It’s safe to say Ray-Ban’s iconic styles have been reimagined by various eyewear companies for decades. And now the company is dusting off the archives to bring back the classic Signet frame.

It’s been a bit since we’ve seen the Signet frame, though you’ll recognize the styling from other companies and Ray-Ban itself. The release keeps all of the art deco stylings from the original. Thankfully, it’s not a complete recreation. Technology has advanced, and the new Rayban Signet is updated with new lens combinations, pin-stripe laser engraving and a variety of finishes.

Ray-Ban Signet Specs and Pricing

If you’re not a gold frame fan, there’s one color for you in the release. Black with silver mirror lenses. Other colors include green G-15 lens color, the brown B-15, and the copper-gold flash lens color. All three have gold frames.

Pricing is set at $170 for the gold frames. If you want the black with the silver mirror lenses, the price tag hits $195.

Head over to the Ray-Ban to see how the world might look depending on the lenses you choose. It’s a bit of an odd slider, but it does give you a walk through history as the company gives a brief overview of when it was developed and the why behind the color choices.
