Who can give me a clue? This is a rose gold tooth pick without any hallmark and a loop. I suppose to wear as pendant but originally to hang on a chatelaine perhaps? Could I be right? And what period?
Please advise me?

    I don't know much about these but I would guess late 19th/early 20th century.
    But rose gold always lands me in that timeline.

    As always AR8Jason thanks for your comment. I'v looked at your tooth pick and this is very nice decorated. And no, I cannot find any identification markings. Have you any idea what could be the purpose of using tortoise shell.This material is not so strong and much softer than metal.
    I use this opportunity to wish you and your wife (MrsAR8Jason) and family Merry Christmas, a happy, healthy 2013 and I hope to "met",hear and see from you both a lot of times in the new year!!

    AR8Jason, yes that's a logic reason why they used tortoise shell. This was one of my first antique little jewels I bought when I was still young and perhaps therefore interesting the use of the tortoise and no metal.
