I think of this necklace as sort of the elegant great aunt of my Quizzing Glass Necklace.

I found the large (just under 2 inches in diameter!) magnifying lens while poking around the medical section of a university book store. I believe it was intended for use in examining wounds and such.

I decided it should have a more glamorous fate, and set to work on the Grand Quizer. I set the lens into a fine silver bezel and a sterling silver bail. The chain is nice and long, (30 inches) and finished with a custom sterling clasp. I gave the necklace a bit of patina, and Voila!
The Grand Quizzer! It comes in its own organza bag to help keep it fingerprint, and scratch free.

This necklace is suitable for both men and women. It looks amazing on, and it's essential for reading things like the fine print on a million dollar contract. Or just the menu in a dark restaurant!

Quizzing: 'The act of mocking by a narrow examination through a quizzing-glass or by pretended seriousness of discourse'. -Royal Dictionary Cyclopedia of Universal Reference by Thomas Wright, 1865
