ROLLED GOLD – TWENTY TIMES THICKER

All Algha for Cubitts frames consist of a wire with a monel core, and 10 microns of 18kt gold wrapped around it — about 20 times the thickness of standard plating. The hypoallergenic and corrosion-resistant properties of gold give our Classic frames the potential to last a lifetime. The combination frames use high quality Italian acetate for the fronts, and our crafted rolled gold for the temples.
