Each pair requires 14 hours of their skilled craftsman’s time to handmake and these swag sunglasses are limited to 100 glasses per model yearly. Meticulously crafted with German steel core wire for sturdiness, Royal Aquamarine makes use high quality Italian acetate which is famed for its stain-resistant properties and complete UVA and UVB protection.

Inspired by vintage styles, Royal Aquamarine hopes to bring out the sense of timelessness in their classic models. This is evident in its choice of their sunglass model names like Rockerfeller, DuPont, Vanderbilt and McQueen
