the lower end of a depending flange on the outer
ear-rings and other articles and objects and con- i
bezel to hold the parts in assembled relationship.
With this arrangement of the bezelsit is neces- 5
sary after the stones have been set to tip the
5 sists in improvements in mountings of the type
disclosed in my prior patent, No. 1,818,324, issued
August 11, 1931.
mounting or turn it over to flange over the pro
'
One of the objects of the present invention is
to provide a mounting of the type indicated in
10 which a ring of stones may be set and secured
in place while the mounting is held in an upright
position.
Another object of the invention is `to provide
a mounting of the type indicated including a. pair
of cooperating annular bezels forming a ring with
a peripheral annular groove in which a cluster
. of stones are held.
¿
Another object of the invention is to provid
a mounting of the type indicated which is adapt
20 ed to receive a central stone and an annular
cluster of stones surrounding the central stone.
Another object of the invention is to provide
a mounting of the type indicated having a highly
-w ornamental appearance, a simplek and compact
25 structure lending to economical manufacture and
assembly, and a sturdy construction for securely
holding the stones in place.
Further objects of the improvement are set
forth in the following speciñcation which de
30 scribes two embodiments of the invention, by
jecting end of the inner bezel. In turning the
mounting over the stones are apt to fall out of
place and when ornamenting a finger-ring the 10
shank of the ring interferes with the insertion
of the flanging tool. Still further, the applica
tion of a flanging tool to the end of the inner
bezel tends to force the bezels apart rather than
to draw them together in tightly assembled rela
tionship.
The present invention corrects the above
mentioned deficiencies in a simple and compact
arrangement of elements. In its broadest aspect
the present invention provides a locking flange 20
or collar which may be formed as a separate base
member or integrally with one of the bezels. The
collar extends upwardly through the central
opening in one of the annular bezels and its end `
is ñanged radially outward into engagement with
the edge of this bezel adjacent. the opening
through which it extends to clamp the two bezels
in assembled relationship. Due to the fact that
the locking collar projects upwardly through the
opening in the inner bezel its end may be de
way of example, as illustrated by the accompany

In the jewel mounting disclosed in my prior
and arrangement of the elements the hanging CAD
of the end of the collar tends to tighten the
bezels rather than force them apart.
Referring first to Figs. l to 4 of the drawing,
the numeral I0 designates the shank of a ñnger- 40
ring which may be formed in one piece and rolled
to provide an opening at the top to which an
annular base-member of the mounting is soldered
or otherwise suitably secured. As herein illus
trated the base-member II is of generally
trough-shape having an outer peripheral annu
lar flange I2 to which the shank of the ring is
soldered and a frusto-conical collar I3 extending
upwardly at the center of the base. The sides
of the finger-ring I0 adjacent the base-member 50
II may be provided with suitable sockets I 4 of
usual construction fo-r setting stones I5.
An annular bezel I6 is mounted on the base
member I I with its outer edge seated against the
peripheral flange I2 and with the frusto-conical 55
2
2,058,978
collar E3 extending upwardly through the rela
tively large central opening therein. The annular
bezel Iê, shown in detail in Fig. 4, is preferably
stamped from a single piece of sheet material
and formed with a plurality of generally conical
recesses or sockets l2' arranged in regular or any
desired order around the central opening.
The
outer peripheral edge of the bezel it“ is bent to
form an inwardly-extending flange I8, the hange
10 being ribbed to provide a series of curved shoul
ders i9 for engaging the beveled edges of a series
of jewels or stones 25 set in the sockets Il. The
edge portion of the bezel I6 adjacent its inner
periphery is curled over to form a depending an
15 nular flange 2l, the edge of which seats against
the frusto-conical collar I3 of the base-member
II. In the embodiment of the invention illus
trated in Figs. l to 4 of the present drawing, the
bezel I6 is of generally frusto~conical shape s0
20 that stones 2D mounted therein face outwardly
and upwardly, but it is to be understood that the
bezel may b-e hat or take other contours.
An inner annular bezel 22 is mounted on the
base-member il with the projecting collar I3
25
extending upwardly through its central opening.
The inner bezel 22 has a conical portion 23 or"
the same general contour as the flange 2! of the
outer bezel I3 to adapt it to seat thereagainst.
Above the harige 2l the bezel 22 projects radially
outward to form an overhanging shoulder 24
overlying the sockets Il in the bezel I8 to hold
the stones 2l! in place. The upper projecting
for the bezels to b-e separated during the hang
ing operation. Further, due to the frusto-coni
cal contour of the collar i3 and the conical por
tion 23 of the inner bezel 22 which extends at
an angle to the. collar, the hanging of the end
25 tends to draw the two bezels tightly together.
