What are Pince-nez?

Pince Nez spectacles famously have no arms, simply clipping onto the nose of the person wearing them. Aptly named for the French terms pincer, “to pinch”, and nez, “the nose”, their functional yet intriguing design make them highly desired for both vintage collectors and modern fashion aficionados, especially after Morpheus of the Matrix brought them into modern culture.

Pince Nez are a unique form of eyeglass frames from the late 19th century and early 20th century. They accounted for over two-thirds of all glasses sold within the United States in the early 1900’s.

Originally developed in Europe during the 1400s, it was their arrival in the United States that truly saw them become one of the biggest trends of the late 19th century. After being popularized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series in The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez in 1904, they became an even large worldwide phenomenon, before the trend began to fade in the 1920s.
