This invention is directed, to an improvement in an articleof jewelry, designed. for use in either a ring or bracelet and having capability of simple and convenient adjustment for varying its size The primary object ofgthe invention is the provision ofa, selected number. ,ofsections of the article Iwhich are constructedwitha view topermitting more or less permanent variation in the diametric sizeflofjthe complete article, with such size-adjusting sectionsseleotively capable of varying the diameter of ,the, completed article and maintaining such variation at will. Thus, the article. includesj sectionsyby whichthe size of the article maybe adjusted in diameter according to thedesired size, withthe adjustment selectively providedfor oneor more places and capableuof beingvaried in a simple expeditious manner w j. I 1 H The inventionfis illustrated in the accompanyingdrawing, lIl WlIliChI 4 Figure'l is a view "in'front elevation of the article, here shownasa finger v Figure 2 is an edgegview ,of the same. a I Figure 3 is an enlarged broken longitudinal secon 02 the rina, U H
Figure 4 is a perspective view illustrating the adjustinglsection'in preie rred form. V u Figure 5 isanelevationpf a modifiediorm of adjusting section. V l Figure 6' anelevationof a further modification of the adjusting section.,.
.Figure '7 is an elevation of a further modification of the adjusting section.
The article forming "the subject-matter of this invention, hereshown as a ring is madeup, of what may be termed ornamentallsectionsfll, adjusting sections 2, and locking sections 3. These sections may bev madein any desired external configuration and ,iornamentation, For example,
the sections I may be made in skeleton outline of ornamental configuration, whilethe adjusting sections 2 may be'formed or otherwise provided ,Lfor the reception of precious stones or other ornamentation. The invention is 'not concerned with r the character or degree ofornamentation and is mentioned merely to indicate the fact/that the adjusting sections are peculiarly and particularly formed to accommodate gem-receiving recesses or otherwise to'receive'precious stones.
A The ornamental sections l as shown terminate at'each end in a cross bar 4 which extends between the otherwise unconnected side bars 5. All of the sections l, 2 and 3 are, of course, curved in l n ud na pl e. in rde t t together they may form a ring-like body. The cross bar 4 is preferably, though "not necessarily, of triangular form in cross section, the apex 6 or narrowest portion of the cross bar being toward the convex side, i. e. the outer side, of the section 1.
The adjusting section 2 is made up of a solid bar-like member 1, the Width of which is substantially equal to the'length'of the free portion of the bar 4. ,The section 2 includes underlying integral sections 8 which are connected at their ends with the member 7 and which have free terminals 9 substantially meeting at the midlength of and beneath the member 1.
The sections 8 are, through the ends ID with which they are integrally connected with the member i, of spring-like tendency, permitting the sections 8 to be moved away from the member 1 under pressure and to be returned into substantial contact with said member when relieved of pressure. The upper surface of each spring strip 8, that is the surface next the inner surface of the member 1, is formed with notches l i which, of course, may be in appropriate or desired number, though normally'two such notches in each spring strip will be suificient.
Obviously, bymere displacement of either or both of the spring strips 8, the bar 4 may be seated in either notch i i and when in the relatively remote notches II, that is, the notches closest to the spring ends I 0 of the sections 8, the maximum extension adjustment is provided for, while with the bar 4 seated in any of the other notches in either or both of the spring strips 8, a less extended adjustment is provided for.
3 Where the bar 4 has been seated in one notch and it is desired to move it to an adjacent notch, such adjustment is assisted by the wedge-shaped formation of the bar 4, as the apex 6 of such bar may be readily forced between the spring strip 8 and the bar I to displace the spring strip to the extent .to permit the bar to be moved from the outermost notch to the innermost notch.
Inthe form shown in Figure 5, the adjusting section 2' is made up of a solid bar-like member l2, the width of which is substantially equal to the lengthiof the free portion of the bar 4. The section 2' includes longitudinally spaced notches 13 arranged at the respective ends and at the relatively inner side of the bar [2, and integral with the bar I2 through a neck M are spring strips l5 which extend in opposite directions from the neck and underlie and act as spring closures for the respective sets of notches l3. The application of the bar 4 to either of the notches I3 by displacement of the spring strip E5 or the transfer of the 5 to be moved to an adjacent channel for adjustment purposes.
5. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar and a plurality of spring-connected underlying sections formed with notches, one end of each of said sections being integrally connected with the main bar.
6. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar and a plurality of spring-connected underlying sections formed with notches, one end of each of said sections being integrally connected with the center of the main bar.
7. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar and a plurality of spring-connected underlying sections formed with notches, one end of each of said sections being integrally connected with the ends of the main bar.
8. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar, and a plurality of spring-connected underlying sections formed with notches, the adjacent free ends of the spring sections approximately underlying the center of the main bar.
9. An adjusting section for rings and the like, including a main bar, a plurality of spring bars integrally connected with the main bar, each of the spring bars being formed with notches to provide with the main bar a plurality of trans verse channels opening through the sides of the main bar.
10. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar and a plurality of spring bars integrally connected with the main bar, the under surface of the main bar being formed with notches to provide with the spring bars a plurality of channels transverse the main bar and opening through the sides thereof.
11. An adjusting section for rings, bracelets and the like, including a main bar, and a plurality of spring bars integrally connected to the main bar, the adjacent surfaces of the main bar and spring bars being formed with notches to together provide a series of channels transverse the main bar and opening through the sides thereof.
