We ran across across a stunning and luxurious pair of sunglasses by a jeweler we never heard of Mellerio. They are known as one of the oldest (1613) still in business today Jewelry companies in France. Apparently back in the 1950’s-1960’s they made solid gold eyewear. These vintage 18Kt gold and sapphire rimless sunglasses are signed MELLERIO-PARIS DEPOSE and available with the original box .
We do not know how much they are, but would estimate in the $100o’s of dollars. These are very rare and in fact could not find another one, although we did find a vintage ad circe 1952.
