DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The Preferred Embodiment of this Invention

The jewelry article related to the embodiment of this invention will be better understood from referring the following drawings.

The First Embodiment of this Invention

FIG. 1 illustrates an external figure of the front side of the jewelry article 1 relates to an embodiment of this invention. FIG. 2A illustrates an external figure of a back view of the base 20, and FIG. 2B is a side lateral view of the base 20, on which a main body of a jewel 30 of the jewelry article 1 illustrated in FIG. 1 is fixed. FIG. 2C illustrates a cross sectional structure of the base 20. FIG. 3 illustrates a cross sectional structure in a state of that the jewelry article 1 illustrated in the FIG. 1 is mounted on a lens 70 of the pair of eyeglasses 3.

As illustrated in FIG. 1, the jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses comprises for example; a chain part 10a and 10b, a base 20, a main body of a jewel 30, a rear surface magnet 40 of a lens of the pair of eyeglasses, and a ball-part for an eyeglass frame.

Hereupon the chain part 10 and the base 20 are compounded of, for example; gold (Au), silver (Ag), platinum (Pt) or other metals etc.

Hereupon, the base 20 is an example for a base of this invention, the main body of a jewel 30 is an example for a main body of a jewel of this invention, the rear surface magnet 40 is an example for a part of this invention and the chain part 10a and 10b is an example for a linear article of this invention.

The jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses has the base 20 set in a permanent magnet on a front surface of the lens of eyeglasses and the rear surface magnet 40 on a rear surface of the lens confronting with the base 20. Therefore, the lens is tucked by the magnetic force generated between the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40, and the main body of a jewel 30 can be put on a desired position on a front surface of the lens.

By the jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses, an end part of the chain part 10b is connected to a holdback 42 of the rear surface magnet 40, and another end part of the chain part 10b is connected to a holdback 22 of the base 20.

Then, an end part of the chain part 10a is jointed to the holdback 22 of the base 20, and a joining-part for an eyeglass frame 65 is set to another end part of the chain part 10a.

Therefore, even if the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 fall because of their positioning difference on the lens occurred by some impacts to the main body of the jewel 30, the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 are in a state of being hanged down on an eyeglass frame through 10a and 10b of the chain part 10 joined to an eyeglass frame by the joining part for an eyeglass frame 65. This can prevent the main body of a jewel 30, the base and the rear surface magnet 40 from losing.

Each component of the jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses is explained in detail as followings.

As illustrated in FIG. 1, by the jewelry article for eyeglasses, an end part of the chain part 10b is jointed to the holdback 42 of the rear surface magnet 40, and another end part of the chain part 10b is jointed to the holdback 22 of the base 20.

Then, the end part of the chain part 10a is connected to the holdback 22 of the base 20, and the joining part for an eyeglass frame is set to another end part of the chain part 10a.

The chain part 10a and 10b is compounded, for example; metal or synthetic resin.

The length of the chain part 10a is, for example, approximately 3-20 cm, preferably approximately 7 cm.

The length of the chain part 10b is, for example, approximately 2-10 cm, preferably approximately 4 cm.

The length of the chain part 10a and 10b are determined according as the positioning of the jewel 30 on a lens of eyeglasses and a demand on the length of the chain part 10a and 10b.

A joining part of an eyeglass frame 65 is formed from a loop of the chain part 10b by a ball-part for an eyeglass frame 60.

A ball-part for an eyeglass frame 60 has a penetration hole 60a, which passes a central point of the ball, and the chain part 10b passes through the hole 60a in a state of being removable.

The ball-part for an eyeglass frame 60 is used to adjust the size of the loop of the joining part of an eyeglass frame 65 formed partially of the chain part 10a located between the holdback 62 and the hole 60a. This joining part of an eyeglass frame 65 is mounted on an eyeglass frame.

When the ball-part 60 for an eyeglass frame is moved by fingers etc. to the base 20 along the chain part 10a closer, the loop mentioned above becomes bigger, and when the ball-part 60 for an eyeglass frame is moved to the holdback 62 closer, the loop mentioned above becomes smaller.

