Specifications

Horn is a natural material made of keratin. Entirely hand carved, our frames are hypoallergenic. Indian water buffalo horns which we use, are raised on farms for meat consumption. A health certificate is issued for all our horn importations.

The metal used is Monel, a category of nickel silver combining a range of precious alloys. It has a very good resistance to corrosion and is flexible enough to be adjustable.

In 1995 Maurice Léonard, founder and muse, created Gold & Wood and set up his handcrafted factory in a small magical city called Hosingen, located in Luxembourg.

At the heart of the workshop, a true laboratory of creation and innovation, safe and precise gestures made exclusively by hand, perpetuate a know-how that our Master Craftsmen have passed on for decades. Wood species are carefully selected according to their nobility, their rarity and the emotion they inspire. The different wood veneers are then shaped and delicately plated on thin aluminum strips.

From the sketch to the frame, dozens of technical steps will follow each other to give life to each eyepiece.Time is a key ingredient in the equation of the manufacture, a creation that can mobilize our craftsmen for more than 6 months.
