Georgian Day-to-Night Tortoiseshell Earrings

Restrained in design, these earrings telegraph lush glamour with their oversized scale and contrasting materials. Rich, warm tortoiseshell is set into barely-there 18k gold frames that are matte expanses on the back. Indecipherable maker's marks, but we believe these are Continental European jewels from the 1830s or so. Drops can be removed to wear the small discs solo.
