Women's Frame Materials: Metal

Women's metal eyeglasses frames are traditionally not the go-to style for most women, due to the allure of the softer lines and vibrant colors of plastic frames. But as the years pass along, metal frames are becoming more and more interesting to women due to the increase in colors, shapes, and configurations of metal frames. Women like the occasional Swarovski crystal mounted on the frame corners of metal frames, which is much more rare than other materials. Metal frames also tend to be lighter and smaller which makes it more comfortable and wearable, especially with the stronger prescriptions. 


Silhouette Metals

Silhouette made huge inroads into women's hearts when they introduced the Minimal Arts collection around the turn of the century. These are among the thinnest and lightest metal frames available, with just two slender titanium temples on the sides and a small nosepiece in the middle.

Metal frames come in many different configurations – monel, titanium, alpaca, even aluminum – but by far the most popular type of metal eyeglasses is the rimless style. Rimless metal frames reveal the most of your face, and let’s the world see your beauty. Most politicians and movie stars wear rimless frames; especially politicians because they don’t want people to think they are hiding something.


Strength of Metal Frames

Metal frames also have the advantage of being a bit sturdier that plastic. Moms like that because when you child rips the glasses off your face 20 times a day, the metal ones tend to last a bit longer than the plastics.
