Eyewear company TD Tom Davies has produced the first-ever sunglasses to feature rhodium coated lenses.

Having created 24k gold lenses in an 18k gold aviator frame last year, the British brand is now the first to incorporate rhodium lenses into the design, according to the company.

Rhodium lenses are scratch, water, fingerprint and tarnish resistant.

Speaking about the frame, designer Tom Davies said: “I am so excited to be the first designer to launch this exclusive product. I think these are my favourite sunglasses that I have created.”

The frames will be showcased at Vision Expo East, which opens in New York tomorrow (15 March).
