  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • In the following detailed description, reference is made to the accompanying drawings which form a part hereof and in which is shown by way of illustration specific embodiments in which the invention may be practiced. These embodiments are described in sufficient detail to enable those skilled in the art to practice the invention, and it is to be understood that other embodiments may be utilized and that structural or logical changes may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. The following detailed description is, therefore, not to be taken in a limiting sense, and the scope of the present invention is defined by the appended claims.
  • The present disclosure pertains to a simulated cross pendant 10 capable of being incorporated into a piece of jewelry 12, as shown in FIG. 1. While the simulated cross pendant 10 is described herein as a pendant for purposes of simplicity, the simulated cross pendant 10 can be any ornamental piece or member capable of being incorporated or engaged into a piece of jewelry 12, for example, without limitation, the simulated cross pendant 10 can be a pendant, charm, trinket, or the like.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, the simulated cross pendant 10 can have a main body 20 and at least one mounting member. The main body 20 can have the shape of a cross having a vertical member 30 or post and a traverse member 40 where the vertical member 30 and traverse member 40 engage at substantially 90 degrees thereby forming a cross shape having a top portion. As shown in FIGS. 2-3, the vertical member 30 can have a top portion 31 having a top end 32, a side peripheral surface 35, a top peripheral surface 36, and a bottom portion 33 having a bottom end 34. The traverse member 40 can have a first portion 41 having a first end 42, a second portion 43 having a second end 44 and a side peripheral surface 47.
  • The mounting member allows for the simulated cross pendant 10 to be engaged to the jewelry 12. In one embodiment, the simulated cross pendant 10 can be releasably and/or slideably engaged to the jewelry 12. The mounting member can be any mechanism for mounting or incorporating a pendant into or onto a piece of jewelry 12.
  • While the jewelry 12 is preferably a necklace, as shown in FIG. 1, the jewelry 12 can be, for example, without limitation, an eyelet, clasp, clip, or the like. The jewelry 12 can be any type of jewelry 12 for displaying a pendant, for example, without limitation, necklace, bracelet, anklet, ring, pendant, earrings, tie tack, barrette, shirt studs, cuff links, money clip, button cover, pin, broach, or the like.
  • The mounting member can engage the main body 20 at any location on the main body 20. In one embodiment, the simulated cross pendant 10 has a first mounting member 51 and a second mounting member 52. The first mounting member 51 and second mounting member 52 can engage the main body 20 at any location of the main body 20. As shown in FIGS. 2-3, for example, without limitation, the first mounting member 51 can engage the main body 20 at the top end 32 of the vertical member 30 and the second mounting member 52 can engage the main body 20 at the first end 42 of the traverse member 40. In one embodiment, the first mounting member 51 can engage the main body at the top peripheral surface 36 of the vertical member 30 and the second mounting member 52 can engage the main body 20 at the side peripheral surface 47 of the traverse member 40.
  • In one embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4, upon using the simulated cross pendant 10 with a piece of jewelry 12, the simulated cross pendant 10 rotates forming an angle α between the longitudinal axis β of the vertical member 30 in the non-rotated position to the longitudinal axis β′ of the vertical member 30 in the rotated position. While the angle α is preferably approximately 30 degrees, the angle α can be any angle between and including 1 and 89 degrees, for example, without limitation, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80 and 85 degrees. By way of example, without limitation, where the jewelry 12 is a chain, such as a necklace, bracelet, anklet, or the like, the chain engages the first mounting member 51 positioned at the top end 32 of the vertical member 30 and engages the second mounting member 52 positioned at the second end 44 of the traverse member 40, thereby allowing for the simulated cross pendant 10 to hang on the chain at an angle α.
  • By the simulated cross pendant 10 being positioned at angle α, the simulated cross pendant 10 simulates the position of a cross when carried over the shoulder of a person, as shown in FIG. 5. In Christianity, Jesus carried a cross over his shoulder similar to that depicted in FIG. 5 while walking on the road to Golgotha prior to his crucifixion. By positioning the simulated cross pendant 10 in a rotated orientation, the viewer is reminded of this historical event which in turn can remind the viewer of Jesus.
  • In one embodiment, the simulated cross pendant 10 simulates a cross used as an emblem of Christianity.
  • In one embodiment, the simulated cross pendant 10 has at least one letter 60 engaged to the main body 20. While the at least one letter 60 can engage the main body 20 at any location, the at least one letter 60 preferably engage the side peripheral surface 37 of the vertical member 30. In one embodiment, where the simulated cross pendant 10 has a plurality of letters 60, the letters 60 are “O”, “V”, and “E”. The letters 60 “O”, “V”, and “E” can be positioned in a manner that reads “OVE.” In one embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 2-3, the bottom portion 33 of the vertical member 30 and the first portion 41 of the traverse member 40 engage in a manner to form the shape of the letter “L”. In one embodiment, where the letters 60 read “OVE,” the combination of the “L” formed by the engagement of the bottom portion 33 and the first portion 41 with the letters 60 “OVE” display or form the word “LOVE”.
  • In one embodiment, the simulated cross pendant 10 is a piece of jewelry. The simulated cross pendant 10 can be made of precious metals, for example, without limitation, gold, silver, platinum, or the like. Jewels or rhinestones can be incorporated into the simulated cross pendant 10 at any position, for example, without limitation, the main body 20, letters 60, or the like.
  • As used herein, the singular forms “a”, “an” and “the” are intended to include the plural forms as well, unless expressly stated otherwise. It will be further understood that the terms “includes,” “comprises,” “including” and/or “comprising,” when used in this specification, specify the presence of stated features, integers, steps, operations, elements, and/or components, but do not preclude the presence or addition of one or more other features, integers, steps, operations, elements, components, and/or groups thereof. It will be understood that when an element is referred to as being “connected” or “coupled” to another element, it can be directly connected or coupled to the other element or intervening elements may be present. As used herein, the term “and/or” includes any and all combinations of one or more of the associated listed items.
  • The foregoing has described the principles, embodiments, and modes of operation of the present disclosure. However, the disclosure should not be construed as being limited to the particular embodiments described above, as they should be regarded as being illustrative and not as restrictive. It should be appreciated that variations may be made in those embodiments by those skilled in the art without departing from the scope of the present disclosure.
  • Modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings. It is therefore to be understood that the invention may be practiced otherwise than as specifically described herein.
