Why choose our gold sunglasses?

Gold framed sunglasses are a true classic for men and women. We handcraft all of our sunglasses in our US factory, using the finest materials from around the globe. Our frames are plated in real 23k gold and electrocoated for lasting style. As with all American Optical sunglasses, optics are as important as style. AOSkymaster glass or AOLite nylon lenses are chromatically tuned to complement our gold sunglasses. All lenses feature 100% UV protection, hard coating to resist scratches, backside anti-reflective coating to minimize glare, and an oleophobic coating to prevent smudges. Upgrade any style to gold polarized sunglasses easily.
