25 of The Most Expensive Eye Wear In The World

Posted by Sharon Chin on Wed, Feb 13, 2013 @ 07:02 AM

As always, the girls at Optical Vision Site have something fun for us. Today, we take a peak into what it's like to dress like the rich and famous with a countdown of the most expensive eyewear. A recent study shows that the average amount consumers plan to spend on an eyewear purchase is $173, and 75% of frame purchases are for frames of $150 or less. So you won't be seeing me wearing any of these fancy eyewear anytime soon, but it's fun to dream! 

25 of The Most Expensive Eye Wear In The World 

For the past couple of years we have been posting our annual MOST Expensive Eyewear in The World. This year we have included a few 'vintage' pieces along with some that are on ebay. Other companies that have gold and jeweled eyewear are Ogani, Cartier, and Fred, but they are not included on this post. For more information and to view some of the past Most Expensive Eyewear, including Dolce and Gabbana ($389,000, 14KT gold Clic, $75,000), see our Pinterest Board.
