Gemma’s Love Island sunglasses really stole the show during her time in this year's villa. While Gemma Owen herself was in the running to win Love Island 2022 (though was beaten out by Davide and Ekin-Su), her timeless sunglass collection had already won our hearts. So if you were also a fan of her stylish shades, we've got some good news—we know where to buy all her faves, plus some budget alternatives.

After making it all the way to the last episode of Love Island with fish flop fanatic, Luca Bish—the daughter of football legend Michael Owen has proved that her style outside of the villa, is just as good as it was inside. As her sunnies have made a number of appearances IRL and are proving to be the perfect staples for transitional weather!

Despite no longer being on our screens for an hour every eve, we still can't get Gemma's chic, cool-girl shades out of our heads. So (*Davide's accent*) naturally we'd been scouring the internet for them and have found exactly where to shop Gemma’s Love Island sunglasses, including budget and designer options...

Where to buy Gemma’s Love Island sunglasses

Her most coveted pair of sunglasses are the gold-rimmed, rounded ones that she would always be wearing for all the most memorable Love Island moments. They never failed to give her that cool 'unbothered' look, which we'd very much like to channel for the rest of the year.

The pair are from the brand DITA and will cost you a pretty penny—but Gemma's have made it through eight weeks of sun, mad scenes and vigorous challenges in the villa—so we'd say they're a pretty good investment. Plus, they look fab.


DITA Epiluxury Eplx.4 Desoo4

RRP: $1,845/ £1,400

As worn by Gemma on Love Island

This dramatic pair of shades feature think tinted lenses, gold rims and come with a stylish chain to keep them around your neck. They're also shaped to cover the sides of your eyes against any glare.


Serengeti Geary Mineral Polarized sunglasses

RRP: $420/£370

This style from Serengeti are very similar to the Dita shades but a lot easier on the pursestrings. They come in four colorways, all ideal for chillier but sunny Autumn days and are of course timeless—so when 2023's summer comes around, you'll be all set. Plus they're polarized so will give your eyes the best protection from the sun. We recommend the all-black pair as they'll go with everything and are in keeping with Gemma's style.

Our dressage expert's second favorite style of sunnies is aviator sunglasses. Throughout season eight you can spy her repping a pair of Quay aviators as well as RayBans, just like her beau Luca wears—couples who match sunnies together, stay together, that’s the rule!

If you adore Gemma's DITA sunglasses but are on a budget—don't worry, we've rounded up some great alternatives that feature the same rounded shape and gold detailing, from brands like Ray-Ban and Vans...


Ray-Ban Round-Frame sunglasses

RRP: $189/£156

These Ray-Bans are a great swap for Gemma's as they have a similar warm-tinted lens, a rounded shape and the double gold nose bridge frame—for a fraction of the price.


Vans Henderson aviator sunglasses in gold

This pair from Vans features the same gold frames and rounded shape as Gemma's—just minus the thicker lens.


Pretty Little Thing Black Double Frame Square Sunglasses

RRP: $21/£10

This pair is more of a square shape but still has the trendy gold frame look and a thicker, black lens.


Versace logo-engraved aviator sunglasses

RRP: $410/£302

Now these Versace aviators are a real find because they incorporate both of Gemma’s preferred styles.

They’re shaped like aviators but feature a thicker lens and hints of gold—we’re obsessed!
