The history of the brand Preciosa goes back to 1936. Even then, Preciosa characterized itself with the somewhat heavier, solid spectacles. Some techniques never age. The rivet hinges are still applied and are still as solid. The finishing polish is still done by a craftsman. The production of Preciosa spectacles requires 80 to 120 specialist actions. Those are done both manually by craftsmen and by modern computer operated machines. Every Preciosa pair of spectacles is crafted with a passion for design and quality.
The 2012 collection was largely inspired by the popular acetate spectacles from the 1950 and the 1960s. The success of the vintage collection is not only due to design. For Preciosa, we choose the best materials and parts. We have built a lasting relationship with most of our European suppliers.
We make our frames from cellulose-acetate plates. The processing of this material is considerably more complicated than using the shot molding methods, but it gives special patterns and color effects. The unique characteristics of acetate stand out well. The shades vary from classical black and Havana, to composed colors obtained from plates with several layers of color. This way, vintage also becomes modern and fashionable. The authentic, warm glow of well polished acetate spectacles and their expressive or subtle colors can be excellently combined with the latest fashion in the field of hair, make-up and clothing. The vintage collection from Preciosa offers an enormous choice of models and colors, for both men and women.
The different parts of the Preciosa spectacles, such as nose pads without softeners, and rubber ear tips, comply with high standards for quality, design, adjustability and wearer comfort.
Adjustment and maintenance
Preciosa spectacles are only available via the certified optician. Every wearer is different. Therefore, a good adjustment of the spectacles is essential. The optician knows how he can process the materials and adjust if necessary. He can also advise you about cleaning, so that the spectacles remain nice and strong for a long time. Opticians like to work with Preciosa spectacles. They are easy to glaze and have a good fit.
Service and guarantee
Preciosa spectacles are of a high quality and sustainable. We manually check all spectacles piece by piece before they leave the factory. Guarantee on possible production errors is self-evident. But also in the case of damage or defects that occur after many years, Preciosa is willing to help its customers. Most of Preciosa’s parts are permanently in stock. Both frames and parts are quickly available.
