Esther Design Details
With curvy lines and a metal browline that tapers into its lenses, these eyeglasses showcase a seamless silhouette. What sets Esther apart from other eyeglasses are its simple lines, rounded corners, and precisely cut etchings. With a vintage-inspired, uplifted brow rim, these glasses provide an intriguing detail while lining your brows. The marked browline brings angular interest, while the groomed bottom highlights your cheekbones, adding balance to your graceful features. With a clear, no rim bottom that visually lightens and balances out the boldness of the browline, the results are crisp edges and an overall feeling of lightness. The sleek temple arms extend flawlessly behind your ears. The long and slender temple tips give the design a boost of style. The traditional cutout details and temple bands give it a nautical charm, while the acetate-colored tips pull out its sparkle. Whether you’re out for a day in the park or going to the office, Esther will do the trick.
The frames are made using custom cellulose acetate and stainless steel. Cellulose Acetate is a plant-based and biodegradable material. Acetate frames are very flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. Acetate also helps preserve the style, colors, and patterns of Esther over time. The temple tips are cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity. Stainless steel glasses are lightweight and robust, making them more resilient than plastic frames. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges enhance the durability of the frames. Polycarbonate, an impact-resistant material, keeps the lenses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. The lenses are treated with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings that enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
Esther Price and Availability of Colors
Whether you’re grabbing a latte at the local coffee shop or walking back from City Hall, Esther comes in two brilliant colors: Brushed Navy and Rose Gold that will match your wardrobe. At a price tag of $145, you can buy these glasses without breaking the bank.
Brushed Navy is a deep, intense blue shade that appears to have textured brush strokes. Associated with police uniforms, it displays an air of authority and power. Bold tones of Brushed Navy cover the metal rims of the frame, while the temple tips are mottled with warm tortoiseshell flecks that add a little shine and texture to that dazzling look of yours. What makes the eyewear extra-cool is the blend of dark navy acetate and the contrasting temple tips that will surely turn heads. Esther in Brushed Navy looks great with every outfit, be it jeans and tees, dresses, or blazers.
Pure gold and copper together give Rose Gold its hue. It has a pink gold shade with undertones of yellow. This color is tonal enough to complement the contours of your face while adding a touch of blush. Smooth and light, Rose Gold represents passion and refinement. The feminine hues of Rose Gold cover the metal rims of the frame, while the temple tips are freckled with classic tortoiseshells. This blissful and romantic connotation gives these eyeglasses a vintage appeal. With a tranquil color combination of classic tortoise and rose gold with sleek metal detailing, Esther in Rose Gold is a perfect accessory for any occasion.
