Glasses chains don’t exactly have the best reputation, but they are so much more than glorified lanyards. In fact, glasses chains are pieces of jewelry in their own right. If good design happens when form meets function, than the glasses chain should be hailed as a miracle.
Brands like Frame Chain and Rosantica seem to get that, creating beautiful pieces that can be worn alone or with your glasses on them. In the mood for something a little more whimsical? New brand Tuleste is full of colorful, fun options. For example, this Fruit Charm strand is charming and kitschy without being too Golden Girls. For all you tortoise fans out there, this metal and resin option is modern enough to feel fresh. And if you just want a classic option? Our new favorite sunglasses brand Le Spec offers chains that come in silver and gold, and fit right in with today’s necklace layering trend.
Don’t wait until you lose your next pair of glasses. Grab a pair now!
