Founded more than 80 years ago, Ray Ban is indeed a household name for sunglasses. Despite facing increasing competition from modern fashion houses, Ray Ban continues to hold its crown in the sunglasses industry with its vintage designs, while being fuelled by improving lens and frames technology.
True style never dies. One of Ray Ban’s most recognized designs is no doubt the Aviator. Designed back in 1939 specifically for pilots’ use in the sky, Ray Ban’s Aviator has since been a favourite for many people, regardless if you hold a license to fly a plane or not.
The style has also been seen on countless celebrities over decades and generations: from Rolling Stones in the 70’s, to Tom Cruise in Top Gun in the 80’s, to today’s Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, and countless Hollywood stars.

A pair of beautiful, high-end Ray Ban’s Aviator sunglasses is priced from USD 150, according to the brand’s official website. I must say that this price tag is considered reasonable for the style, comfort and protection offered by the shades.
Having said that, some might still prefer to save a few bucks on fashion expenses like this, especially in today’s world where cheap, high-quality replicas are not unheard of. And this brings us back to the main point of this blog post, which is to guide our smart online shoppers on how and where to look for cheap, high-quality Ray Ban’s sunglasses online!
From all the online resources we have looked into, we are going to show you our top 4 destinations: Taobao, AliExpress, DHgate and Prime Stuff.
First off, Taobao. To search for cheap Ray Ban’s sunglasses Replica on the website, you should search with keyword “雷家墨镜” (which translates into “R-brand sunglasses”) and you will arrive at sunglasses listed within the price range of USD 4 – USD 70.
Most of these sunglasses resemble an authentic pair of Ray Ban’s sunglasses albeit being mere imitations, as indicated by their cheap prices. Nevertheless, I would suggest you to only buy items with high ratings to minimize the risk of getting a pair of sunglasses with horrendous quality – despite being cheap, I don’t think you want to pay for anything that is going to break apart in its parcel during shipping!

Our next stop is: AliExpress. To look for cheap, wholesale Ray Ban’s sunglasses on the website, you should search with keyword “reyban sunglasses” (Note: that’s not a typo! I did spell rEyban instead of rAyban). The misspelling is to help you to dodge anti-piracy control on AliExpress.
With this searching, you will arrive at pages of results listing Ray Ban’s sunglasses replicas priced at average USD 8. Yes, what a steal! Many of the listed sunglasses also have decent ratings and amount of past orders. I would say that these are all good signs of a good pair of Ray Ban’s replica!
Do head to AliExpress and do some browsing to see if you can find anything you like!

Moving on, our third stop is: DHgate. Like AliExpress, DHgate is a huge online wholesaler offering products at wholesale amount and price rate. To look for cheap, wholesale Ray Ban’s sunglasses (and their replicas) on the website, you need to search with keyword “pilot sunglasses” (for Ray Ban’s Aviator style only).
Most of the sunglasses in the result pages are priced within the range of USD 7 – USD 25, many of which also have high rating from past customers. Just an extra note: one of them has even accumulated a total number of 175 customer reviews with a 4.5 stars rating (Note: see screen cap below)!
At a glance, DHgate seems to carry quite a number of cheap, wholesale Ray Ban sunglasses on its website!

Now, lastly: Prime Stuff. Prime Stuff (www.primestuff.ru) is an online fashion wholesaler that brings its customers numerous premium brands and products at affordable price tags. The website also guarantees to carry only high-grade 1:1 replicas; in other words, replicas with trusted superior quality!
To look for cheap, high-quality Ray Ban’s sunglasses on the website, you can simply search for the brand “Ray Ban” under the Brand tab of the website and you shall arrive at pages listing a medley of Ray Ban sunglasses. The assortment available on Prime Stuff is also very impressive – it does not only carries the Aviator, but also many other popular styles from Ray Ban!
Most of the Ray Ban’s shades on Prime Stuff are priced at average USD 50, with certain styles going up to USD 80. While these are indeed more expensive compared to those listed on Taobao, AliExpress and DHgate, their prices are justified by the fact that they are high-quality replicas that even come with packaging that resembles the original!
I would highly recommend Prime Stuff if you want to do a risk-free shopping of Ray Ban’s sunglasses with reliable quality, given that you do not mind chipping in an extra 10 bucks or so!
