Gold Frame Glasses: Why This Shimmery Style Is Always In

If you’re looking for eyewear that is elegant and refined, look no further than gold frame eyeglasses. Whether you wear them to enhance your vision, for blue light protection, or just as a fashion statement, shimmering gold frames can light up your face and take your look to the next level. 

In this article, we’ll be answering your top questions about gold frame glasses, as well as sharing GUNNAR’s most stylish blue light blocking glasses with gold frames. Let’s dive in!

What color frames are best?

The frame color you choose is a personal decision and depends on your unique style. Gold frames tend to look best on those whose skin has a warmer undertone. Warm undertones appear yellowish in fair/medium skin and can appear more peachy/golden in medium-dark/deep skin tones.

That being said, if you think you could rock gold frames, don’t let your skin’s undertone hold you back! You’re the best judge of what makes you feel confident and comfortable. 

Are gold frame glasses in style?

Gold rimmed glasses have been around for decades and are truly timeless. Their elegance keeps them in style year after year, with no signs of slowing down. Gold glasses are popular among celebrities, business men and women, gamers, and fashionistas alike. You can rest assured that gold metal frame glasses won’t be going out of style any time soon. 

Do gold frames look good?

Gold frames look great on a wide variety of people. Compared to acetate (plastic) frames, metal gold frame glasses tend to be more lightweight and low profile. They have an uncanny ability to enhance a person’s appearance, without looking too heavy or bold. 

What kind of gold glasses should you choose?

If you’re looking for a gold eyeglass frame that will not only enhance your style, but also filter harmful blue light, GUNNAR has you covered.

Blue light is widely used in modern screen technology to illuminate phones, laptops, computer screens, and TVs. Over time, excessive digital screen use and exposure to blue light can be harmful to your visual system and lead to symptoms like headaches, dry eyes, blurry vision, and disrupted sleep.

GUNNAR’s line of glasses are built with patented lens technology that filters out blue light, enhances focus, reduces dry eyes, minimizes glare, and reduces digital eye strain—all while making you look fantastic!

The glasses showcased below feature GUNNAR’s patented lens technology, are available with non-prescription or prescription lenses, and come in either Clear (blocks 35% blue light) or Amber (blocks 65% blue light) lens tint.
