Nothing short of jewellery for the face, the latest frames from luxury eyewear brand Silhouette are made of gold with Swarovski crystal inlay.

Always fun accessories, eyeglasses often echo the latest fashion trends, taking on colours and patterns seen on the ready-to-wear runways. But what if designers approached eyewear as a form of jewellery? Setting out to do just that, Silhouette has introduced the elegant Crystal Diva eyeglass frames.

Eyewear becomes jewellery with new Swarovski crystal frames DECOR

Handmade in the brand’s Austrian workshops, the multi-layer 23K gold-plated frames are adorned with around 200 Swarovski crystals of one millimeter each in diameter. These jewels are applied to the branches using a technique known as “Cristal Appliqué”, which is said to offer optimal shimmer.

The Crystal Diva eyeglass frames’ branches are available in three colors: Rhodium Crystal, Gold Crystal and Gold Vintage Rose. These bejeweled eyeglass frames are available for around $1,290.
