Way over a hundred years ago Mr Boulgaris opened a little jewellers shop in a village in Greece. It doesn't sound like much of a start, but like all good things, it came to those who waited. Fast-forward a century and there were shops in New York, Geneve, Monte Carlo and Paris. Today there are over 300 shops all over the world.
If you think the brand is just about looking flash though, think again. They've given over 13,000,000 Euros to Save The Children. Back in the 1940s Constantino Bulgari and his wife hid Jewish refugees in their house when you could get yourself and your whole family shot for that.
Let's face it, this isn't a design house for the shy and retiring. Big gold shapes joined with uncompromising steel. Sunglasses that look as if they someone raided the bins round the back of a gold bullion shop. Shades with QUILTED DENIM ARMS. Honestly. Gloriously bonkers designs that say 'So?' because they can. And more to the point, because millions of people like mad art with a heart.
We aren't in Paris, Rome or New York. Chelmsford, in fact. But because of that, we can offer you miles of style from international brands at a sensible price, all supplied with a totally free 14-day return policy. And as we're called James Bryan Opticians, if you want those perfect sunglasses with a prescription lens we've got just one thing to say.
Of course. Which pair would you like?
