$45,000 Automotive Shades

Glam Up with the Bentley x Estede Sunglasses

— September 1, 2011 — Art & Design
If there were ever a pair of glasses that would set you back greatly in terms of finances (but be totally worth it), it's got to be the Bentley x Estede Sunglasses.

The Bentley x Estede Sunglasses will set costumers back a staggering $45,000. Why? It's because these are handcrafted in Germany and are equipped with polarized lenses from Zeiss -- and maybe the fact that they are made with gold frames. The side of the arms shows off the Bentley 'B' logo. The pieces are also finished in hand-polished enamel coating complete with engraved surfaces just to show how much work was put into each of the frames. All are made to order and are limited to 100 pieces with each individually numbered. These are available in white gold, rose gold, and platinum.
