1924 West Point Academy Class Ring, Bailey Banks & Biddle. 14k Yellow Gold, Weighs over 9 grams & is Size 6 1/2 Condition is Used. Considered to be the nation’s oldest jewelry company, BB&B started life in 1832, pre-dating more famous Art Deco jewelry designers such as Tiffany and Cartier by several years. By the late 1860’s, this firm was considered to be the finest jewelry maker in America and the company is indelibly linked with the American military, producing many medals, swords for prominent Union commanders during the civil war and even the proposed currency for the envisaged Confederacy-led nation during the same period. Where Tiffany & Co. The link to the White House was settled forever when BB&B were asked to do a design for the Great Seal of the United States, a design which is still in use today. The Bailey, Banks and Biddle name is still renowned among famous Art Deco jewelry designers. Their status within the ranks of the military for their designs on medals is unparalleled. Sadly, as time has progressed, the original BB&B company eventually dissolved. Having changed hands several times in the early 21st century, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2009. Interestingly, both BB&B and Tiffany lay claim to being the ones who introduced the 925 Sterling Silver to the US, bringing silver quality in line with the British standard that was used in the rest of the world. Officially, the award goes to Tiffany’s, but BB&B make a strong case for the honor.
