What is gunmetal?

Gunmetal refers to a dark gray colored metal alloy often used in eyewear, jewelry, and watches. The color, created by plating with the precious metal ruthenium, falls between silver and black, making it very easy to wear. Our gunmetal color sunglasses are electroplated to protect the finish for lasting quality.

Why choose gunmetal sunglasses?

Gunmetal has been a popular color since the 19th century. It lends a luxurious look and feel to accessories like sunglasses and flatters all skin tones. Choose gunmetal frame sunglasses for something slightly unexpected, rather than silver or gold. AO’s gunmetal sunglasses look sleek paired with Calobar GreenTM or True-Color GrayTM lenses.
