  • Swank were an American company that

    specialised in importing the best eyewear

    from all over the world and by stamping

    their name on the frame, became a brand.

    This fabulous jewelled pair appears in the

    only catalogue we have of theirs, from 1968.

    Here their frames are described as, "...Smart

    fashions for the smart set...the choice of

    discriminating....exquisite fashions, interpreted

    by the world's leading stylists....the elegant,

    the charming, the unusual - that's Swank!"


    Ours was called Bettina Jeweled and it is

    in the black in the larger size - check it out.

    The aurora borealis stones are set within brass

    studs and the face is wrapped to meet the arms

    with five barrel hinges. Something of the black

    swan about this elegant and rather special frame.
