Tortoise Shell Glasses For Men & Women
Tortoise shell glasses date far back to the mid 1800’s, making this color and material one of the oldest historically. Early European round tortoise shell glasses were generally round in shape and made of genuine Hawksbill turtle shell. Hawksbill turtle is amongst the most critically endangered species of animal due to the mass hunting that occurred in the 19th and early 20th century. In 1977 trade in genuine tortoise material was banned to help keep alive this endangered species. Many of the early American tortoise frames were made of bakelite, a type of plastic that was better for frames than genuine tortoise glasses. During the 1950’s they started manufacturing tortoise eyeglass frames out of acetate, a much easier and durable material to work with. No longer were round tortoise glasses the standard, as the cat eye shape took over. This all but guaranteed their success as one of the top colors for eyeglasses for Men and Women. Tortoiseshell frames predate glasses style and will therefore outlast it. Their unique patterns guarantee no uniformity as no 2 pairs are identical.

Silver Frame Glasses
The history of Silver Glasses is the history of eyeglasses. Silver is one of the oldest and most common colors, dating back a few hundred years. Silver framed glasses were made of various materials: The most popular in vintage frames: Common Steel – Steel is made by adding carbon to iron, creating a shiny silver material that is far stronger than silver and much more affordable. Sterling Silver – Named for the Pound Sterling used as British currency, this is the standard for most silver used in jewelry, silverware, and other silver items. It is 92.5% silver. Sterling silver eye glasses were pretty rare. German Silver – German silver was an alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc. It was affordable to make and looked almost the same as silver, but did not bend or tarnish as easily as Sterling silver would. Coin silver – Many cultures used coins made of silver or a silver alloy. When a person had more coins than they needed, it was common practice to take the coins to a silversmith who could melt them down and remake them as vases, silverware, and other objects of value, which could be transferred back into coins if the…

The first iteration of brown eyeglasses was in windsor glasses, the brown zylo covering found on some of those 1900s frames. This was not the color of the actual frame, those were generally gold or silver metal, but rather of the plastic covering that sometimes coated these round frames.

Two Tone Glasses For Men & Women
Two Tone Glasses frames date back to the 1850s in their first iteration, and to the 1950s in the version more common today. Simply put, these are eyeglass frames made of two different colors. The first instances were in straight temple glasses around the civil war era. These frames were generally silver in color, but sometimes the bridge was gold colored. This occurred with cable temple glasses as well, they sometimes had silver frames with a gold bridge. The more modern and popular version of two tone glasses came to fame in the 1950s and 1960s after the use of plastic and acetate for eyeglasses became widespread. With plastic frames the manufacturers had the ability to fade seamlessly from one color to the next, without the need for soldering. Fade Glasses Fade glasses in the 1950s generally started off on top as black or brown, and slowly faded into clear on the bottom. This in a sense was mimicking the concept of browline eyeglasses which had preceded these two tone glasses, as the look of black fade or brown fade frames which were clear on the bottom could had similarities to browline glasses with the darker brow piece on top…
Clear Frame Glasses For Men & Women
Clear glasses frames date surprisingly far back, approximately 100 years. Prior to the 1950s plastic had not yet been widespread and its use in eyewear was uncommon.

These transparent frames were generally round or P3 Panto shape and were usually very narrow, they were similar in style to early tortoiseshell glasses. Clear eyeglass frames became increasingly popular in the 1950s with various trendy Women’s Glasses, mainly cateye frames.

While early plastic frames were generally black, brown or tortoiseshell color, there were a small minority of green color glasses, generally round in shape. The real beginning of green glasses is in the 1950’s. With the new common use of plastic after the war years came the ability to manufacture eyeglass frames in all colors. Green Cat Eye Glasses Since during that era mens glasses were generally more conservative colors such as black and tortoise, the natural result was the the first use of the color green in that era was for green cat eye glasses. Generally more of a darker olive green, these cat eye frames were not one of the more popular colors of that decade but that is definitely where they got their start.

Orange Glasses For Men & Women
Orange glasses are one of the newest colors in the world of eyeglass frames. In the fifties and sixties there were many rust colored cat eye frames made, but they lacked the brightness and color found in orange frames today, they were closer to a brown color. One of the first bright orange glasses frames to be manufactured was a pair of oversized glasses by Pathway Optical called Opticolor Neon. This style was highly representative of 1980s glasses. “My girlfriend thinks I look ridiculous in them,” he said. But Mr. Nicoletti, a 30-year-old hospitality consultant in Denver, insists that the glasses, which can block certain wavelengths of light emitted by electronic screens, make it easier to sleep. Orange Tinted Glasses Many people find that orange tinted glasses can help reduce the glare from digital screens, a form of blue light blocking glasses. Some studies have shown that blue light inhibits the body’s ability to produce melatonin, the hormone that controls how people fall asleep. The best solution for this is avoiding brightly lit electronics before going to sleep. However, given the digital world we live in today it is becoming harder to disconnect every passing day. Studies have shown that…

Yellow Glasses For Men & Women
The earliest form of yellow glasses were likely yellow zylo rim covers for round windsor glasses. These round frames were popular late 19th century glasses and through the early twentieth century. Windsor glasses were round and made of gold or silver color. They were sometimes coated with zyl, an early plastic. This coating was usually brown or black but sometimes tortoise, and on the rarer occasion, yellow. The next time yellow was used historically was in industrial goggles in the early 1900s. These were made of zyl and sometimes had a metal bridge. They were used as protective gear to protect the eyes while doing various hazardous activities. Yellow Tinted glasses Historically one of the earliest colors of sunglass lenses has been yellow. Many antique eye glasses from the late 19th century have yellow tinted lenses. The thought process at the time was that yellow offered the best protection against UV rays.
