Lorgnette was originally created to allow royals and aristocrats to not have to wear glasses but held in the hand while remaining versatile. It later evolved together with glasses chains into fashion accessories that are widely adored by people of taste. Glasses chains have been revamped into becoming an indispensable statement jewelry in the world of styling.
