Traditionally, a tortoise shell barrette or hair clip was just that - a barrette or clip made of tortoise shell pieces. This has been an extremely popular hair accessory material and look for many years. We do not carry any genuine tortoise shell accessories, however, our fine artisans in France have crafted an attractive faux tortoise shell made of high quality cellulose acetate. These tortoise hair accessories are polished to a beautiful sheen. These classic hair accessories will fit right into your everyday look. Shop our Tortoise Accessories.
