This style of jewelry was popular during the Victorian Era, between 1860 and 1880. The shell was heated and shaped, then inlaid with gold and silver designs, called Pique A Jour. It creates a stunning contrast between the dark horn and the gleaming metals.
Our example has a naturalistic floral motif at the center, rimmed in a geometric ogee design. Lightweight and versatile, it will be the perfect accessory for your Autumn wardrobe!
