Tortoise Shell and Horn Rim Frames: What's the difference?

Classic Oval Tortoise Shell Eyeglasses Imports

House of Parliament and Big Ben, London

Peabody-Pierce #6 are a smaller, more rounded oval version of the #8 frames. This style – typically in a dark tortoise shell similar to frames favored by Winston Churchill – is often chosen by upwardly-mobile members of the bar who aspire towards a career in parliament. The three arches along the top of these frames tend to inspire trust and a sense of stability and integrity, which makes perfect sense for those who desire a career in leadership.


Peabody-Pierce #6 oval frames are often seen on the faces of lawyers and staff that frequent the halls of the House of Parliament.

Over time, a honey amber version of these frames became popular among those whose features and complexion demanded and alternative to the dark tortoise version. As the Peabody-Pierce brand become more popular, so did these frames, but more variety was needed! So the bold demi black style was developed to provide an aggressive leopard version for creative-types. That was a hit, so the clear crystal frames soon followed.
