Inspired by Renaissance art.

What better way to shield your eyes from the world than with a pair of extravagant, Italian-made specs, complete with precious gems?

Courtesy of luxury eyewear brand Francis De Lara, you can now make laying by the pool that much extra with these gold heart-shaped sunnies, priced at a mere $26,000.

Arriving in gold-plated sterling silver (’cause not even $26K gets you real gold), these particular frames feature kunzite, red garnet and orange garnet stones, designed to resemble the drop of blood motif from Renaissance art. The unique pair took around 300 hours to create by hand, which explains the price tag.

As part of the brand’s My Bleeding Heart collection, the sunglasses are truly one of a kind, with only one pair available.

The single pair of frames is available exclusively at MATCHESFASHION.COM, and is still up for grabs.
