Description

JEWELRY SYSTEM

BACKGROUND

1. Field of the Invention

[0001] The present invention relates generally to jewelry, and more specifically, to a jewelry system for carrying a liquid substance such as lip-gloss or perfume.

2. Description of Related Art

[0002] Jewelry is well known in the art and provides a means for men and women to customize and accessorize outfits. For example, necklaces, earrings, and keychains are just a few of the items used to accessorize outfits.

[0003] One of the problems commonly associated with conventional jewelry is lack of excitement and uniqueness. For example, many people wear similar jewelry items, and therefore cannot express their unique sense of personality or style through their jewelry.

[0004] Accordingly, although great strides have been made in the area of jewelry, many shortcomings remain.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

[0007] Illustrative embodiments of the system and method of use of the present application are provided below. It will of course be appreciated that in the development of any actual embodiment, numerous implementation-specific decisions will be made to achieve the developer's specific goals, such as compliance with system-related and business-related constraints, which will vary from one implementation to another. Moreover, it will be appreciated that such a development effort might be complex and time-consuming, but would nevertheless be a routine undertaking for those of ordinary skill in the art having the benefit of this disclosure.

[0008] The system and method of use in accordance with the present application overcomes one or more of the above-discussed problems commonly associated with conventional jewelry. Specifically, the present invention provides a means for a user to customize and personalize their jewelry. These and other unique features of the system and method of use are discussed below and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

[0009] The system and method of use will be understood, both as to its structure and operation, from the accompanying drawings, taken in conjunction with the accompanying description. Several embodiments of the system are presented herein. It should be understood that various components, parts, and features of the different embodiments may be combined together and/or interchanged with one another, all of which are within the scope of the present application, even though not all variations and particular embodiments are shown in the drawings. It should also be understood that the mixing and matching of features, elements, and/or functions between various embodiments is expressly contemplated herein so that one of ordinary skill in the art would appreciate from this disclosure that the features, elements, and/or functions of one embodiment may be incorporated into another embodiment as appropriate, unless described otherwise.

[0010] The preferred embodiment herein described is not intended to be exhaustive or to limit the invention to the precise form disclosed. It is chosen and described to explain the principles of the invention and its application and practical use to enable others skilled in the art to follow its teachings.

[0011] Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference characters identify corresponding or similar elements throughout the several views, FIGS. 1 -4 depict various views of a jewelry system 101 in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present application. It will be appreciated that system 101 overcomes one or more of the above- listed problems commonly associated with conventional jewelry.

[0012] In the contemplated embodiment, system 101 includes a locket 103 with a container 105 enclosed within an interior 300 of locket 103. It is contemplated that locket 103 can be a solid body, or alternatively can include a back 301 and a door 303 connected to back 301 by one or more hinges 107 and one or more closure clasps 109, thereby allowing door 303 to open and close, as shown in FIGS. 3-4. In this embodiment, container 105 can be removed and replaced, thereby providing a means for a user to change the purpose and contents of container 105. [0013] In the preferred embodiment, container 105 includes a lid 1 1 1 configured to extend above a top surface of locket 103. Lid 1 1 1 further includes an applicator 1 13 extending into the interior of container 105. Container 105 is configured to hold a liquid substance, such as lip-gloss, perfume, essential oil, or bubble blowing liquid. Applicator 1 13 is configured to be removed from container 105 via lid 1 1 1 , thereby providing a means for a user to access the liquid substance. One contemplated means of removing lid 1 1 1 is via a threaded connection 305 on container 105, however it should be appreciated that various connection means could be used.

[0014] In the preferred embodiment, locket 103 includes a loop 1 15 secured to the back of locket 103, as shown in FIG. 2. It should be appreciated that loop 1 15 can be secured by any means to locket 103, thereby providing a place to attach a chain, cord, or other similar device.

[0015] As shown in FIGS. 5A-5C, various contemplated embodiments of applicator 1 13 are shown. In one embodiment 501 , applicator 1 13 is a solid piece of plastic, thereby being appropriate for use with perfume. In an alternative embodiment 503, applicator 1 13 further includes a foam cover 505 configured to cover an end of applicator 1 13 and thereby being appropriate for use with a lip gloss. In yet another alternative embodiment 507, applicator 1 13 includes a hole 509, wherein the applicator could be used with a bubble blowing liquid disposed within container 105. It should be appreciated that applicator 1 13 can vary in size and material.

[0016] It should be appreciated that one of the unique features believed characteristic of the present application is the incorporation of container 105 into a locket. It should be understood that this feature provides a means for the user to carry a liquid substance, such as lip-gloss or perfume, in a fashionable piece of jewelry.

[0017] In FIGS. 6 and 7, two exemplary embodiments of jewelry items with system 101 incorporated are shown. In FIG. 6, system 101 is attached to a necklace 601 having one or more chains 603a, 603b and one or more charms 605 connected to chains 603a, 603b and configured to be inserted through loop 1 15 to hold necklace 601 in place around a user's neck. It should be appreciated that chains 603a, 603b can vary in materials, including metals, nylons, and/or silks. It should further be appreciated that additional chains and charms can be incorporated into necklace 601 , while the essential function of system 101 is maintained. It is further contemplated that charm 605 can be removable, replaceable, and/or attached to additional chains or at various locations of the necklace, thereby providing an additional means of customization.

[0018] In FIG. 7, a keychain 701 with system 101 is shown. It is contemplated that loop 1 15 can be used to attach to a chain 703 to a keyring 705 to create keychain 701 , thereby providing an alternative means of carrying system 1 01 . It should be appreciated that chain 703 can alternatively attach directly to locket 103 or in any other means appropriate to secure system 101 to a keychain.

[0019] It should be appreciated that the various components of system 101 can vary in shape, size, and material as aesthetical, functional, or manufacturing considerations require.

[0020] In FIG. 8, a front view depicts an alternative embodiment of a jewelry system 801 comprising a container 803 configured to hold a cosmetic or perfume therein, and further including an applicator 805 integral with a lid 807. In this embodiment, a loop 809 or similar structure, is attached directly to the container 803, thereby providing a means to wear and use the contents of container 803 without a locket. It should be appreciated that system 801 can replace system 101 in connection with a necklace, keychain, and the like as has been described above. Further, the applicator and contents of the container can be changed as previously described.

[0021] The particular embodiments disclosed above are illustrative only, as the embodiments may be modified and practiced in different but equivalent manners apparent to those skilled in the art having the benefit of the teachings herein. It is therefore evident that the particular embodiments disclosed above may be altered or modified, and all such variations are considered within the scope and spirit of the application. Accordingly, the protection sought herein is as set forth in the description. Although the present embodiments are shown above, they are not limited to just these embodiments, but are amenable to various changes and modifications without departing from the spirit thereof.
