BLACKFIN’S 24KT GOLD LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION TAKES LIGHTWEIGHT FRAMES TO ANOTHER LEVEL.
The lightweight feel of titanium is combined with 24-karat gold plate in this limited run of ophthalmic frames, resulting in a line that is both luxurious and functional.
In development for one year, the collection officially launched at Mido in February and then in the U.S. at Vision Expo East the following month. Composed of eight frames (each limited to a total run of only 499), models are constructed from a single piece of titanium and utilize Blackfin’s patented Nano-Plating technology, an exclusive treatment in which pure 24-karat gold particles are vaporized in a vacuum. This process causes sublimation, which enables the particles to be deposited onto the frames atom by atom.
“We wanted to be sure to offer an extremely unique treatment,” said Nicola Del Din, Blackfin CEO. “Thanks to Blackfin Nano-Plating technology, we can create a frame of exceptional beauty that is long-lasting and resistant to wear and tear.”
Every piece is designed and produced in Italy. Frames take a minimum of two months to produce and include a variety of shapes, including cat eye and round. Colorways are white, black, dark gray, dark blue and brown, each incorporating gold plate on temples, endpieces or fronts.
