As an homage to craft and innovation, the GRAND DANOIS collection presents a selection of titanium styles carefully plated in precious metals. A refined series of optical frames embodying our dedication to innovation and state-of-the-art craftsmanship, elegantly fused with our design philosophy of understated, intelligent quality. This year’s launches sees the translation of six styles from our contemporary IMAGINARY LINES collection. Our thinnest titanium collection to date, for the first time ever presented in gold, ruthenium, and palladium.

ABOUT THE PLATING

Only precious metals are used in the plating process of the GRAND DANOIS collection. The premium finish is created through a combination of meticulous hand polishing and sandblasting of the raw titanium frames, that are then subsequently treated with multiple layers of precious metal plating. The plating process is created when an electronic current is passed through a plating solution, causing the precious metals to bond to the titanium frames and form a thin and highly durable precious coating.

GOLD

LUNA / MAT LUNA / ROSE GOLD

For centuries, gold has been a highly sought-after rare metal symbolising wealth and prosperity. The frames in the GRAND DANOIS collection featuring a luna, mat luna or rose gold finish have a base layer with 2.5 microns of 24K gold and a top layer of 0.5 microns of 18K gold.

palladium

PALLADIUM

PALLADIUM

Palladium is one of the most popular metals to be alloyed with gold to produce white gold. Due to its hypo-allergenic properties it enables the steel white color to endure over a long time. The frames in the GRAND DANOIS collection featuring a palladium finish have a base layer of 2.5 microns of 24K gold and a top layer with 0.5 microns of palladium.

RUTHENIUM

PENTA / MAT PENTA GREY

Ruthenium is considered an exceptionally rare transition metal belonging to the platinum family and often used to enhance the wear-resistance of metals. The frames in the GRAND DANOIS collection featuring a penta or mat penta grey finish have a base layer of 2.9 microns of 24K gold and a top layer with 0.1 microns of ruthenium.

MAT HAVANA

PRECIOUS PATTERN FOIL

The mat havana pattern is applied to the eye-rim of the frames through a process called “foil transfer”. Here, a tortoise pattern is first applied to a sheet of foil during a special printing method. The sheet of foil is then wrapped around the surface of the eye-rim by hand before the frame is heated to allow the pattern to detach from the foil and finally be transferred onto the surface of the frame.

*What is a precious metal?

A precious metal is a rare, naturally occurring metallic chemical element of high economic value, such as gold, silver, and platinum. The platinum group metals include palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, osmium, and iridium.

 

**How big is a micron?

1mm is equal to 1000 microns. To set that into perspective: a micron equivales 1/8th the size of a human hair.
