What Are Cartier Glasses?

Cartier glasses are designer eyewear made by the French jeweler Cartier. Cartier makes glasses for both men and women, in both prescription and sunglasses styles. The company also offers a line of Precious Eyewear, eyeglass frames made of 24 carat gold and set with precious gems.

Cartier was founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier. The company remained with the Cartier family until 1967. Over the next century, it quickly rose to prominence as it received several lucrative and high-profile contracts from members of European royalty. In addition to jewelry, Cartier produces wristwatches, leather goods, fragrances, writing implements and home decor.
