Tortoise smell styles have been one of the most enduring designs in the world of accessories. Believe it or not, tortoise shell material for accessories was actually extracted from an endangered species, the hawsbill tortoise, until 1973. During the Victoria Era, aristocrats were attracted to tortoise shell materials for intricate jewelry and picture frames adorned with precious metals. Thankfully, the trade of tortoise shells for popular items like combs, sunglasses, and guitar picks, was banned by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Today’s version of the tortoise shell style uses only synthetic materials that do not harm any species at all. Some of the hottest sunglasses styles, like the Persol PO2747S style, look absolutely stunning in tortoise shell. People have always loved the beautiful appearance and durable structure of tortoise shell and also for the organic warmth it brings to a wide range of skin tones. These sunglasses look great on both men and women, and their sturdy full-rim frames are durable enough to take with you on a daily basis. Because tortoise shell feature have a range of colors intertwined in its pattern, sunglasses of this style look natural on blondes, brunettes, redheads, and everyone in between.
