Versatile yet splashy, tortoise shell glasses have long been a symbol of refined sophistication
and style. These glasses feature a distinct pattern in marbled shades of brown to mimic the
ones that were originally crafted from actual tortoise shells or horns. But don’t worry — no
animals were harmed in the marking of our horn-rimmed glasses! These bold beauties are
made from durable, high-quality celluloid acetate so they perfectly showcase this classic pattern
yet are tough enough for your everyday life.
If you dream of a pair of signature horn rim glasses featuring that desirable brown swirled
pattern, you’ve come to the right place. As an expert in vintage-inspired eyewear, Vint & York
specializes in recreating stunning specs from the past and repurposing them into fresh, modern
designs. Grab a pair of tortoise glasses from our selection in a contemporary round or oversized
silhouette to help play into this old-school aesthetic. Prefer to make a massive splash? We’ve
got colorful horn-rim glasses too that take a page from the classic handbook but give it a little
twist at the same time.
