I think that the point of these glasses is not for everyday use but to be a curiosity.i think some of them are truly beautiful.
I love the ones with the Emerald lenses. I once visited to Malachite room in the palace in St Petersburg and it reminds me of mont blanc used to do the most magnificent malachite fountain pen.These things are unique and special.they are works of art. A thing of beauty and the digital era we live in it is easy to forget that quality matters.

Exactly what I think. The only pair that somewhat appealed to me was the canary pair, and they arent worth 65k. Why spend thousands on a pair when you can get a good pair for 20, and a pair nicer than those for 100-300 dollars anyway? It just doest make sense, and is another example of people slapping diamonds on things and asking thousands of dollars.

My thoughts exactly. I found a lot of these to be unappealing, in other words, ugly. Of course, that is just my opinion, they are just not my style, no matter the price. And as you said, how can they not be expensive when they have hundreds of diamonds on them. I am happy with my $25 sunglasses, lol.

They're expensive but not stylish. Besides, I find it too convenient to make things expensive by simply encrusting objects with diamonds. How else can it not be expensive?
