Sunglasses

Sunglass hot since recently? Maybe not. In prehistoric times Inuit peoples wore flattened walrus ivory glasses to block harmful reflected rays of the sun. The earliest historical reference to sunglasses dates back to ancient China and Rome. The Roman emperor Nero watched gladiator fights through polished gems.

Did you know that in China, sunglasses were used in the 12th century? These sunglasses were made out of lenses that were flat panes of smoky quartz. They offered no corrective powers, nor they protect from harmful UV rays but did protect the eyes from glare.

Sunglasses we sell are all UV protected, and many have polarized lenses. Check out our prices!
