This pretty necklace features a vintage sterling silver marcasite brooch on a rose gold plate on sterling silver chain. As the pin and catch are still intact the chain could be slipped off and the brooch could be worn alone.
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 this vintage sterling silver marcasite brooch a new lease of life to create a stunning necklace.
The marcasite pendant measures 4cm and the chain measures 70cm.
