Choosing the Horn-Rimmed Glasses

In a market full of various designs and materials, we sometimes feel that something different, more unique is needed. But unique or different, doesn’t have to be having a look that makes it stand out immediately.

For such cases, a pair of horn-rimmed glasses are a great option to consider.

What are Horn-Rimmed glasses?

As the name itself says, the frames are made of horn, properly shaped and finished for the most avid user of glasses. The frames used the horn of buffalo origin and have a wonderful feeling and quality.

Horn-Rimmed eyeglasses are having either the front made of horn and the temples of metal or metal/plastic combination. Not unusual to find also the full horn frame, though those are usually fully custom made for size fitness depending on the eyeglass styles.
