Established in 1988, Chrome Hearts began by producing leather riding gear for friends and their extended families. Since then, the company has grown into an international luxury lifestyle company, integrating classic design with the highest standards for quality and craftsmanship. Goods range from distinctive hand-made jewelry in sterling silver, gemstones, platinum and 22K gold; furniture made from exotic woods; and clothing made from the finest leathers and fabrics.
Chrome Hearts is appreciated by those who can recognize and appreciate the exquisite details incorporated in each unique piece. This quality craftsmanship has not gone unnoticed—the company received the prestigious CFDA award for “Accessories Designer of the Year” in 1995.
In keeping with the Chrome Hearts tradition, the eyewear collection is, without a doubt, one of the most innovative collections in fashion eyewear ever released. The standard process for developing a new eyewear collection typically requires six to seven months. The first Chrome Hearts eyewear collection was released in 2002 after over 19 months of intensive design and research. No detail or cost was spared in the development of the collection. The acutely detailed tooling required to produce each piece, in addition to the use of luxurious and rare materials, makes the Chrome Hearts collection one of the most expensive eyewear collections ever produced.
Nothing but the greatest care is taken when selecting materials to ensure that the eyewear is a clearly defined extension of the Chrome Hearts design/brand philosophy. Exotic woods, fine leathers, precious stones and sterling silver decorations are combined with the latest innovations in optical technology, metallurgy, and laser engraving to produce a product worthy of the Chrome Hearts name.
For eyewear of this caliber, it is only appropriate that each case is constructed of the same high quality leather used in all Chrome Hearts leather products.
