Close-up view of the tiara from the carved conch-shell parure, Italian (Naples), c. 1860. The giant, or Queen, conch shell (Strombus gigas) was imported from the West Indies and occurs as distinct pink and white layers. Because the layers are relatively thin, and the strong colour occurs mainly on the lip of the shell, multiple pieces were often built up to create a high relief cameo effect.
