Opticians trial lens circa 1920s made into a beautiful and simple necklace.

I found a small collection of vintage opticians trial lenses which I've turned into necklaces.

Each gold tone rim has a number to indicate its power. The glass also has the power on the side. The lenses are in excellent condition. Each lens measures 33 mm (1.3 inches) in diameter and hangs from an antique gold chain. The chain length on the life-sized mannequin is 26 inches. You can choose your chain length at checkout (any length up to 32 inches).

Comes gift boxed.

* Please note this is NOT a magnifier * I have some lenses which make great magnifying glasses as well as beautiful necklaces. These are listed separately here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/86242967/magnifier-necklace-monocle-necklace
