Jewelry for insertion through the bore of a body part piercing. The jewelry comprises a crescent-shaped body of a memory resilient material having terminal ends adapted to be inserted within a piercing. A concave depression is defined on an inner side of one of the terminal ends. A second body such as a ball bearing is insertable between the terminal ends and is firmly seated within the concave depression to clasp the jewelry within the piercing. The ball bearing has a diameter slightly greater than a distance between the terminal ends of the crescent-shaped body to first force the terminal ends apart and then create an inwardly directed biasing force against the second body when the ball bearing is inserted therebetween, thus firmly holding the ball bearing within the concave depression and between the terminal ends.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
