Description

Patented Dec. 4, 1923.
-UNETEDI STATES JOSEF PEJCHAE, or 'BRooxLYN, New YORK.
GEM SETTING.
Application filed February 9,1921. Serial No. 443,508.
Be it known that I, JosEF PEJGHAR, a citizen of the United States, and resident of the borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings, city and State of New York, have invented certain newand useful Improvementsin Gem Settings, of whichthe following is a specification.
This invention relates to articles of j ewelry, and particularly to an article which combinesasetting for agem or stonewith means for holding the article in position, andthe object of the invention is to provide an article of this character which will be exceedingly simple and inexpensive to manufacture, yet strong and durable in construction.
Several embodiments of my invention have been shown in the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a plan view showing a blank from which one form of my invention is made; Fig. 2 is a sideelevation of the article made from the blank shown in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a side elevation of said article, looking in a direction at 45? to Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a bottom view of a number of articles such as shown in Figs. 2 and 8, connected to form a mesh fabric; Figs. 5, 6, and 7 are views corresponding to Figs. 1, 2, and 4 respectively, and illustrating another form of my invention; Fig. 8 is a central vertical section through the article shown in Fig. 6; Fig. 9 is a plan view of a blank for still another form of my in-' vention, intended for use as a finger ring with a stone setting; and Fig. 10 shows this finger ring in side elevation.
According to the form of my invention shown in Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive, a blank of the form illustrated by Fig. 1 is produced from sheet-metal by stamping or in any other suitable manner. This blank comprises a central disk-like or plate-like body portion A and a plurality (preferably an even number) of arms or projections B and D extending outwardly from the outer edge of said body portion, said arms or projections being preferably of equal length. Alternate projections, B, are bent to one side of the body portion to form fingers B which together constitute a setting for a gem or stone C, see Figs. 2 and 3, while the intermediate projections, D, are bent to the op posite side of the body portion to form holding members D bent inwardly until they come in contact with each other at a meeting point located opposite the center of To all whom it may concern-.1
the'body portion.- At this point, the ends; of. I the holding members D may be connected by soldering or otherwise, theseends being for instance pointed in Vfashion to obtain a good'fit (see Fig. 4). It will be seen that 7 theholding members form loops, and this enables me to employ the articles shown in Figs. 2 and 3 as units in the building up of composite articles, such as a mesh fabric .ofthe character indicated in Fig. 4. Here each of the; four holding members D (eX-..
ce-pt at the edge of the fabric) is connected 'with a link E of elongated or'other, shape,
such links forming a connection between adjacent units, and axfabric is thus obtained in which, the unit carrying gems or stones form rows in two directions perpendicular to each other. Other arrangements might be employed, it being understood that Fig. 4 illustrates only an example of the numerous possibilities afforded by my invention.
The form of my invention illustrated by Figs. 5, 6 and 8 dilfers from the one shown in Figs. 1. 2, and 3, first, by having only three fingers B and only three holding members D, instead of four; the arrangement of fingers relatively to holding members and to the body portion A is however the same as in the form of my invention described above. Second, the body portion is not solid, but provided with a central aperture A, which presents the advantage of reducing the amount of metal employed, and this is important when the article is made of precious metal; another advantage is that the stone C may be allowed toproject into said opening, see Fig. 8, and this reduces the length of the setting fingers B reqnired,as compared with the length necessary when. the inner end of the stone C is above the body portion A, as in Figs. 2 and 3. The'article thus becomes more compact, and a further saving of valuable material is effected by reducing the length of the fingers B.
When there are three holding members D, at 120 apart, as shown, the articles or units cannot be arranged in rows perpendicular to each other, as in Fig. 4, but may bearranged in hexagon fashion, as in Fig. 7 which shows av portion of a mesh fabric comprisin such units, and other arrangements and combinations may be adopted, either of uni-ts of the same kind, or using units of different kinds. 1 A third form of my invention is shown in 7 Figs. 9 and10, 'Here the blank has a body portion A and four fingers B Of'SlIbstantially the same arrangement as in Figs.
1, 2, and 3, to hold the-stone C, The holding members D, of which there are only two, at diametrically, opposite points, "are much longerthan the said fingers B", and each of them is bent'i'nto approximately semi-circular shape until their free ends meet at a point opposite-the center of the body portion A; these meeting ends are then soldered together, thus forming the encircling bandot a finger ring, that is,
the band which holds the'ring on the'finger. Various other articles might be made within the scope of my invention as defined v in the appended claims.
portion and extending from its outer edge on one side or'face of said body portion, and
holding members likewise integral with said body portion and extending from points-of its outer edge between the attached ends of said fingers, on the opposite face of said-body portion, said members being bent to a loop formation toward a point located opposite the center of the body portion, andlinks for connecting the loop-formation of v adjacent units.
2. A device of the character described, 7
comprising a plate-like body portion, a pl-u ralit-y o1": stone-holding fingers integral with said "body portion and extendingtherefrom on one side or face of said body portion, and holding members likewise integral with said body portion and extending from points of its outer edge between the 'attached ends of said fingers, on the opposite face of said body portion, said-"members being 'bent toward each other and having free en dspointed in V-fashion and fitted to each otherwit-h the oblique faces of" such V-shaped ends in close contact.
In testimony whereof 'Ihave signed this specification.
