How Rossellini Perfected the Design

Great American Eyewear's Designer, artist, Bruno Rossellini, asked more than 250 people to test various versions of his new JFK sunglasses design.

Great American Eyewear testers wore Rossellini's new JFK sunglasses as they walked at the seashore, strolled or stood in line at Disneyland and other amusement parks, hiked on desert trails, and shopped on Rodeo Drive.

Rossellini gave each person a pair of Great American Eyewear's JFK Tortoise sunglasses and asked them to tell him everything they experienced while wearing his new design.

He wanted to know how the new sunglasses felt. He also wanted to perfect the design to ensure that 98% of all JFK Sunglasses wearers looked great in them!

The result:

  1. Bruno Rossellini's designs turned a lot of heads.
  2. Everyone wanted to see, touch and experience the new sunglasses with the powerful piece of history owned by JFK!
  3. The stunningly designed frame, expensive, high-end polarized lenses and the exquisite JFK property permanently secured inside the right temple . . . .(inside a solid18 Karat gold and crystal sapphire . . .displaying a clearly visible piece of JFK's own white Oxford dress shirt) . . . greatly impressed both the wears and observers. 
  4. Many said their new sunglasses made them feel powerful.
  5. Many "testers" actually bought Great American Eyewear's new JFK design after wearing them.
  6. Rossellini was amazed when buyers told him,  "This new design will be my favorite!"
  7. And  . . . many told him that wearing the JFK sunglasses was a new and improved experience.
  8. The "testers" told him that they loved the beautiful fine jewelry -- especially when it sparkled under different kinds of lights and in the sunshine.
  9. Rossellini discovered that his new design stood out in a crowd!

Imagine Making Your Best Vacation Memories . . . Wearing JFK Sunglasses

  • Customers wanted to learn more about how Great American Eyewear's Co-founder, Michael R. Lam, acquired the rare property that was personally owned and worn by JFK.
  • And they wanted to know how Michael had the idea to patent his new historical memorabilia innovation.
  • So Rossellini wrote up the true story and put it on Great American Eyewear's website's home page for you to read! (See "What's Inside Our Eyewear")

An Uncompromising Vision of Personal Eyewear with Incredible Power to . . . Touch Greatness

  • Some other things people asked: "Is the crystal sapphire in the fine jewelry setting strong?"
  • So Rossellini explained that although the surface of the fine-jewelry setting is as clear as glass, (and that's why you and your friends can easily see the weave of JFK's shirt underneath) . . . it's not made of glass. It's actually a sapphire crystal cabochon, whose hardness is second only to diamond on the scale of transparent materials. That means the surface of the sapphire crystal is far less likely to scratch.

Personally Choose the Best

  • The reaction Rossellini JFK sunglasses wearers received from their friends and relatives was: "Where did you get your sunglasses?" 
  • "Those are beautiful sunglasses!
  • "I've never seen this kind of jewelry design on eyewear before! I love it on sunglasses. . . its subtle, yet exquisite."
  • Most everyone told him . . . This is an awesome design concept!"