The inner and outer bezel members i3 and 22
are thus securely fastened to the base-member
I I and the ring of stones 2G set between the bezels
are securely held in place. The Central stone 2'! 10
may be set in the seat formed by the conical por
tion 23 of the inner bezel 22 and the edge por
tion 23 of the bezel is deformed or hanged over
into engagement with the peripheral edge of the
stone to hold it in place'.
15
A modihed form of mounting is shown in Figs.
5 to 8 for an annular cluster of stones which may
be used to ornament various articles. In this
embodiment of the invention the base-member is
eliminated and the locking means is formed in 20
tegrally with one of the bezels. Each Of the bez
els 35 and 36 is in the form of an annulus of
generally Írusto-conical contour having
rela
tively large central opening. As shown in Fig. 6
the bezel 35 has its outer edge 3i serrated and
hanged over to provide a series of teeth or hne
prongs extending around its entire periphery.
The inner edge of the bezel 35 is also flanged
inwardly to provide a laterally-projecting collar
or rim 38 which has a function the same as the 3.0
end 25 of the collar I3 is hanged over into en
truste-conical collar I3 of the base-»member II
in the previously described modihcation. Be~
tween the inner collar 38 and Outer harige 31
gagement with the inner peripheral edge' of the
the bezel 35 has a series of recesses arranged at
35 inner bezel 22 to secure its conical portion 23
hrmly seated against the flange 2l of the bezel
I6. The lower end of the conical portion 23 is
cupped or indented at v26 to receive the hanged
end of the collar I3, the two connected parts thus
40 forming a continuous conical seat or socket for
Y a central stone 2li. The central stone 2'! is held
regular intervals to form sockets 39 for receiv
ing a ro-w of jewels or stones 43.
35
The opposite bezel 3B, as shown in Fig. ‘7, has
its outer peripheral edge 4I serrated and hanged
inwardly and a central opening 42 of a diameter
substantially the same as the outside diameter of 40
the laterally-projecting collar 38 on the opposite
in its setting by the outer edge portion of the
bezel 35.
inner bezel 22 which is hanged over at 28 into
the bezel 36 which cooperate with the sockets 39
in the bezel 35 to embrace the stones 40.
In this last-described form of construction -the 45
bezel member 35 may be placed with its outer edge
gripping engagement with the peripheral edge
45 of the stone.
Preferably, the upper edge kof this
hanged portion 28 of the inner bezel 22 is ser
rated to form a series oi prongs 29 for gripping
the edge of the stone 2l.
In assembling the parts of the mounting the
50 annular base-“member il may be soldered to the
shank lil of the hnger-ring as explained above or
when the mounting is to be used to ornament
other articles the base-member is set in a suit
able support. The outer bezel I6 is then placed
55 over the conical collar I3 of the base-member II
and seated on the annular hange I2. A series
of the stones 2€] are then placed in the sockets Il
in the bezel IE5 and are held` on one side by the
shoulders i9 on the outer periphery of the bezel
60 which overlie one side of the sockets. The inner
bezel 22 is then placed over the central collar I3
and pressed downwardly so that the annular
horizontally-extending shoulder portion 24 en
gages the opposite sides of the stones 26 set in
6,5 the sockets Il in the outer bezel member I6.
Without changing the position of the mounting
the bezels I6 and 22 are fastened together by
inserting a suitable hanging tool through the
opening in the inner bezel 22 to spread or swage
over the projecting portion 25 of the collar i3
into engagement with the conical portion 23 of
the inner bezel member. As the force applied
at the end 25 of the base-member II is resisted
by the shank I9 of the finger-ring or othersup~
port on which it is mounted there is no tendency
Recesses or sockets 43 are formed in
engaging a hat support so that the annular col
lar 38 extends upwardly.y A series of the stones
40 are set in the sockets 39 around the bezel 35
to form a ring with their edges engaged by the 5,0
teeth on the serrated edge 3l of the bezel. The
opposite bezel 36 is then placed over the bezel 35
with the collar 38 projecting upwardly through
its central opening 42. The bezel 36 is then ad
justed with respect to the bezel 35 so that the 55
sockets in the two bezels register and the edges of
the stones are engaged by the serrated edge 4I.
The bezel 36 is pressed toward the bezel 35 and the
projecting edge of the collar 38 on the bezel 35 is
flanged over the inner edge of the bezel 36 to se
cure the parts-0f the mounting in assembled re
lationship as shown in Figs. 5 and 8. As in the
previously described construction the collar 38
may be hanged over while the bezel 35 is in such
position as to retain the stones 40 in place so that 65
the operation of assembling the mounting is
much simpler and convenient to perform. The
ring of stones may then be mounted to ornament
any suitable article such as a cylindrical con
tainer, pen or similar article or the mounting may 70
be used as a finger-ring.
The invention having now been described in
detail it will be observed that a novel form of
mounting is provided which facilitates the assem
bly `of a cluster of stones for general use to orna
