Gold & Wood produces the highest quality eyewear, from the most desirable natural materials, in beautiful, timeless designs. Every Gold & Wood frame is handcrafted, one by one, in their Luxembourg factory. The manufacturing process is designed to minimize ecological impact, from the non-toxic dyes to the strict protocols for waste management.
As the name suggests, the essence of Gold & Wood frames are the beautiful natural materials from which they're crafted. Metal offerings include aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel with a 3-5 micron, 18k plating in yellow, white, rose, or black gold, along with platinum, ruthenium, rhodium, and palladium. Their woods, which are waterproof, hypoallergenic, and lightweight, come from an FSC-certified supplier, and include ebony, tanganika, amaranth, and bubinga (among others). The famous horn comes from the water buffalo. As (another) natural material, no two pieces are exactly alike.
Every pair of glasses is prescription ready. Non-Rx options include regular sunglass lenses, polarized ones, gradient polarized (Gold & Wood is the only maker we know of who offers these), and 18k or 24k white or yellow gold plated lenses.
