nice product
The lenses are of good quality for close up work. The clip to hold them is also pretty good considering what it is supposed to do, any slight modification is all that's needed to fit whatever glasses you have.

Bought this item as an accessory for my mad scientist Halloween costume and it looked pretty darn cool. The item itself actually works really well and makes a very good visual aide.

A bit heavy, consider the double instead.
This loupe is of excellent quality; however, it is a bit heavy and drags ones glasses off center. Additionally, all three lenses makes the focal length from the front most lens about half an inch, which is a bit close for soldering. It looks nice, but perhaps consider the 2 lens version instead.

This Loupe is great. Seriously, it would be worth the price if it was just a display piece that didn't work... but it does work! Okay, we are not talking Zeiss optics here, but something that can help you fix a pocket watch (mine did) for under ten quid? Damn fine deal! There are some issues with the spectacle clamp (it doesn't work well with slender glasses arms) but a small fold of cardboard or a couple of tiny leather patches and a dot or two of glue fixes that (Historical Emporium will receive a bill for $0.003 for the modifications it took to make this piece perfect). Seriously though, Great product.

Perfect gift!
My husband wears glasses so it was great to find these. He can wear his goggles on his head and have the clips on his regular glasses for and added extra to his steampunk look. We both love them! Thank you!

neat product
I bought this for a steampunk costume for my child. It's so cute and well made. It clips on easily and looks exactly like the picture.

triple clip-on magnifying loupy
The clip that attaches the loupy to the arm of the eye glasses is not sufficient, especially paired with the vintage style eye glasses. I also tried to attach it to the hinge of the arm and the clip was just not strong enough. In the end I created my own fastener and attached the loupy to my homemade goggles. I am still satisfied, I just had to adapt my concept.

Clip on magnifying loups
I'm putting together a steam punk - crazy scientist - costume for Halloween. These add that special touch. Devil's in the details...

This is indeed a very unique product, easy to clip on and it does its job. It gave me a lot of looks, not only silly ones. A bunch of people even asked me where I got them from. Will always recommend Historical Emporium on such occasions!

Just as it looks, and it works
The triple clip-on magnifying glass loupe looks exactly as it does int he picture, it works as you would expect, and it's easily transferred from one set of glasses to another. And, as icing on the cake - they actually work, too. :)

This is great for real use, and for costume. It works for when I need to view fine print! And it looks good besides!

Very cool but heavy.
These clipped onto my glasses very easily. I got lots of complements (or at least surprised, interested looks and comments). However, I found these clip-on lenses were a little heavy for my particular glasses. My glasses didn't want to sit straight. Also, because my glass frames are thin metal, the clip-on would rotate slowly during wearing. I believe that a heavier frame, with thicker, flatter surfaces, would hold it more securely.

Very nifty!
I really like this item! great for my steampunk attire. However, they don't fit very well on my glasses because of their design (the glasses, not the magnifiers)

One man's loss is another woman's gain
I bought this product in the hope that I could use it to clip on my sunglasses and flip one lens down to use for reading at my outdoor job without taking my shades off. Alas, the focus distance became about two inches, so as I feared, it didn't work for that. However, my wife is painting and detailing a series of birdhouses, and it is just perfect for the close and tiny, so while it didn't meet the original need, it fills another that we weren't even aware of. It stays put on the glasses, and the lenses stay where you put them. The spring in the glasses clip could be a little stronger, as if you bump it with a brush handle or the back of your hand, it pops right off, but that's a small complaint. A good, functional product, and I'm glad I bought it.

Very Useful
I ordered this loupy to complete my Halloween costume. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it actually works. I have been using it to do some detail sewing. Excellent!

Very cool, but not perfect
The magnifying loupy is very cool both aesthetically and functionally, but the clip-on mechanism is a bit of a pain. It works all right, but is less than versatile; when used on my own glasses, it barely holds onto the thick frame, and when used on the Common Spectacles from this site, it flatout can't get a grip because the frame is too thin. The clip will require further modification to be wearable in any practical sense. However, the functionality of the lenses themselves, as well as their mechanism, is just dandy.

Great Product
I was amazed at the fast shipping. To ship to New York it took only 3 days! I love the magnifier. Its so fun to wear. The only problem is that the lenses sometimes slip down and the nut has to be re tightened. Other than that, I see no faults with these. Now I need to buy some nice goggles. :)
Nov 6, 2012
Great idea though implementation is tough. Parts are small and may fall off, also in general heavier than expected and clip does not seem to reliably hold on. Still as one of their side products the loops are great flair an for the price worth a little bit of extra work to use.

Nice piece. Sometimes lenses loosen and fall, but, that's to be expected at this price.

I can see clearly now
Since I actually wear "spectacles", I couldn't enhance my costume with a monocle or what have you, so I went with these instead. They give my image that extra little something and they actually work as well! (Like when I need to read the fine print on the pocket sundial I also got here.) The adjustable tension keeps them up out of the way until you're ready to use them. And you can't beat the price!

Loved this item. I really want to keep it on my glasses full-time. It's certainly a conversation starter.

Well made, looks great!
I bought this for my husband's Steampunk ensemble. He isn't one to get very excited about things, but immediately put these on his glasses and wore them around. He loves them! They do add some weight to your glasses, but you get used to it. Well made, and even useful! We're very pleased!

Great Loupe, Highly recommended
This was a wonderful purchase. I enjoy the loupes very much and they are great, easy to set to your specifications. Just make sure you have glasses that it can fit on properly. lol.

The illuminated loupe is a great attention getter and conversation piece. It is a bit distracting to wear for any length of time (imagine walking around with one eye closed). I also found that the metal band tends to slip off the back of my head. Great item if you have a need for an illuminated loupe, but an awkward piece to wear around at a party.
Jan 21, 2013

An absolute hit!
Of all the pieces I bought from Historical Emporium, this Illuminated Loupe was hit of the evening. It was commented on by everyone who saw it. A touch of steampunk, a touch of tech and a touch of fantasy depending how you use it with any outfit.
