Tortoiseshell, a very popular and long-standing item, has been used for many things in the past. It's been used in numerous hair accessories, to back hairbrushes, in sunglasses, tea sets, jewelry boxes and most importantly, jewelry.
Primarily it's a brown, black and often an orange pattern, nowadays made from plastic or plastic-like materials. So, you're probably wondering if it's tortoiseshell then why is it made of plastic?
The design tortoiseshell came from when people would use the shell of an actual hawksbill tortoise. When the population of this specific tortoise caused for alarm, people backed off and began using plastic to achieve the desired look of the actual tortoise's shell.
This specific breed of tortoise is not extinct and is still found all over the world - primarily in the coral reef.
I noticed there was a beautiful tortoiseshell bangle available in the Starplaza recently. This item is available in starcoins, so nonsuperstars have an opportunity to snatch up this fashionable must-have accessory. Currently available for 30 starcoins in RIO.
Here's some looks put together by fellow Stardoll members using the bangle.
