Neckglasses: Reading Glasses You’ll Actually Want to Wear

Sponsored Post

It began in my mid-40s. My husband and I would be in a restaurant, a dimly lit, romantic-type restaurant, and the waiter would hand me the menu. The menu that was apparently written in the world’s smallest font, in a text color that is just a shade darker than the background of the menu itself. Out would come my iPhone light. I’d furtively glance at the menu in short bursts so as to not draw too much attention to the spotlight gleaming from our dark corner of the room. Despite the assistance of the light, my arms were often not long enough to hold the menu at a distance that made my eyesight cooperate.

Ah, the joys of “middle age.” Your skin finally clears up and your eyesight goes. That’s why I was so happy when I was introduced to Neckglasses. Before you jump to conclusions, Neckglasses aren’t the “granny” reading glasses of old, dangling from a lanyard around your neck and proclaiming your encroaching decrepitude to the world. Neckglasses are “jewelry with a purpose.” That purpose is giving you the ability to read little tiny words and look good while doing it.

Maybe the best part of all is how affordable they are. That means you can choose multiple styles if you want to and not break the bank. Think of them as your new best friends. Catherine, Maria, Dianna and Karen. Each just $29.95! That’s a bargain to avoid having to ask your partner across the table to hold the menu up so you can read it, or asking the waiter to surprise you.

Fashion-Forward Magnifying Glasses for Reading

Choose from these four styles of Neckglasses that can go from casual trip to the grocery store to a night at the opera.

The Catherine comes in gold or silver, with a tassel or “bling.” Wear it as a necklace until you need to read that fine print, then just hold it up to your eyes and “surprise!” you can read every word.

The Dianna locket can be used closed or open and adds a touch of class to any outfit. It’s high fashion meets functional eyewear and it’s offered in silver or gold.

The Karen was the first Neckglasses style offered and remains their most popular. I admit, it’s the one I was first drawn to. It’s stylish and efficient – ready at a moments notice to make the world (or should I say words?) a little clearer. The Karen comes in gold or silver, and with a tassel, cross, bling, or just plain.

The Maria is flexible, functional, and just plain fun. As a tortoise-shell pendant, the Maria will draw compliments and attention. Then, open them up and they’re a full set of lightweight magnifying glasses for reading.

We all have a friend who refuses to acknowledge she can’t read a menu, a playbill or program anymore. Guess what makes a great, useful (and affordable) gift? They’re also perfect for that loved one who is always losing their reading glasses. No more digging through a handbag or glove box. Neckglasses are right there with your other necklaces when they’re not on you!

When I first saw Neckglasses, I thought, “Why didn’t someone think of that before?” Founders of Neckglasses, Karen Ganovsky and sister-in-law Dianna Seddon are simply geniuses in my book. Plus, they’re not only doing good for our egos by making reading glasses a thing of beauty, they’re giving back. Neckglasses is a sponsor of RestoringVision.orgwhich provides reading glasses to those in developing countries with limited or no access to glasses.

Grab a pair of Neckglasses or two… or all four today and watch your friends’ reactions when you go to lunch and are able to read the menu aloud to them.
