Bulgari Le Gemme

Dan Deutsch has been describing eyewear as “jewelry to the face” for as long as we can remember.  The latest collection from Bulgari, Le Gemme, is simply that: eyewear forged from precious metals and gems.

Primavera, the ladies’ line, is characterized by five-point floral gemstone settings on the temples as well as metal browline accents. The floral gemstone settings range from combinations of agate+amethyst; to hematite, mother of pearl and amythyst+citrine; to brilliant multi-colored saphire ($12,000). For the discerning woman, Bulgari will customize the settings with her choice of Bulgari stones to create a one-of-a-kind piece valued at upwards of $80,000.

Zephyr, the Le Gemme line for men, is elegant: classic and squared aviator sunglasses with double bridges in titantium and both white and yellow 18KT gold. The masculine optical shape comes in both three-piece mount and full rim styles.
