Eyewear worn by the Sons and Daughters of Dublin
On the east coast of Ireland, we saw beautiful people lounging on the banks of the River Liffey. When we approached them, we were taken aback to note that it was their eyeglasses that made them seem so beautiful, and so we copied them with our own special quality finishes. These light weight gems are fashioned for us and turned into the authentic “prince” shape. Available in two colors; a matte bronze with highlights and a gleaming gold with a beautiful thin tortoise shell overlay around the front of the lenses. We added engineered spring hinges to satisfy our most demanding customers.
The River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland is where we first saw these princely frames.
These frames both have rounded fluting on the hinges and temples, which end at rectangular knobs leading to a graceful tapering. The gold Dublins temples are capped with amber brown tips that pick up the rims inlays, while bronze Dublins have black temple tips.