An user puts an eyeglass frame through the loop, while the user makes the loop big moving the ball-part 60 for an eyeglass frame along the chain part 10a. Then, the user makes the loop small on a fixed position of a lens of the eyeglass frame 3, as illustrated FIG. 4.

This can prevent the joining part of an eyeglass frame 65 from unfastening from the eyeglass frame 3 readily.

The rear surface magnet 40 is a permanent magnet and for example, a disk shape having the outside diameter as approximately same as the base 20's.

The holdback 42 is set on the outer circumference of the rear surface magnet 40.

The holdback 42 is joined to the end part of the chain part 10b.

The base 20 is for example, approximately a doughnut shape, and the holdback 22 is fixed on a set position of its outer circumference.

An end part of the chain part 10b and 10a are connected to the holdback 22.

As illustrated FIGS. 2A, 2B and 2C, 4 prong settings 24a, 24b, 24c, and 24d are installed at a regular space along the outer circumference of the base 20 to hold the main body of a jewel 30, which is a diamond.

The holdback 22 is set on the outer circumference of the prong setting 24a.

The thickness of the base 20 is, for example, 1.5 mm.

Moreover, a ring shaped permanent magnet 90 is held in the bottom side of the base 20. A diamond is cut usually approximately conic; therefore, its apex side should be mounted in the midair part of the ring of the permanent magnet 90 in the base 20 as shown in the FIGS. 2A, 2B, and 2C. As a result, the entire thickness of the base 20 and the main body of a jewel 30 can be thin, and its design can be superior.

It is still illustrated that a diamond as the main body of a jewel 30 is hold by 4 prong settings 24a, 24b, 24c, and 24d in this embodiment, more or less than 4 prong settings may be formed. Alternatively, the main body of a jewel 30 may be another material besides a diamond.

The structure to hold the main body of a jewel 30 on the base 20 is properly selected according to every variety of the main body of a jewel 30.

Alternatively, the base 20 itself may be formed by a permanent magnet.

It is explained a manner how to place a jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses to an eyeglass frame 3 as followings.

As mentioned above, a user puts an eyeglass frame 3 through the mentioned above loop of the joining part for an eyeglass frame 65, while the user makes the loop big moving the ball-part 60 for an eyeglass frame to the base 20 along the chain part 10. Then, the user makes the loop small on a fixed position near a lens of the eyeglass frame 3, as illustrated FIG. 4. As a result, an end part of the chain part 10 is set on an eyeglass frame 3.

As shown in the FIG. 3 and FIG. 4, the user places the base 20 on a desired position on a front surface of the lens 70 of eyeglasses next so that the main body of a jewel 30 is located on the front side. While keeping the state above mentioned, the user positions a side of the rear surface magnet 40 relatively to the base 20 on the front surface of the lens 70 of eyeglasses, whereby a magnetic force functions in a direction of attracting each other between the rear surface magnet 40 and the base 20.

Concretely, when a side of the base 20 met a front surface of a lens is the south pole of a magnet, a side of the north pole of the rear surface magnet 40 is met a rear surface of the lens. On the other hand, when a side of the base 20 met a front surface of a lens is the north pole of a magnet, a side of the south pole of the rear surface magnet 40 is met a rear surface of the lens.

As a result, the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 are attracting each other by a magnetic force through the lens 70 of eyeglasses, and sufficient friction to keep the position of the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 against gravity respectively is generated between the base 20 and the front surface of a lens, and the rear surface magnet 40 and the rear surface of the lens.

By the jewelry article 1 for eyeglasses being mounted on a lens 70 of the pair of eyeglasses, even if the main body of a jewel 30 and the rear surface magnet 40 fall because of positioning difference of the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 on the lens 70 occurred by some contacts to the main body of the jewel 30, the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40 are in a state of being hanged down on an eyeglass frame through the chain part 10 joined to the eyeglass frame by the joining part for an eyeglass frame 65, as illustrated in FIG. 5. Therefore, it can be prevented to lose the main body of a jewel 30, the base 20 and the rear surface magnet 40.

Moreover, the jewelry article 1 comprises design character as shown in FIG. 1 etc. Therefore, it can provide a superior design unifying the jewel 30.
