Horn Jewelry

Horn is the fibrous, pointed growth on the heads of some animals which, being tough, light and easily worked has been used for centuries in various forms for ornamental wear. The ox-horn, ranging from white to dark brown has been used for buckles, brooches, etc. During the Art Nouveau period it was used to make decorative combs, hair ornaments and Tiaras.

Tortoise Shell Jewelry

Tortoise Shell is from the shell of the hawksbill turtle and has been used as a jewelry material since ancient times.  The finest color is usually considered to be translucent golden yellow with brown markings. However, the color can range from deep mottled brown to unmarked orange yellow. It is always partially translucent. Victorians were very fond of tortoise shell and used it enthusiastically. Today the tortoise is an endangered species.

Vintage costume jewelry on our website will denote the period from the late 1920s to the early 1970s. Vintage costume jewelry was made mostly in base metals, though brass and sterling were also used.  Sometimes a gold wash appeared over the base metals.

This jewelry was inexpensive to produce, however, the designs had an intrinsic beauty that made each piece unique and special.  This jewelry grew out of the desire of the average person to have copies of real jewelry.  Hollywood had a huge influence on people wanting look-alike copies of jewelry worn by screen idols. Vintage costume jewelry is a wearable art and many of the pieces were made by famous designers and companies. Each item reflects the historical period in which it was made.
