Horn-rimmed glasses have been around for nearly as long as eyeglasses themselves. Originally made of genuine animal horn or tortoiseshell, these stylish frames are now made from animal-free materials. Explore our collection of horn-rimmed glasses for men and women to find classic and contemporary silhouettes in a variety of shapes and colors.
At one time the term 'horn-rimmed' referred to the material in the frames, but now refers to their design elements, including color or pattern. Horn-rimmed eyeglasses traditionally featured a thick-rimmed browline, in contrast with the contemporary thin-rimmed or rimless metal frames of the day. This distinctive feature made them stand out from the 'barely-there' look of other eyewear styles.
Today, you'll find horn-rimmed eyeglasses in all sizes and colors, and in varying degrees of thickness. You'll also find 'hybrid' styles that sport a combination of thin metal rims with a thick browline; the Ray-Ban RX5154 showcases the brand's iconic Clubmaster shape in mixed-material horn-rimmed frames, available in a variety of on-trend colors.
