Women’s Stainless Steel Eyeglasses
Baby boomers remember an era when getting eyeglasses was almost a shameful thing, a feeling memorialized for many in “The Brady Bunch” episode when Jan gets her first pair. With advances in technology and the introduction of couture designers, that feeling is no longer prevalent. Today, eyeglasses can be a fashion statement, with lines from top designers such as Gucci, Versace, Kate Spade and many more. Materials have come full circle as well, and women’s stainless steel eyeglasses have been transformed into appealing accessories that anyone can wear.
Stainless Steel Resists Corrosion
Stainless steel is an alloy, or combination of metals. Most metals used in eyeglass frames are actually alloys, with various other elements added in small amounts. Stainless steel is made up of at least 11 percent chromium and a pinch of carbon. The chromium is what gives steel its stainless aspect, or resistance to corrosion (rust), and that’s why it is used to make a women’s stainless steel eyeglasses frame. For those who live in more humid areas, stainless steel is a good choice for resisting the corrosive influence of moisture.
Additional Benefits of Stainless Steel
Heavy glasses can be uncomfortable, pressing into the wearer’s nose and making it sore. Women’s stainless steel glasses frames are lightweight, which adds to the wearer’s comfort. The strength of steel is well-known, and in frames, it serves to keep them from getting bent or broken, a particular benefit if you play sports. Many stainless steel frames are also free of nickel and hypoallergenic, which makes them a no-brainer for those with allergies. With all of the benefits the material offers, it’s easy to see why stainless steel is an excellent choice for a women’s metal eyeglasses frame.

Womens Stainless Steel Eyeglasses FAQs
Do Stainless Steel Glasses Look Good on Women?
If you think women’s stainless steel eyeglasses are thick, heavy and clunky, think again. While the first metal frames may have been all of the above, today’s styles are anything but. Made by designers at all levels of the fashion spectrum, stainless steel frames can be flirty, fun and flattering on women.
How Long Should a Pair of Stainless Steel Glasses Last?
Depending on the care they receive, stainless steel glasses can last a lifetime, or at least the frames can. You may need new lenses if your eyesight changes, but the frames won’t change. You may find, however, that styles change and you may want to update yours after a few years.
Why Should I Choose Stainless Steel Glasses?
Women’s stainless steel eyeglasses offer a wealth of benefits. They are lightweight, sit comfortably on your nose and resist corrosion. They also are strong and resist bending and breaking, returning to their original shape. If you have allergies, you can typically find choices that are also free of nickel.
Can I Put New Lenses in Old Frames?
It may seem this request is a simple one, but it isn’t. Frame styles change, and that includes the shape of the lens. Reshaping and re-glazing the lenses may not be cost-effective, and may not even be possible. Another risk in trying to fit new lenses to old frames is that the frames may be broken in the process.
How Do I Know if I Need Stronger Glasses?
If you are active and involved in sports, choosing stronger eyeglass frames is a good idea. There is always a chance of getting hit in the face with a ball or elbow, foot, or piece of equipment. Or, your glasses might be knocked off and land on a hard surface. Stronger frame can better absorb these impacts.
