This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in an ear ring clasp.
More particularly, the invention contemplates
an improved ear ring clasp made from plastic
or sheet metal and which is characterized by a
harp-like resilient member for engaging against
one side of the ear lobe and having its side arms

into lug portions I3. An ornamental member
I5 is provided for engaging the other side of
said ear lobe indicated by said lines II. This
ornamental member I5 has a jewel I5 or other
ornamental piece mounted on its front face. The
ornamental member I5 is also providedwith a
back stem I1 having a disc-like end I8 axially
pivotally mounted between the lugs I3 with a
directed downwards. It is proposed to provide

The rigid slide 25 may be shifted along the
length of the leaf spring portion 20 and will be
held in various positions by the serrations 29
and 3d. In different positions, the slide 25 holds
different lengths of the leaf spring 2U rigidly, so
that it may not flex as easily. Consequently, if
the slide 25 is nearer the base of the leaf spring
2i! the free portion has greater flexibility than
if the slide 2‘5 is moved to a position nearer the
free end thereof. The position of the rigid slide "
25 determines the extent of the holding action
between the serrations 2| and 22.
While I have illustrated and described the
preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to
be understood that I do not limit myself to the
precise constructions herein disclosed and the
right is reserved to all changes and modifications
coming within the scope of the invention as de
ñned in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new, and desire to secure by United
States Letters Patent is:
1. An ear ring clasp, comprising a harp-like re
silient member for engaging against one side of
one’s ear lobe and having its side arms directed
downwards, an ornamental member for engag
ing against the other side of said ear-lobe and
having a stern with a disc-like end axially piv
otally mounted between the side arms of said
harp-like member, and a leaf spring portion ex
tending from the central portion of said harp
like member and having ratchet teeth engaging
complementary ratchet teeth on the edge of said
disc-like end, the free end of said leaf spring por
plementaiy ratchet teeth on the edge of said
disc-like end, and a rigid slide movable to var
ious positions along said leaf spring portion for
limiting flexing thereof.
3. An ear ring clasp, comprising a harp-like
resilient member for engaging against one side of
one’s ear lobe and having its side arms directed
downwards, an ornamental member for engaging
against the other side of said ear-lobe and hav
ing a, stem with a disc-like end axially pivotally
mounted between the side arms of said harp-like
member, and a leaf spring portion extending
from the central portion of said harp-like mem
ber, having ratchet teeth engaging complemen
5 tary ratchet teeth on the edge of said disc-like
end, and a rigid slide movable to various posi
tions along said leaf spring portion for limiting
flexing thereof, comprising a pair of adjacent
strips secured together at several points and slid
ably engaging opposite sides of said leaf spring
portion, the ends of said strips engaging oppo
site faces of the side arms of said harp-like
member.
4. An ear ring clasp, comprising a harp-like
resilient member for engaging against one side
of one’s ear lobe and having its side arms di
rected downwards, an ornamental member for
engaging against the other side of said ear
lobe and having a stem with a disc-like end
axially pivotally mounted between the side arms
of said harp-like member, and a leaf spring por
tion extending from the central portion of said
harp-like member, having ratchet teeth engag
ing complementary ratchet teeth on the edge of
