The Ray-Ban black chrome finish is infused into the metal, not like an enamel that will chip and wear off, but the stars of the show are obviously the B&L G-31 mirrored lenses. Tell Me More

VS1842: Vintage Ray-Ban Orbs Square sunglasses feature a beautiful gold plated frame in the iconic Ray-Ban Orbs Square style, but the stars of the show are the very are Bausch & Lomb gold mirror lenses.
