First invented as a form of protective eyewear, sunglasses became one of the most prominent items in ones possession. Rocked with fabulous white pearl chokers in true Breakfast at Tiffanys fashion or paired with boho sundresses, shades are a fashionistas must-have regardless of the occasion.

Worn on the street or in the car, while going to the office or to the beach, sporty or fancy, cycling sunglasses are basically everywhere right now. Sometimes even in night clubs, after midnight. Why? I have no idea. But I wont be the one to stumble on my way to the bar, trying to look cool.

From the inuit snow goggles made out of ivory to todays best eyegear, sunglasses have been serving our eyes for a very long time. In the 1920s, they became widespread, especially among celebrities and movie stars, the common reason being privacy. Later on, they were worn at the beach as the ultimate fashion accessory.

While their primary role was to protect our eyes from the harmful rays of the sun like UV or blue light, sunglasses have evolved into something more. Today they combine fashion and functionality. They assert status and demand privacy.

For some individuals, status is everything, so the sunglasses must be up to the task. Lavish, crafted by luxury designers from high-end materials, such as gold, platinum, diamonds, emeralds or other precious gemstones, these super expensive shades are available for the richest clientele in the world.

Whats more, to expand ones status, the item has to be scarce. So most of the pricy sunglasses we are about to present here come in limited numbers. They dont only protect ones eyes, but more. They protect ones status. But we cant say the same about ones wallet.
