Providence, R.I. (1919-). There is a center stone missing, but this is a sweet example of early children's jewelry.  The antique buttons are not Uncas.
