The present invention relates to the jewelry
art, and has particular reference to the con
struction of earrings.
The principal object of the invention is to pro

flange 20 of a resilient tip 2| the base flange con
stituting the rim portion of the resilient tip.
The resilient tip 2|, see Figs. 3 and 4, is prefer
ably made of rubber, and may be of any desired
shape, the illustrated embodiment being of cup
type cone shape with the upper cone end 22
forming an ear engaging portion which is slightly
vide a novel clamping device for an earring.
Another object of the invention is to provide a
clamping device for an earring made of resilient
material.
A further object of the invention is to provide
a rubber suction grip for an earring.
