If there is one sports personality who likes making a ‘fashion statement,’ it is Cristiano Ronaldo, the famed international footballer. He is labelled with various tags, such as trendy, casual, elegant, stylish, classy —he stands out in a crowd. It is evident that he chooses his apparel and the accessories that suit his personality, including sunglasses, with great care. They are all ‘branded’ items.
Take the kind of sunglasses that Cristiano Ronaldo wears, for instance. A couple of years ago, the media spotted him wearing Dolce & Gabbana Gold Edition sunglasses, worth $580. The price may make one’s head reel, but this pair of glasses with its aviator design and engraved logo is literally worth its weight in gold; the plating is 18 carat gold. The company offers a certificate of authenticity, to prove that the metals used are genuine. Additionally, the wearer is able to enjoy dual benefits in the form of prescription eyeglasses and protective sunglasses. The lenses are polarized. The sunglasses may be stored in an elegant leather case with separate drawers for placing the cleaning cloth.
Take for example the Gucci 1827s sunglasses. Great looking sunglasses with a classic but super design chic look.
This is not the only brand that Cristiano Ronaldo adores; he has shown a fondness for the Ray Ban brand too. Ray Ban sunglasses may not be as expensive as the D&G brand, but they are no less elegant and chic. That is why they are so popular across the world. Ronaldo seems to favor particularly the titanium-plated, aviator sunglasses with polarized lenses. Other styles are available too, each one priced differently. In case of damage to the lenses or the frame, replacements are easily available.
Chrome Hearts sunglasses are marvelous for long-term wear; they are ideal for driving, flying and energetic outdoor activities. The prices range from cheap to highly expensive. Cristiano Ronaldo likes the extravagantly priced pair with its radical design and splendid quality. The price ranges between $800 and $1000. A unique kind of technology goes into creating the temples on the frame. Thin veneers of ebony wood are glued together; there are seven in total. Then, six layers are coated with hypoallergenic varnish, resulting in a glossy shine. These sunglasses have been designed to attract attention.
Tom Ford sunglasses are as good as the other brands. They seem to be luxury items designed only for celebrities like Cristiano Ronaldo, but suitable for anyone desiring to make a distinctive ‘style’ statement. Although expensive, they offer good value for money. The designs are attractive, even going so far as to combine prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. The frames are generally black or brown in color, but the lenses are diversely shaped, perfectly customized to suit customers’ needs. Variety is indeed the spice of life, as demonstrated by Cristiano Ronaldo’s choice of sunglasses.
