More than a week ago we’ve compiled a list of unique sunglasses, and we thought: why not offer our public a collection of unique eyeglasses as well? Also known as spectacles or specs, this accessory, unlike sunglasses who are mostly used as a fashion extension, is necessary. However, this doesn’t mean they have to look bulky, unless you like it that way, so the creative eyeglasses industry is working hard on designing superb eyeglasses frames. The first pair of eyeglasses was created in Italy around 1286. It was initially believed that Salvino D’Armate of Florence invented them, but later this proved to be a false information. In addition, rumors that Marco Polo stumbled upon eyeglasses while traveling to China in the 13th century were persistent, but there are no recorded documents proving so. As a mater of fact, the earliest mentions of eyeglasses in China only appear in the 15th century. Enjoy our list and, if you find this list useful, do rate us.
