A lovely pair of tortoiseshell double hoop earrings in great condition. They were made circa 1870. When Prince Albert died there was born a fashion for black jewellery in sympathy with Queen Victoria’s loss. Many items were produced in Whitby jet and tortoiseshell which at first were plain and then, as the century wore on the items became more decorative and were inlaid with gold and silver and mother of pearl to lighten the look.
