Gold & Wood believes that luxury is best expressed through a certain style, a certain talent, and a certain rare quality that gives you a unique elegance.
It’s no surprise then that the luxury Eyepiece brand based in Luxembourg finds itself at the heart of class. As manufacturers of eyeglasses and sunglasses, their Eyepieces are uniquely styled and handcrafted by exceptionally talented designers using some of the rarest materials on Earth.
Style is subjective, but the workmanship, elegance, and purity that defines the production process for Gold & Wood, is not. Each step of the process – from shape cutting to varnish sanding to final polishing – is delicately inspected to ensure perfection. Along the way, only the finest materials are used, including Buffalo horn, diamond, gold, and unique and beautiful woods. These materials, coupled with the unparalleled craftsmanship and attention to detail, make these Eyepieces truly magical.
All class and elegance aside, Gold & Wood comes from humble beginnings. Maurice Leonard was always captivated by the beauty of fine woods, so in 1995, he started a small-time eyewear company with about ten employees. Leonard’s goal was simple: to create refined products for people with an appreciation of beautiful objects.
As Gold & Wood has grown, so too has their design, production, and sustainability practices. Because they use such precious materials, Gold & Wood takes the most careful of steps to ensure that their resources are taken from protected and certified sources. The Ministry for the Environment in Luxembourg, the country where these beautiful Eyepieces are crafted, has publicly recognized Gold & Wood’s sustainability efforts.
Seventeen years and two Silmo d’Or awards later, Leonard’s passion has grown into a global manufacturer synonymous with luxury. But owning a pair of Gold & Wood Eyepieces is much more than simply choosing which glasses look best with your suit or dress. There is a sense of timelessness associated with each and every Eyepiece. Capturing the magic in beauty and style and adding it to the old soul within each pair, Gold & Wood presents not just a luxurious product, but also a luxurious lifestyle.
This elegance and uniqueness help Gold & Wood to transcend standard luxury eyewear. It is for this reason that Gold & Wood doesn’t simply create glasses or eyewear, but rather, Eyepieces. Like an elegant piece of art worthy of admiration and wonder, Gold & Wood is above and beyond the normal realm of luxury.
Gold & Wood’s reputation for elegance is also recognized by celebrities and business titans alike, including Academy Award-winning actor Robin Williams, 22-time Grammy winner Stevie Wonder, and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
The products vary in price, ranging from ±$500 to $2,000. Additionally, Gold & Wood features a line of jewelry with prices as high as $55,000 – if you find yourself with more money than you know what to do with.
