These sunglasses would have to be the highest pair of sought-after BLING for fashionistas everywhere (or fans of Dame Edna Everage). Added back in 2011, they are still quite the rarity said to be a world drop in both Cata and MoP (including the Blingtron 4000 Gift Package). However, the design can only be seen by JC’ers making it that much rarer.

To anyone lucky enough to learn the design, please let me know as I’m not entirely convinced it exists in-game.

It’s often listed for thousands of gold so it’s no wonder it’s taken me several years to collect a pair of my own. Today that all changed when I found a pair in the AH for a very affordable price.

Sadly, you can’t mog these so all we need is an addon to switch headgear whenever we want to take a selfie (just like the Auto Safari Hat for pet battlers). I’m sure ‏and Fabulor would approve.

  1. It’s a shame that the Bling4k and 5k quests share a cooldown. I would love to loot the 4k everyday for a chance at the recipe, but that comes at the cost of missing out on the 5k.

    • I agree, I still have 2 of those messages to decode. Good luck with the recipe.

  2. As my banker started making a little more money, I made sure she had an outfit that fit her status, and the glasses were a must have! I think I paid 5,ooo gold for them. I believe it was well spent. I’m just a little sad that I left my ruby shades on a bank toon when I transferred Del during her nomad days.

    • It’s kind of cool they’re not soulbound so I could give mine to a banker but I don’t think I’ll be doing that anytime soon. I do love those items which are perfect for bank toons though.

  3. Woohoo!

    Perhaps folks are finding the Rhinestone Shades to be hard to sell at their formerly elevated prices, despite everyone being glutted with gold from their Garrisons. I found a pair for under 1K myself not too long ago.
