Revealing the cost price is an unethical thing for people in the trade to do..

Hi , if i am not wrong, will have to replace the whole temple. However, have to check availability with the agent to see if that model still has serviceable parts.

Branded specs usually comes with 1 year warranty. check with the shop you bought from. Could get a free replacement if its within a year.

This spec frame is bought more than 3 years, the lenses were recently changed but one of the gems had dropped. I was wondering if I bring to the original Prada store, can 1 of the gems be replaced?

Hi

Unfortunately No, it's just like wear and tear.

Yes,all types. Maybe tinted sunglasses wont get to see that

Normal clear lenses are inevitable to see those.

No. There shouldnt be anything lighter than that from my knowledge.

Apart from the material, the next factor to consider is the degree of your eye which will affect the weight.

Lindberg spirit/Air titanium also wont be able to match the weight of the frame.(as light as they are)

There are pros and cons of swissflex compared to other frames but to answer your qns, once again, Not that i know off at this point of time.(swissflex lightest)
Perhaps I can weigh in (no pun intended) with my experience.

My frameless Swissflex weighs in at 10g, Lindberg Air titanium rim weighs in at 15g. The 15g still feels comfortable, but really nothing can beat the weight of Swissflex.
