Gold & Wood, creating eyewear from material in their noble form
Gold & Wood is a gateway to a world of subtle luxury, where the quality and opulence of the materials and workmanship speak for themselves. Luxury is best expressed in a certain rare quality that gives you a daily elegance that is quite unique. By taking the time to hand craft the world’s most elegant Eyepieces™, made from the most exquisite natural materials, Gold & Wood strives to bring its owner back in touch with the magical world that surrounds us.
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™
To unite these rare materials is the process that awakens the magical element. This is what makes Gold & Wood unique. This magic is the secret ingredient of Gold & Wood.
Headquartered in Luxembourg and founded in 1995, Gold & Wood eyewear is known for its exceptional handcrafted designs and has dressed the faces of celebrities like Stevie Wonder, Angelina Jolie, Jamie Fox, Antonio Banderas and Robin Williams. Sexy and opulent, Gold & Wood glasses are distinct in their design as each set is intricately handmade in the Luxembourg factory by 40 craftsmen performing over a 100 different operations to finish one pair of these little sculptures. Made from the most rare and exotic woods and other unique elements such as precious diamonds, buffalo horn, titanium and carbon fibre, each set of Gold & Wood eyewear receives careful attention in its creation. Gold & Wood sets itself apart from this industry standard through its workmanship and in-house production process, proving that quality and inimitable attention are unparalleled values.
It is not just the time they spend and the incredible passion driving our employees that make Gold & Wood frames unique. It is also their uncommon expertise in using the most refined and desirable natural materials that gives the Collection its unique character. Unparalleled expertise has become an art whose secret – from design to production – is well kept.
Innovation and seduction are the heart of what preoccupies the Gold & Wood team of designers. That means giving that extra touch of soul to our eyewear by seeking news shapes, by inventing new combinations of materials and colours and by developing new techniques. Each set of frames is therefore designed in the same pursuit of comfort, luxury, elegance and purity – following a distinct philosophy merging the tradition of fine craftsmanship with industrial innovation. To better seduce and satisfy the customers of the planet, by enriching the Gold & Wood Collection with original models, in step with their times, such is the ambition of our designers.
The workmanship invested in temples, with materials as noble and natural as Finewood or Authentic Buffalo Horn, 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.
