Circular wire-rimmed glasses are one of the most iconic styles of retro metal frame glasses. Always an exceptional choice, this shape is available in a range of different colors. Is there anything that says ‘vintage charm’ like a set of gold wire frame glasses? We don’t think so.
Aviator Style Wire Eyeglass Frames
The narrow lines of aviator frames make them ideal for both eyeglasses and sunglasses. They also work as an eye-catching style feature. This style of frame includes a top bar, making them extra sturdy and unlikely to break. As wire eyeglass frames go, this is a solid choice.
Rectangular Wire Frame Glasses
Another sophisticated pick within this style, rectangular frames have a sleek profile that works well with both casual and formal outfits. These women and men’s wire-frame glasses are both comfortable and fashionable. See how you look in this style with our Try On feature, which you can access by clicking the Try On button at the top left of a frame page.
3 Things We Love About Wire Frame Glasses
Designed in Northern Italy in the 13th century, the very first eyeglasses were wire framed. Luckily our take on this metal frame style is probably more comfortable and sturdy than the early version, but it still holds the same vintage appeal.
The minimalist design of wire eyeglass frames is not only stylish, but also very comfortable. This is the lightest type of metal frame, and the addition of adjustable nose pads to some of our wire eyeglass frames makes them a joy to wear.
Tons of Lens Options
Like all of our frames, wire-rimmed glasses can be customized with many different lens options. High index lenses are great for keeping eyeglasses with strong prescriptions light, while progressive lenses are great for those who need multifocal vision correction.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
