Eye bling by David Yurman

I love David Yurman, but I must be really out of the loop because I had no idea that he made sunglasses. Some of them are blah, but some are actually quite glamorous (and quite expensive). []

The least expensive pair ($295) is the 'Cabled Oval Frame' glasses. They have a subtle cable detail and are available in black and tortoise. I like the nice, big oval shape. They're pretty underwhelming for the price though.

I think that my favorite pair is the 'Waverly' Cable sunglasses ($325 at Nordstrom). I love the oval frames and signature DY cable.

Another favorite is the super-cool 'Buckle' Aviator glasses ($425). These are available in gold or silver. It looks just like the iconic cable buckle bracelet, but on the temple instead of the wrist.

Now for the very pricey pairs. The 'Albion Geometric' sunglasses ($695) feature cushion-cut hematite stones outlined in sterling silver with smoke-gradient double lenses.

The 'Mosaic' sunglasses are a whopping $895 at Saks. I think they're very pretty but yowza! They have black onyx stones set in gold vermeil. I don't know why this price is so shocking, since many women pay thousands for handbags, and you wear sunglasses just as often - or at least I do. However, gemstones in your shades seems a bit too indulgent.
