Jeweller, Zoï Paris is entirely dedicated to sunglasses chains. They’re more like beautiful necklaces and are made using precious and semi-precious stones from India each with healing and talismanic properties: onyx to calm anxiety and improve rationality, self-control and confidence, pearls for easing tension etc. These are strung on fine gold and gold-plated chains at the Zoï workshop in Paris, and a small selection are available to buy in London at Harrods, from £110.
