From goldsmith to optical art, Vita Eyewear creates glasses with materials used in jewelry
Vita Eyewear was born in April 2021 from the passion for craftsmanship and the knowledge developed in a family goldsmith workshop based in Rome, where for thirty years Vita Goldsmith masters have been making jewelry with care and attention to details. Now the brand has created a collection of glasses with materials used every day in jewelry: gold and silver. The frames are entirely handmade respecting the classic canons of goldsmith and optical art, with a touch of modernity and regularity to the shapes. All of them are unique pieces and could be adapted to every face through customizations made by the expert hands of Vita artisans. The tailor-made process requires 15 days, the minimum time needed to develop the perfect frame for the customer needs.
The C-1, named after Vita Eyewear co-founder Clemente Vita, has a very classic and retro shape and it’s entirely realized in 925 silver and gold. The small rings are joined by a bridge of 27 millimeters, possibly adapted for a perfect fitting. The lenses are encased in the small rings thanks to half hinges. They can be available in various colors and shades and entirely handmade in a laboratory in Rome. The brand is currently working on a new model expected to be be released in summer 2022. It will feature more rigid shapes than the C-1 in order to give customers a different style choice.
