"Diamond Harlot" by Oliver Peoples
From the Oliver Peoples 2008 Resort Spring Collection:
Black/Gold/Diamonds with Gradient
Sensationally sexy, 70's-inspired oversized sunglass hand-crafted in round, contoured plastic and metal accents. Available in a variety of OP-exclusive colors. Oliver Peoples logo plaque discreetly laminated at temple end. 6-base lens curve and 100% UV protection. Set in 10g total weight of gold, the exclusive frame is available in three color ways; Black with 18k Yellow Gold, Ivory Shell with 14k Rose Gold, and Storm Grey with 18k White Gold and features 1.5 carats of brilliant, round cut, natural white diamonds."
We think this is one of the most successful takes on "Breakfast at Tiffany" sunglasses we've seen in a while. Bold yet elegant, with a definite touch of luxury in its use of 18/14k gold and 1.5 carats of actual diamonds!
Stick with the black colorway though, the model looses a little bit of its appeal with the ivory and storm grey options.
