Jewellery locket

     A jewellery locket with a space that can be used for storing an item is presented. The jewellery locket can used as a pendent with various other

5

jewellery items such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and the like.

     The jewellery locket can be manufactured in various sizes. The locket is in the following described in three different sizes; small, medium and large, but is not limited to these sizes.

     In the following description, reference is made to the accompanying figures, which show by way of illustration how the locket may be practiced.

     Figs 1a-1c show different views of the locket 1. Fig. 1a shows a front view of the locket, fig. 1b shows a side view and fig. 1c shows a cross- sectional top view.

     The locket 1 may be arranged in at least two configurations; a closed configuration (as seen on fig. 1b) and an open configuration (as seen on fig. 1c or fig. 1d).

As seen on fig. 1b and 1c the jewellery locket 1 comprises a front part 100, which is an annular or ring-shaped, circular disc, and a rear part 200, oppo-

site of the front part when the locket is in the closed configuration, which rear part 200 is an annular or ring-shaped, circular disc. The locket 1 further com- prises a closing means 300 and a hinge 400.

     The front part 100 comprises a circumferential, circular front edge part 110. The front edge part 110 has an outside surface 111, a side surface

112 and an inside surface 113.

     Likewise, the rear part 200 comprises a circumferential, circular rear edge part 210. The rear edge part 210 has an outside surface 211, a side surface 212 and an inside surface 213.

The rear edge part 210 and/or the front edge part 110 may be pro-

vided with ornaments or engravings.

     The front part 100 further comprises a centrally positioned front view- ing part 120. The front viewing part 120 has a first surface 121 and an oppo-

site second surface 122.

     Likewise, the rear part 200 further comprises a centrally positioned rear viewing part 220. The rear viewing part 220 has a first surface 221 and an opposite second surface 222.

The term "centrally positioned" should not necessarily be understood

so as to mean "positioned at the centre of a circle"; rather, it should be under- stood so as to mean that it is not positioned at or touching the edge of the locket 1.

     Said front part 100 has a centre coinciding with a centre of the front viewing part 120 and a centre of the front edge part 110. Said second part

200 has a centre coinciding with a centre of the rear viewing part 220 and a centre of the rear edge part 210.

     The front viewing part 120 and/or rear viewing part 220 are made of a transparent material, such as glass, which enables a user to view through said viewing part.
