Translucent Amber Rimmed Frames with Tortoise Shell Temples
While visiting Paris, one of our designers took her husband to the original Cartier jewelry store in the Place Vendôme. Her spouse admired a luxurious Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch in one of the showcases, and she marvelled how it was designed perfectly to have an epicene quality in that it suggested a strong, self-assured masculinity when worn by men, and an equally strong, self-assured femininity when worn by women. After studying the breathtaking characteristics of this classic watch, she found herself imagining how it could be interpreted as matching eyewear. Upon returning to our studios, she began developing these frames as a pet project. Her labor of love paid off, and we proudly offer Diamants Ambre frames, whose name is French for “amber diamonds”.
Tortoise shell and translucent rimmed frames inspired by amber diamond watches.
Diamants Ambres are a handsome combination of gem-like elegance and masculine angularity. Wide rectangular pale amber rims sparkle like champagne, and are contrasted with rich dark sienna tortoise shell temples. Made from premium zyl acetate with spring hinges for a comfortable fit, Diamants Ambre are classy, elegant frames for work, a night out or window shopping along the the Avenue des Champs-Élysées with your lover.
