5 Most Expensive Sunglasses Ever Made

By on February 4, 2015

Sunglasses are an item that nearly every one of us owns. Some of us buy decent pairs of shades, while others – myself included – are content using sunglasses that we get for under ten bucks at Urban Outfitters.

In a pair of sunglasses, the only features that are actually important are that the glasses shield your eyes from the sun, and protect you from harmful UV rays.

Almost all contemporary sunglasses, even those you can get for free at promotional events, are capable of fulfilling these needs. With the ubiquity of UV technology in sunglasses, it’s more likely than not that any pair of sunglasses you put on will keep you adequately protected against the sun’s rays.

However, that doesn’t mean that for some wealthy people, having ridiculously stylish sunglasses is worth spending scores of thousands of dollars.

Here are the 5 most expensive sunglasses that money can buy.

#5: Luxuriator Style 23 Canary Diamond Sunglasses – $65,000

The Luxuriator Style 23 Canary Diamond Sunglasses are produced by Los Angeles-based Jewelry by Franco, a well known luxury jeweler, and carry the brand’s reputation for jewels and diamonds into this pair of shades.

With a cost of $65,000, these sunglasses will make you feel like royalty on bright, sunny days, as they come adorned with 132 hand cut diamonds, 18-karat gold frames, and even ivory from buffalo horn to connect the frames to the lenses.

It is not proven that diamonds, gold, or buffalo horn protect you any better from sunlight than plastic, but don’t worry, these glasses have lenses, too!

As you’d hope for $65k, the Luxuriator Style 23 Canary Diamond Sunglasses also come with quality lenses that can adjust to lighter and darker environments, just in case you were concerned about functionality instead of diamonds and gold.
