Companies have made every single shape and style of eyewear to suit every need. From colored lenses to polarized ones, from cat eye shapes to round shapes, it’s all on the market. However, you won’t believe how much do the most expensive sunglasses in the world cost. Keep on reading and find out!
The most known sunglasses brand is Ray-Ban, one of the most expensive sunglasses brands out there that are accessible to the everyday man. Sure, they may come a bit pricey. But after you read this article, paying $150 for a pair of Ray-Bans won’t be so bad. Founded in 1937, Ray-Bans have always been a crowd favorite, with reasonable prices and an amazing quality. Starting at $140 there is a style and a shape for everyone, from the ultra famous Clubmaster to the original Wayfarer.
Other brands besides Ray-Bans that produce quality eye wear for a pricey tag are brands like Prada, Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Miu Miu and Versace. These brands are mostly known for their clothing, but their sunglasses are often labeled as a “passing craze”, meaning one minute they are super popular and in style, and the next one they are considered OUT. So, spending the big buck on sunglasses like these is not the smartest choice.
Time for the main question: “What are the most expensive sunglasses out there?” Let’s start with counting down the top 10 most expensive sunglasses in the world… for now.
Yes, the list begins with $27,000 so you can only imagine at what price it will end. The Lugano Diamonds Sunshades are made from the jewelry company Lugano Diamonds in collaboration with designer Barton Perreira. The cost of the sunglasses ranges for different frames, as some frames have more rare diamonds on them than other frames.
Bvlgari is a company known for luxury jewelry, but in the last couple of years they have ventured into making sunglasses, of course very expensive ones. Only 10 of these sunglasses were made, so that they are more exclusive.
Yes, you read the company name right, the same Bentley that is known for its cars. Well, now they are expanding into sunglasses. Ones that will look ultra cool on the people that drive their cars, with a price rounding up to 50k.
Coming up on the 7th place of the world’s most expensive sunglasses is another pair by Bulgari. The Flora Sunglasses are made of 18k gold with flower details on the frames for that special fashionable touch.
Another car company, with the same intentions. The perfect sunglasses to wear while driving this car, so that their customers can look super stylish. And super stylish in this case means 18k gold sunglasses encrusted with 147 diamonds. Yikes!
The fifth most expensive brand of sunglasses is Luxuriator Style with canary diamonds encrusted on the sunglasses. Sounds snazzy, as well as the price tag. These sunglasses have 18k gold frames as the previous couple of pairs, but these ones have lenses that are adjustable for the correct light.
These sunglasses are definitely the most unique, out of the whole list. The whole body of these fancy sun shades is made of 18k gold, and it makes sense that only 100 pairs were made.
The third place belongs to the most expensive women’s sunglasses that are made out of pure EMERALD! Yes, Shiels created sunglasses that have emerald lenses, in celebration of The Wizard Of Oz.
What more can we expect from Dolce & Gabbana? With gold frames and their signature encrusted from pure diamonds, the price of $380,000 fits perfectly and only a handful of people can afford them.
And here we are, the most expensive sunglasses in the world are the Chopard De Rigo Vision Sunglasses that cost more than $400,000. How crazy is that! The luxurious Swiss brand Chopard in collaboration with designer De Rigo created this masterpiece that we call Vision Sunglasses. Made of 24k gold and diamonds, these shades get the crown.
And there you go, the most expensive sunglasses brand in the world. And we can all agree that the price is out of this world. In retrospective, maybe those Prada sunglasses weren’t so pricey after all.
