Description:

The present invention is a continuation in part (CIP) of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 11/207,793 which is disclosed and assigned to the inventor of the present invention and thus the contents of the invention is incorporated into the present invention as a part of the present invention.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

This invention relates to a pendant, particularly to one having a main body and a decoration inlaid in the main body. The main body is provided with a hollow chamber formed, a plurality of edge lines symmetrically projecting on a peripheral wall of the chamber, an inlay groove formed in each edge line, a deep gap formed to communicate with the chamber in the main body, and a hanging hole. The decoration is inlaid in the chamber of the main body, having a plurality of inlay sides to fit firmly in the inlay grooves of the edge lines. Then the decoration is pushed in the chamber of the main body, after the gap is pushed open, so the decoration may be inlayed in the main body, with the inlay sides respectively fitting in the inlay grooves of the edge lines of the main body, kept stably in the main body, with the assembling process being quick.

2. Description of the Prior Art

Conventional pendants generally include a main body and a hanging member adhered or connected with the main body. The hanging member may be a chain adhered to or hooked with the main body, so the main body may often liable to get loose, separate from the hanging member and falling down.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The objective is to offer a pendant having its decoration inlayed stably in a main body, and a hanging member never falling off the main body.

The main feature of the invention is a main body of a pendant provided with a hollow chamber for inlaying a decoration. The chamber is provided with a plurality of edge lines symmetrically located on a peripheral wall of the chamber, with each edge line provided with an inlay groove for inlay sides of the decoration to fit with so as to let the decoration stably inlayed in the chamber by pushing open a deep gap communicating with the chamber and the decoration shoved through the gap to reach the chamber.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS

This invention may be better understood by referring to the accompanying drawings, wherein:
