These unique pieces feature subtle touches of diamonds, gemstones, and engravings and are hand-made in Paris. The first eyewear collection by FRED called “Force 10” was presented in 1988 and produced by Thélios, the eyewear expert of LVMH.

Inspired by FRED’s history of sailing, marine cables and the Mediterranean Sea, the frames feature sophisticated marine details.

The other two FRED’s eyewear collections, the Chance Infinie and Pretty Woman, celebrate the strength and softness of femininity. Inspired by the lemniscate, a sign of infinity and eternity, the Infinite Chance frames reflect the iconic code of the collection with a buckle in a figure of 8. The Pretty Woman collection celebrates love and dedication to it and features the iconic heart motif at the temples. The Maison FRED’s craftsmen are continually adding to their expertise, inventing cutting-edge techniques and developing ingenious designs that redefine the possible. They believe that contemporary relevance lies in cultivating one’s heritage and artistic legacy while looking firmly forward to the future.

Gold Karats

You must have noticed that the solid gold frame glasses are usually offered in two different types of gold: 18k and 14k. If you're on the hunt for a pair of gold spectacles, you may be wondering what this type of gold actually is. A gold karat refers to how pure the gold is. Since gold is made up of 24 parts, 24 karat gold means 100% purity. Featuring a very soft and brittle structure, this type of gold isn’t suitable for creating eyewear pieces. Correspondingly, 18 karat gold consists of 75% gold and 25% alloys, including silver, copper, and nickel. This type of gold is strong enough for daily usage, while still as pure as possible. 18K gold boasts a rich, yellow appearance that makes it a perfect material for sunglasses and optical frames.

14 karat gold is the most popular type of gold for jewelry accessories in the United States, the UK and the other Western countries. Made up of 58.3% gold and 41.7% alloy, it is a perfect mix of durability, purity and value for money. 14K gold features a rich color, with the classic gold appearance that most customers look for in jewelry pieces. Still, it is slightly less saturated and intense than the 18k gold color. Our selection of solid gold frame glasses includes both types of luxury eyewear created by the most expert goldsmiths.
