When it comes to luxury eyewear, Cartier naturally comes to mind. Cartier has been synonymous with luxury, craftsmanship, and sophistication for over a century. From its humble beginnings in 1887, when a pair of tortoiseshell opera glasses set with diamonds was created for a French princess, to the present day, Cartier remains at the forefront of opulent design and impeccable quality.

Their eyewear collection is no exception, with each pair of glasses crafted from the highest-quality materials, including precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, precious stones, acetate, wood, and genuine horn. Whether you’re after brow bar detailing or the iconic Panthere de Cartier boldly displayed on your shades, Cartier eyewear will set you apart from the crowd and let them know you’re all about high-end fashion and a distinguished look. It’s time to experience the ultimate luxury whether you opt for non-prescription sunglasses or Cartier prescription sunglasses.
