Vintage Marcasite And Pearl Gold Chain Earrings
This product is sold out
These elegant earrings feature vintage sterling silver marcasite and pearl and gold fill drops on gold fill chains.
Marcasite jewellery dates back to ancient Greek culture and experienced a revival in Georgian times as it was cheaper and less rare than diamonds. Queen Victoria wore Marcasite jewellery when mourning the loss of Prince Albert as it was considered less showy than diamonds which again increased its popularity. Marcasite again came to the fore in the Art Deco period and is still a popular jewellery choice today. We have given these vintage sterling silver marcasite necklace components a new lease of life to create a pair of stunning earrings.
This earring can be worn 2 ways with the marcasite and pearl drop either at the front or the back.
The total length of the earring including the chain is 11.5cm.
