LENS is optical-grade double plate glass. Strong, durable and scratch resistant.
MAGNIFICATION POWER: For best results, choose a magnifier with the lowest power necessary to fit your needs. The higher the magnification, the shorter your focal length and the smaller your field of view, so choosing the lowest magnification required will ensure the best possible field of view for your intended tasks:
--- 3.5x is standard READING power, recommended for optimal reading purposes. Kind of like 3.00 readers. All words in the lens will appear evenly sized, sharp and clear. Gentle magnification prevents eye strain. Available in lens size 1", 1.5" and 2".
--- 5.5x is a strong MULTI PURPOSE strength for general enlargement. Words/images may appear a bit warped around the edge of the lens. Recommended for very small print and miscellaneous tasks such as removing splinters. Available in lens size 1.5" and 2".
--- 7.5x is close to loupe strength. Not recommended for reading. This is a CUSTOM ORDER lens for special needs/tasks. Available in lens size 1.5" and 2".
**MAGNIFYING GLASS REFUND/EXCHANGE POLICY... Please note, I cannot resell glass lenses with *any* amount of lens wear and therefore must require a $20 glass resetting fee on used/scratched magnifier lenses**
Each piece is completely hand fabricated, therefore one of a kind. It's a delicate balancing act, ensuring my pieces have both fine craftsmanship yet loads of unique, artisan-made character. I’m mindful to ensure each piece falls in the “shop small” category from start to finish by using green materials when possible (reclaimed, up-cycled, ethically mined) and only purchasing fair trade, hand-cut stones directly from independent lapidary artisans. I love knowing more than one heart went into crafting each piece I make, and more than one family will benefit from their creation. I hope you like.
