Why choose metal frames when shopping for new eyewear frames? Metal frames are durable and come in a wide variety of colors and finishes, such as titanium, gold, silver, and stainless steel, so you will always find the right style.
Metal Eyeglass Frames
Two of the most common metals used in eyewear frame manufacturing include titanium and stainless steel. Titanium and stainless steel share several desirable traits:
- Lightweight but strong
Titanium comes in a wider variety of colors, patterns, and textures, however, stainless steel is more affordable.
Silver & Gold
Precious metals make a distinctive statement in eyewear. Frames in silver and gold—or with silver or gold accents—are a bit more expensive, so prepare to spend more. Gold and sterling silver are both hypoallergenic, but also soft and flexible which means they are most often used as plating or accents for eyewear frames.
If you love the look of precious metals, consider shopping handcrafted Lindberg Precious frames in 18-carat solid yellow gold, white gold, red gold, and Precious Black, as well as platinum. The unique natural horn temples add another layer of distinction to an already elevated eyewear look.
We also recommend shopping eyewear by Cartier to find styles in your favorite precious metals, like gold and platinum, as well as natural horn and semi-precious stones.
