The Ray-Ban Aviator silhouette first developed for the US Army Air Corps in the 1930s is flying higher than ever—at least with regard to the price of a new solid gold special edition.
In celebration of ubiquitous shades’ 84th anniversary, the Luxottica-owned luxury eyewear maker is releasing just 84 examples of Aviators with solid 18-carat yellow gold frames. They’re priced at a truly eye-watering $3,454 each—over 20 times what one would pay to cop the classic Aviators for $161.
The precious metal construction is paired with the classic polarized G-15 lenses in green. A couple other exclusive details include special leather packaging and a serialized number on the inside of the temple.
If you’ve got a down payment-sized hole in your pocket to flex on some famous faces, grab a pair before they’re sold out.
