"954,568, Patented Apr. 12, 1910 VICTOR A. GEBHARDT, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.


Specification of Letters latent.

Patented Apr. 12, 1910.

Application filed December 6, 1909. Serial No. 5 1,540.

To all whom it may concem:

Be it known that I, VICTOR A. GEBHARDT, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented a certain novel Setting for Precious Stones, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof," reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making a part of this specification.

In the mountmg of diamonds and other precious stones, it is customary to mount small stones in a cluster so grouped together as to resemble at a little distance a single stone ofthe size of the cluster.

It isthe object of my invention to construct this setting for such stones in that certain novel manner to be 4 hereinafter pointed out and claimed, whereby'the resemblance to a single stone of the size of a group of smallstones shall be largely in-' creased.

In the drawings,Figure 1 is a side elevation of a ring, with my improved setting. Fig. 2 is-a top plan view. Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view of the setting removed from the ring. Fi 4 is a side elevation ofthe framework 0 the setting without the stone. Fig. 5 is a side' elevation 'of a modified construction of this setting. Fig. 6 is a bottom plan view of the same. 1 is a metal disk or plate upon which the small stones 2, 2, are mounted. This plate "is usually a circular disk raised towar the center'to resent a slightly conical surface 3, in whic the holes or recesses 4:, 4, are formed to receive the small stones.

- In order to enhance the resemblance to a single stone, I secure wires 5, 5, tothe pecry of the disk or plate 1 at equal dis tances apart, and bring these wires together at the vertical axis of the plate, so that the edge of the disk forms a girdle for what resembles a single large stone, the stones themselves being symmetrically disposed on the plate with a central stone to form the table,

and the depending wires resemble the edges of the facets of a large stone below the girdle.

Instead of securing wires to the under surface of the holding plate, thin metal plates may be employed soldered together at the edges, so that metal facets are formed as The plate with the stones mounted therev on and the depending portion of the frame can be readily mounted as a single stone in a ring 8, or for a pin, or any other desired way.

at I claim as new, and tion and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is; I v

1. A setting for acluster of small stones comprising a disk or plate to hold the stones, with a framework secured to'the plate and. dependin therefrom to resemble the facets of a brilllant below the girdle.

2. A setting for a cluster of small stones yomp'rising a isk or plate to hold the stones, with wires secured to the edge of the disk at equal distances from each other, and meeting at the vertical axis of the plate to resemble the meeting edges of the facets of a brilliant below the girdle.

3. A setting for a cluster of small stones comprising a disk or plate to hold the stones,

with wires secured to the edge of the disk at equal distances from each other, and extended downwardly to resemble the meeting edges of the facets of a brilliant below the girdle. Y
