The recipe for an elegant pair of glasses: combine two arms, two lenses and a nose bridge and leave the rim behind. Rimless glasses are the first choice for all those who want a chic and professional look. With these glasses, it will be clear that you mean business. The lack of rim around the lenses means they do not dominate the face but create a rather neutral image. Instead, the arms of the glasses and the nose bridge stand out, which, especially in shiny materials such as gold and silver, makes the glasses appear even more elegant altogether. They are particularly well suited to people with smaller facial features that will not be overpowered by a subtle frame, unlike glasses with thick frames, which can detract attention away from facial features.
Another advantage of frameless glasses is that they are lightweight. Particularly in everyday working life, where, for many professions, wearing glasses is a must, it is much more comfortable to wear light glasses. This means you can get through even the longest working day without an unpleasant feeling of pressure on the bridge of the nose.

The world record for lightweight glasses is held by the Austrian brand Silhouette with its titanium spectacles. Their minimalist character paired with innovative materials makes Silhouette glasses not only very popular accessories, but also winners in terms of comfort. In order to offer unique designs despite being minimalist and lightweight, the Austrian manufacturers use impressive colour combinations on the arms. A beautiful example is the Silhouette Inspire in Gold/Scarlet.
The Swiss luxury brand Chopard and its eyewear collection are no less sensational. Maximum precision and quality can be expected from the Swiss, who are known above all for their watches. Chopard also makes use of the arms of its rimless glasses to position itself as a premium brand. They are decorated with glittering gems and jewels, which makes their glasses even more elegant and luxurious. For this reason, the arms of many Chopard glasses and sunglasses are like the ornate calling card among glasses.
A brand from the same segment that has also achieved international fame with its jewellery is Bvlgari. The Italian brand, known for its fine sense of design, works with the same philosophy as its Geneva-based competitors. They also focus on the sides of the glasses. Seen from the front, the rimless glasses from Bvlgari appear subtle and reserved, but Bvlgari is not afraid to show what the jewellery manufacturer can do on the temples. Emerald-green gemstones are embedded in high-contrast temples in rose gold and black. With this pair of glasses, you don’t need to wear any other jewellery.
Rimless eyewear is the perfect all-rounder – it is elegant, serious-looking and comfortable. It’s certainly worthwhile digging deeper into your pockets for these optical all-rounders. However, rimless spectacles don’t always have to be covered in jewels. If you don’t want to wear a status symbol on your face, you will find models by cheaper brands in our range of rimless glasses starting at just 35 euros.
