Some brands stand out when we think of spectacular spectacles, in particular BVLGARI, Cartier and Chopard. Transitioning from jewellers or watchmakers, each of these brands pride themselves on their heritage and attention-to-detail in design choosing only the best materials when constructing their extravagant eyewear. 
 
First speaking about Cartier. The Cartier brand is widely recognised as one of the most prestigious jewellery brands in the world. Founded in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the first Cartier boutique opened in 1859 establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with within the luxury sector - each design by is undeniably created to the highest quality and bound by passion and prestige. Committed to excellence, upholding their reputation as the ‘jeweller of kings’ with each and every release - Cartier work with a wide variety of materials including solid gold, titanium and steel. These metals are then paired with Bubinga wood, Buffalo horn, leather, carbon and Onyx in order to forge each pair of their impressive frames comprised of unique shapes.

Similarly, the BVLGARI brand is recognised for its true excellence in design. Founded in 1884 by Sotirios Voulgaris, a Greek silversmith, the brand has continuously created luxurious frames with incredible attention to detail in regards to colour and design, with just a touch of eccentric flair. Their unmistakable creativity with styles to fit any face allow BVLGARI to craft with the finest materials that are recognizable the world over. BVLGARI use precious metals such as gold and Austrian crystals to carefully craft their timeless designs in a beautifully ornate style that is so distinctively unique to the brand’s heritage. 
 
Chopard is a Swiss manufacturer and retailer of luxury watches, jewellery and accessories which was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, a Swiss watchmaker. Today the Chopard brand is owned by the Scheufele family of Germany and each of the brand’s main product lines is created around each of the Scheufele family member's passions running from precious stones to vintage racing cars. These influences can be seen through Chopard’s impressive use of exclusive compositions of diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds alongside unexpected cuts and sizes opening up a world of unparalleled glamour and craftsmanship. Chopard’s eyewear collection is where originality, creativity and technical mastery are pushed to their ultimate limits. Chopard has given top priority to training its artisans focusing on constantly improving production processes and specialized skill sets. Due to this care Chopard glasses impressively showcases the brand’s hand-crafted details, combined with cutting-edge technological skills, giving new life to each glasses design.
