EAR ORNAMENT
Constance Harris, Providence, R. I.
Application April 24, 1937, Serial No. 138,772.
6 Claims. (01. 63-14)
This invention relates to an ear ornament;
and has for one of its objects the provision of
face portion about the ear l2. In Fig. 2 I have
illustrated'at I3 the scar which is formed about
an ear ornament which may be so located on
the ear as to cover the scar formed in connec
the lobe IQ of the ear when a face lifting opera
tion with face lifting.
Another object of the invention is the pro
vision of an ornament which will extend about
the ear just forward of the lobe of the ear as
well as beneath- and in back of the lobe of the
II)
ear and snugly hug the head about this portion
of the ear so as to hide any imperfections of the
skin at this location.
Another object of the invention is the pro
vision of an ear ornament which will be of
15 simple construction and yet one which will be
located differently than ear ornaments usually
used with a different purpose in view.
With these and other objects in view, the in
vention consists of certain novel features of con
20 struction, as will be more fully described, and
tion has been performed. It is this scar which
it is desired should be covered by the ear orna
ment which I provide.
'
The ear ornament consists of a clamp I 5 which
may be of any suitable construction, but is pref
erably U-shape, as'illustrated in Fig. 5, with, a
pair of spaced arms I6‘ and II. An abutment
portion with a smooth rounded surface I8 is
carried by the arm I5, while a tubular bearing
[9 is carried by the arm I1 and internally
threaded to receive the threaded shank 20 hav
ing a head or handle 2I at one end and an abut
ment 22 at the other end with a rounded or con
vex surface. The lobe of the ear may be posi
tioned in this U-shaped clamp and there held
by rotation of the shank 20 by means of its head
2I to bind the clamp ?rmly upon the ear.

In the art of face lifting a scar on the skin
occurs about the ear just forward of the lobe of
the ear and beneath and in back of the ear. It
40 is di?icult for the person having had this opera
tion to maintain the hair down about the ear in
a location to cover the scar thus formed; ac
cordingly, it is desirable that the scar be cov
ered by some ornament, and I have provided an
45 ornament which may be ?xed upon the lobe of
the ear in such a location as to cover this scar
and hide the same from view so that there is
no need for the hair to cover this lower portion
of the scar; and the following is a more detailed
50 description of the present embodiment of this
invention, illustrating the preferred means by
which these advantageous results may be ac
complished:
With reference to the drawing, the human
ear is designated generally ID, the neck I I and
15

An ornament designated generally 23 which “
is held rigidly to this portion of the clamp. This
ornament as here illustrated is of a convex shell
shape covering the U-shaped clamp I5 and
bulged outwardly as at 25 leaving the arm ll
of the U clamp free for some springing move
ment. A recess 26 is formed in this ornament,
which recess registers with the opening between
the arms l6 and I‘! so as to receive the lobe I4
of the ear therein. Thus, as illustrated in Fig.
3, the lobe l? of the ear may be inserted Within
the recess 26 and between the arms l6 and II
and the threaded member 20 may be set up
against the back of the ear or against the inner
surface of the lobe I4 so as to bind the same in
position.
In order that the device may ?t closely about
the ear and snugly against the portion of the
head about the ear, the edge surface 29 of the
ornament is formed in substantially a single
plane, which plane is parallel to the plane of the
U clamp I5 and closely adjacent to the plane of
the U clamp I5, which is apparent in Fig. 6.
Thus, there are no portions protruding beyond
this inner surface which would engage the face
about the ear and project the ornament outward
ly so that the scar I3 might be visible.
50
The ornament being rigid with the U-shaped
member may thus be positioned wherever desired
and by reason of its recess may receive the ear
to extend both forwardly and rearwardly of the
same, as illustrated by the dotted line 28 in Fig. 2 55
