Glasses and jewellery go hand in hand- right? Well, they are both accessories. So how about combining the two together? Yes, thats right, how about turning your glasses into a decorative necklace. If you are a glasses wearer and find it hard to keep diving into your handbag to change from your glasses to sunglasses or vice versa then you need to know about the Cutler and Gross glasses chains. No, we are not talking about the old school style glasses chains where you pretty much only see an “older” person wearing them to hold their reading glasses, we are talking about real fashionable chains that you can probably just wear as a necklace if you wanted to.
You wouldn’t expect any less from Cutler and Gross, each is a real statement piece just like their specs and definitely NOT your average glasses chain. There are a few available from the capsule collection and they are all inspired by surrealism, Dali and iconic influence of Schiaparelli. Now… check out this glasses chain below… not your average one that is for sure, however it is only a one off so don’t get too excited and go rushing out the door to buy one!
Everything within the collection is handmade just like their optical range (it is all about the handmade) and you can rest assured the materials used for the necklaces are also high quality. Why should we expect any less from Cutler and Gross. They are made out of either plated gold or palladium and prices start from £160 and go to £205 depending on the plating used. They are not available online so you will need to take yourself into their store over at 16 Knightbridge Green, London, SW1X 7QL. I am sure you will want to try before you buy anyway to make sure it goes with your glasses- right 😉
If you are stuck with christmas gift ideas for an optical wearer then get them the Cutler & Gross glasses chain.
