Patented Feb. 22, 1938 2,108,904 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,108,904 I REVERSIBLE SETTING Louis Shakter, Brooklyn, N. Y., assignor of ?fty percent to Frank Zoldo, New York, N. Y. Application April 12, 1937, Serial No. 136,310 4 Claims. The purpose of this invention is to provide im provements in reversible settings of the type used for brooches, clips, and the like‘, in which the setting is mounted ‘between two pins, and 5 means is provided for locking the setting with either side exposed. The invention is a brooch, clip, or the like, having an opening therein, with a setting pivot ally mounted in said opening, and adapted to be 0 turned over to expose either side, in which the setting is provided with recesses in the opposite sides, into which a latch, positioned at one side of the opening, may snap to hold the setting with either side exposed. 15 ' Reversible settings have been provided for dif (01. 63-31) Other tion' will taken in Figure features and advantages of the inven appear from the following description connection with the drawing, wherein: 1 is‘a view showing a front elevation of a brooch with a, reversed setting. Figure 2 shows a rear view of a brooch of. an alternate design, in which the back is plain. Figure 3 is a similar view showing another alternate design with parts omitted, and in which the setting is removable. ‘ showing another alternate design, in which the setting is held by a spring pin. Figure 5 is. a view showing a clip with a re versible setting. ' ferent types of jewelry and other articles, and Figure 6 is a similar view showing a scarf pin some of these have been provided with spring with a reversible setting. Figure '7 is also a similar view showing a ring with a reversible setting. In the drawing the device is shown as it may be made, wherein numeral l indicates a base pins for holding the setting in different positions, but it has been found advisable in jewelry, par 20 ticularly of the type used for brooches and clips, to provide a positive lock in the form of a pin extending into an opening in the settingfor posi tively holding the setting in either position; and it has also been found desirable to provide 25 mounting means in the form. of spring pins by which the setting may readily be removed, so that another setting may be used in its place. The object of the invention is, therefore, to provide means for positively looking a setting in 30 jewelry or the like, without means projecting from the setting, and, at the same time, by which the setting is positively held with either side exposed. Another object is to provide a setting for r jewelry or the like, in which the setting is inter changeable and, at the same time, reversible. A further object is to provide means for hold ing a jewelry setting with either side exposed, in which the holding means comprises a pin slidably 40 mounted on the piece of jewelry, and adapted to extend into openings in the opposite sides of the setting. And a still further object is to provide a re versible setting for jewelry and the like having ” positive locking means, which is of a simple and economical construction. a latch. The base I may be in the form of a brooch, 25 as shown’in Figures 1 and 2, in which the face may be covered with marcasite settings, or may be plain as shown, or may be of any type or de sign. This base may also be in the form of a clip as shown in Figure 5, or of a scarf pin or 30 ring, as shown in Figures 6 and 7, or may be shaped to form any other article as may be de sired. In the design shown the setting 2 is pivotally mounted by pins 4 and 5 extending into recesses 35 i5 and 1 in the opposite sides, as shown in Figure 2, and with the setting mounted in this manner it will be noted that it may readily be turned over to expose either side, and one side may be plain or provided with marcasite settings, or 40 may have an initial as shown in Figure 5, or may be covered with an enamel of any color, or the sides may be formed in any manner. It is preferred to hold the setting 2 by a simple slidable pin forming a latch 3, which is slidably mounted in a bearing 7, and provided with a With these ends in view the invention embodies head 8 by which it may be moved outward or inward. The setting may also be provided with 9. lug 9 to limit the outward movement to pre vent losing the latch. The end of the latch setting, in which the setting is provided with with two of said openings adapted to receive pins forming bearings, and the other two of said openings adapted to receive a sliding latch posi tioned at one side of the base, and adapted to’ 55 hold the setting with either face exposed. 