What a gem: A sneak peek at a pair of sunglasses from Oscar de la Renta's collaboration with Linda Farrow.

Ever thought you would covet a pair of shades made from 12,000-year-old woolly mammoth tusk?

No, this isn’t a Halloween-related post, though we do love a good Wilma Flintstone costume. Oscar de la Renta has teamed up with Linda Farrow, purveyor of luxury eyewear, on a line of sunglasses—including the aforementioned tusk frames, hand-carved with a rose motif.

Other styles in the nine-piece collection have accents of precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, as well as African and white jade, coral, mother of pearl, snakeskin jasper, tiger's eye, agate, petrified wood, red aventurine, and hematite, Women’s Wear Daily reports.

And with parts this precious, they don’t come cheap: The glasses will retail for $500 to $1,000, beginning in January, at Oscar de la Renta’s boutiques, e-commerce site as well as select specialty stores.

In related news, Oscar de la Renta is also planning to debut a line of color cosmetics.
