Price Range for Pince-Nez

During the past three year we have received many emails recommending sellers of pince-nez. Sometimes we are shocked by the prices charged by many sellers for antique pince-nez mountings and frames. We believe that a reasonable price range for pince-nez, hoop springs or fingerpiece, is anywhere from $10 to $40 for base metal or gold-filled material in wearable condition. Gold mountings in 10k or 14k should be in the $60 to $125 range. This range is based on recent eBay sales.

As previously mentioned, you may have to try on several pince-nez to find one with the right fit. This is why we emphasize the buyer looks for a good return policy.
