Description


  The present invention relates to the field of jewelry, more particularly to a jewelery article having a plurality of spherical or quasi-spherical elements (hereinafter "spherical element"), each spherical element being assembled to at least one other element adjacent spherical via a rod.

  

[0002] Several jewelery articles comprising a plurality of spherical elements, such as beads, assembled to one another by different means are already part of the state of the art.

  

Publication No. JP 7,303,507 discloses a collar comprising a plurality of beads, some of which are provided with two through holes, the latter passing approximately through the center of the bead. The beads are arranged relative to each other via a more or less rigid element in the form of a ring.

  

Publication No. WO 2005 055 756, for its part, discloses in particular a jewelery article comprising an assembly system consisting in associating several spherical elements juxtaposed to one another and held by means of rods passing through bores. . Each rod has a spiral spring arranged to allow juxtaposed spherical elements to move away from each other under the action of a force.

  

One of the disadvantages of assembly methods disclosed in these documents is that the positioning of the spherical elements relative to each other is limited in space. As a result, the shapes that can be obtained are relatively small.

  

The object of the present invention is to provide a jewelery article consisting of several essentially spherical elements, the positioning in the space of said elements relative to each other being fully controlled in order to obtain the desired shape.

  

According to the invention, this object is achieved through a jewelery article according to claim 1, comprising a plurality of spherical or quasi-spherical elements (hereinafter "spherical element"). Each spherical element has at least one bore and is integrally arranged with at least one adjacent spherical element. The assembly of two adjacent spherical elements is achieved by means of a rod, the latter being inserted on either side into the corresponding bore of each spherical element. Several spherical elements each comprise at least two bores, the axis of each bore being oriented radially with respect to the center of the spherical element.

   The spatial positioning of the adjacent spherical elements on either side of a common spherical element is obtained by the angular orientation in the space of the bores relative to one another. The assembly of each spherical element adjacent to the common spherical element is achieved by driving, gluing or screwing each rod on either side into the corresponding bores. Each adjacent spherical element may constitute a spherical element common to one or more other adjacent spherical elements. The assembly of all the spherical elements makes it possible to obtain a jewelery article of a desired shape.

  

The characteristics of the invention will appear more clearly on reading the description of several embodiments of the assembly concept given solely by way of example, in no way limiting, with reference to the schematic figures, in which:
<tb> fig. 1 <sep> represents a front view of a jewelery item comprising several spherical elements,


  <tb> fig. 2 <sep> represents a sectional view along the line A-A taken in FIG. 1


  <tb> fig. 3 <sep> represents a perspective view of a main spherical element around which are arranged, by means of rods, several spherical elements of smaller diameters,


  <tb> fig. 4 <sep> is a perspective view of FIG. 3 from a different angle,


  <tb> fig. <Sep> represents a sectional view along the line A-A taken in FIG. 4.

  

According to one of the embodiments of the invention illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the jewelery article comprises a plurality of spherical elements (1) of variable dimensions. These spherical elements (1) are held integral with each other by means of rods (3), each rod (3) being driven from one side to the other in the corresponding bore (2) of each element (1). .

  

Each bore (2) is formed so that its axis is oriented radially towards the center of the spherical element (1). The spatial positioning of the spherical elements (1) relative to each other is thus determined by the angular orientation in the space of the bores (2) relative to each other of each spherical element (1). In this embodiment, the orientation of the bores (2) has been determined in order to position all the spherical elements (1) on a single plane.

  

The length of the rod (3) and the depth of the bores (2) are determined in order to join two spherical elements (1) or to position them at a distance from one another. In the present embodiment, the depth of the bores (2) is about half of the radius of the spherical element (1), the length of each rod (3) having been determined in order to have a certain spacing between each element (1).

  

Figs. 3, 4 and 5, illustrates another example of the assembly concept featuring a main spherical element (1) which comprises a plurality of bore (2) whose respective axis is oriented radially relative to the center of this main element (1). ). The peripheral spherical elements (4), of smaller diameter, may have a through bore (2) passing through their center. One end of the rod (3) can thus be housed in one or more other spherical elements (not shown) arranged on a radial axis to the main spherical element (1) but separated by at least one peripheral spherical element (4).

  

It is clear from reading the description and from the figures relating thereto that the invention is not limited to the embodiments described above as examples but embraces, on the contrary , all the alternative embodiments, the invention residing essentially on the angular orientation of each bore one or the one relative to the others made in each spherical element, in order to obtain, after assembly of all the spherical elements, the resulting jewelry item.

  

Thus, each spherical element may comprise from one to a plurality of bores, so that one or a multitude of spherical elements can be contiguous to a single common spherical element.

  

Moreover, the so-called spherical element may have an imperfect so-called quasi-spherical shape. This is the case when pearls act as spherical elements, pearls almost never having a perfect spherical shape. It is also understood by quasi-spherical element a spherical element comprising a multitude of facets.

  

The spherical element may just as well be a semi-precious stone. Thus, the jewelery article may, for example, be composed of semi-precious stones alternating with pearls.

  

In another embodiment, each bore may be threaded and each threaded rod on both sides so that the assembly of two adjacent beads can be made by screwing. Bonding the rod within the bores may be another means of assembling the spherical elements.

  

Finally, it can be envisaged that the rod, intended to unite two adjacent spherical elements, is flexible in order to give the jewelry item a certain elasticity.