15 representing an article of jewelry and the like, numeral 2 a reversible setting, and numeral 3 an article of jewelry comprising a base and a oppositely positioned openings at right angles, 10 Figure 4 is a cross section on an enlarged scale, member 3 extends into a recess 10 in the setting, as shown in Figure 2, and a similar recess H is provided in the opposite side, and it will be noted that with the latch 3 withdrawn the. setting 2 may be turned over, and the latch may be in 2,108,904 2 serted into the recess II to hold the setting with the opposite side exposed. The base I may also be provided with a pin 42 by which it may be held to a garment or the like. CR It will be understood that this particular mounting involves the use of four recesses posi tioned at right angles in the sides of the setting with pins forming bearings extending into two ' oppositely positioned recesses, ‘and with the other 10 two recesses provided to receive the end of a latch for locking the setting, and the type of bearings or latch may be changed as desired. ' It will also be understood that the latch 3 may be formed as shown in Figure 3, in which it is in dicated by the numeral l3, and in which it is mounted in a bearing M with a spring 15 around a pin I5 and engaging the end of the latch l3, and also the inner end of the ‘bearing, thereby resiliently holding the latch outward, and the latch is provided with a head I‘! by which it may readily be withdrawn to release the setting. In this design'the latch extends into recesses l8 and i9, similar to the recesses HI and II, in the setting 20 in the base 2|, and it will be noted that this type of latch may be used with the bear ings shown in Figure 2, or the bearings may also be formed with spring pins 22 and'23 resiliently held in bearings 24 and 25 by springs 26 and 21, and these pins are provided with heads 28 and 29 3 O by which they may readily be drawn outward to release the setting 20, so that one setting may be removed and another inserted, providing a greater variety of changes. The device shown in Figure 4 is merely an en larged detail, showing a section through the brooch shown in Figures 1 and 2, with a spring latch of an alternate design for holding the set be made without departing from the spirit of the invention. One of which changes may be in the shape or design of the setting, as this: may be of ' any other shape instead of round as shown, an other may be in the use of the device in the set ting of any other type, such as for a stone with out a metal base or frame, and still another may be in the use of several settings in one article of jewelry, or in any combination of the settings with jewelry, as may be desired. 7 It will be understood that although the pins upon which the setting is mounted are shown vertically positioned, and the latch horizontally positioned these may be reversed, or the pins may be positioned at any angle, and the latch may 15 also be positioned at any angle in relation to the pins, instead of the right angle as shown and de scribed. The construction will be readily, understood from, the foregoing description. In use the‘ de vice may be provided as shown and described, and although it is preferable to use this mount ing, for brooches, clips and the like, it will be understood it may be used vfor jewelry of any type. The jewelry may also be provided with one 25 or any number of settings, and these may be maroasite on one side and plain on the other, or provided with initials, monograms, or any char aoters or designs and with the setting reversible or interchangeable. A different color setting may 30 be used to correspond with the color of a dress or garment, and with the setting mounted in this manner it has no objectionable pins or pro jections extending therefrom, as all of the mov able parts are incorporated in the base or mount mg. , Having thus fully described the invention, ting, and showing in detail the relative positions what I claim as new, and desire to secure by of the recesses in the setting for receiving the Letters Patent, is: 40 latch.

The inner end 36 'of-the latch extends into a recess 3'! in the setting, and the opposite side of the setting is provided with an ‘ other recess 38 also positioned to receive the end 35 of the latch with the position of the setting reversed about the bearings formed by pins ex tending into the recesses 39 in the opposite sides of the setting. It will be noted that the recesses SI and 38 are positioned above and below the center of the bearing formed at the point 39, . making it possible to hold the setting with the surfaces parallel with the base in either position. The clip As shown in Figure 5 is provided'with a setting ill pivotally mounted on pins 42 and 4-3, and held with the setting in either position by a latch il?i shown in dotted lines. The scarf pin 435 shown in Figure 6 is also similar, in that a setting 45 is pivotally mounted by pins 47 and 48 in the frame, and this is held in either position by a latch 49.
