Women's Tortoise Hoop Earrings
Real tortoiseshell, the once-prized material that's now (thankfully) banned worldwide, was loved for its signature mottled appearance. Today the tortoise print is recreated with acetate and other equally durable synthetic materials, but with the same glamour as when it was first introduced in the 1920s on everything from embellished hair combs to bag clasps. Tortoise hoops? Length: 2 1/4". Acetate. Light gold ox plating.
