In addition to metal and plastic, eyeglasses frames also come in unique materials like buffalo horn. Choosing the right material for your eyeglass frames isn’t just about aesthetics—it’s about comfort, too. Although less common, a material like buffalo horn might be right for you.
About Buffalo Horn Frames
Although the high price point might be prohibitive—buffalo horn eyeglass frames start around $1000—consider the comfort factor. Buffalo horn is naturally lightweight and very comfortable to wear—important to those of us who wear eyeglasses all day long. You’ll also find that buffalo horn frames warm up to body temperature, and are hypoallergenic which makes them even more wearable. Available in exclusive boutiques, buffalo horn frames are handcrafted and require occasional conditioning—a service we provide here at Eye Elegance.
Among our many unique services, Eye Elegance offers complimentary buffalo horn conditioning. Restore luster and shine to all buffalo horn products with regular professional conditioning, which will preserve your horn to ensure years of service.
Harvesting the Buffalo Horn
The horns are harvested from the Asian water buffalo, which are in no way endangered; further, the horn can be harvested without harming the animal.
Every Design is One of a Kind
By definition, your buffalo horn frames will be unique to you. Each pair of frames made from buffalo horn are truly unique thanks to the one-of-a-kind colorations and striations of the material itself.
