An elegant necklace with possible practical use too:)

The focal point of this necklace is a vintage optometrist trial lens set in a silver tone metal frame and in great condition with a diopter strength of +1 which is stamped on the tab top. The lens has two small etched marks, not cracks, on the plain section of the glass that were probably made by the optometrist/manufacturer, perhaps as markers for bifocals.

The necklace has been made from a length of beaded chain from a vintage bib necklace, which has tiny black factteed lucite beads, to which I have attached some silver tone chain and a lobster claw clasp. The total length of the necklace is 22" and the monocle dangles 3" from the large oval facetted plastic bead used to connect the two chains to the monocle lens.

If the lens and diopter strength are correct for you it should magnify similarly to reading glasses, otherwise it is still a neat item of jewelry to wear for that Victorian/Steampunk style, for costume use, theatricals etc.. It can even be worn with other silver chains for a fashionable layered look:)

I have a range of different diopter strengths in these lenses which range from +.12 to +3.00 and a few others of +4.00,6.50, 7.50, 10.00 and 12.00 which I can put onto this necklace if requested, instead of the current +1 one. Please contact me if you would like it changed. These lenses are + diopter strength numbers rather than X magnification.
Please contact me if you would like it changed.

*Please note that the lens is glass and not plastic.
Thanks for visiting:)
