The most expensive sunglasses in the world are made by Chopard, feature 60 grams of 24 carat gold, and cost a whopping $408,000. Yet on eBay tomorrow, Jennifer Aniston’s simple aviators might just top that.
At the Oscars on Sunday night, Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel surprised a bunch of unsuspecting people with a short trip to the front row of the ceremony. Gary from Chicago and his selfie stick carrying fiancée were the first in line and Kimmel pleaded with his celebrity friends to gift the soon-to-be newlyweds with a present.
“Jen do you have a wedding gift for them, maybe you can give them something from your purse,” Kimmel asked the Friends actress. He pleaded with her husband too. “Justin, you give them something too, will ya? How about those sunglasses, Jen? you don’t need those it’s dark.”
Aniston obliged and gave the sunnies in her clutch to Gary’s unnamed girl — and the Internet loved it.
If they offered me an oscar or jennifer aniston's sunglasses I honestly would need at least an hour to deliberate.

How much do you think Jennifer Aniston paid for those sunglasses she was just shamed in giving away? Wink

Many were curious just how much the sunglasses cost — and it seems they might retail for $525. If Twitter is to be believed, Jason Wu’s retweet of a story from Grazia Mexico reveals a lot.

The shades in the tweet look a lot like the pair given away by Aniston and come from Wu’s new eyewear collection in honor of his brand’s 10 year anniversary. The 18-karat gold washed lenses just went on sale Feb. 15 and are produced in France.
