Before Gold & Wood products become Eyepieces, they are the noble materials in their raw form: The Gold, The Wood and The Buffalo horn. Only by the patient hand craftsmanship in the Gold & Wood atelier do these materials transform into Eyepieces.
The workmanship is an art that many envy, and some try to imitate, but none has succeeded in matching. Entirely handcrafted with traditional artistry in our own workshops, they are the result of the talent and dexterity of seasoned craftsmen. Apart from this skill, their workmanship is inspected at each stage in the production process – from shape cutting, varnish sanding to perfect the comfort of the temples, right through to the polishing that shows the material in all its splendour. The work combines delicacy and strength in perfect balance, when the fronts and other metal parts as well as the lenses are added. The metal parts are made from high-quality alloys and the fronts are carefully machined according to a design developed to create the most harmonious frames.
Never shy of receiving awards, Gold & Wood Eyepieces have been awarded for the best Prom dress under 100 craftsmanship, design and lifestyle creation in Courchevel this year. No wonder many famous celebrities and successful politicians are using them!
