Your glasses go through a lot throughout their lifetime, and sometimes extraordinary circumstances put eyewear to the ultimate test. We have collected two of the most remarkable true stories of disaster, care and quality eyewear design. These tales show what quality materials can endure.
through fire and flame
Working with resilient materials has its advantages. One of our customers learnt this when his house in Holland burned to the ground in 2020. Luckily, no one was injured, but his precious frame was caught in the flames. Since we make our precious frames in 18 karat solid gold, it was relatively unharmed, and through a cleaning process done by our in-house experts the glasses where as good as new.

Here, the glasses sat quietly on the ocean floor until days later where a diver retrieved them.

After a thorough cleaning the glasses were ready to safely return and be used once again.
