Marcasite Brooch

Marcasite Jewellery in the UK is often associated with an Art Nouveau, or Vintage Jewellery, style. The origins of the UK popularity date back to 1861, when after the death of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria banned the wearing of opulent jewellery at court and required all to wear black in mourning. In this period the nobility turned to the simple, stylish silver and black designs of this stylish Vintage Jewellery.

Marcasite Jewellery Set

 

Often in Jewellery what is called Marcasite is in fact Pyrite, also known as Fool’s Gold. Pyrite and Marcasite are both Iron Sulphides, however unlike Marcasite the structure of Pyrite is more stable and less brittle, hence being more suitable for Jewellery. It is called Marcasite because until the 19th Century Miners called crystallized Pyrite gemstones Marcasites.

Art Nouveau Jewellery

The fashion for Art Nouveau Jewellery, and Vintage Jewellery styles, has given Marcasite Jewellery a new popularity in the 21st Century. Stylish Marcasite Brooches, Marcasite Earrings, Marcasite Pendants and Marcasite Jewellery Sets can be found in the collections of many contemporary Jewellery Designers.

Art Deco Jewellery

Art Deco Jewellery styles utilise geometric and structures forms, the simple styling of black Marcasite stones and Sterling Silver lends a timeless elegance to many Art Deco Jewellery pieces. Many of the items we stock at Pearl Jewellery Online follow the geometric and structure Art Deco styling of the early 20th Century.

Vintage Jewellery

The best way to clean this type jewellery is to use a a damp cloth and then wipe it dry with a soft cloth. The Sterling Silver in the jewellery should be gently rubbed with a jewellery cleaning cloth, lightly buffing all sides of the jewellery piece.

Small Pearl Earrings

Over recent months we’ve noticed that Small Pearl Earrings are something that customers are increasingly searching for and we’ve been working hard to help customers find the fashion look they are trying to achieve.

One of the first questions we ask when we are seeking to help a customer is ‘what is your budget’, the reason we ask this question is that it’s obviously going to influence the options. The first choice is metal for the jewellery findings and with the price of an ounce of Gold currently being around 100 times the price of an ounce of Silver it makes a big difference to the price of the final item of jewellery.

3mm 9ct Gold Pearl Earrings

Despite the price of Gold currently our most popular pair of Small Pearl Earrings are these stylish 9ct Gold 3mm Round Pearl Earrings.

The second factor influencing the price of a pair of Small Pearl Earrings is the shape of the Pearl. Perfectly round pearls are quite rare, this is because the eventual shape of the pearl is determined by a number of factors occurring inside the Oyster, such as the shape of the irritant around which the Oyster forms a pearl. Far more common are ‘button pearls’ which are roundish but flatter on one side (useful for attaching to earring posts). In choosing a Button Pearl on Sterling Silver Post the cost of a pair of Tiny Pearl Earrings becomes very affordable, yet still very stylish, and often indistinguishable from a set of Round Pearl Earrings when viewed from all but the closest of distances.

Small Pearl Earrings

Pearl Colour doesn’t have a huge influence upon the cost of a pair of Tiny Pearl Earrings, so long as you are choosing one of the naturally occurring Pearl Colours i.e. White, Pink or Lavender. Black Cultured Freshwater Pearls can also be very affordable, however they are created by heating and fixing the colour of the Pearl, which often results in a Blue, Green or Purple tone to the Black. Only Tahitian Pearls have a naturally occurring true Black Pearl, and Tahitian Pearls are a very exclusive and expensive Pearl, it would be unusual to see them used for a pair of Tiny Pearl Earrings.

Tiny Pearl Earrings

Perhaps the only other consideration when choosing a pair of Small Pearl Earrings is whether you are looking for a simple Pearl Stud Earring, or perhaps something more decorative, where the pearl is enclosed set in a more elaborate setting.

Whatever your budget or choice of style we believe we have one of the widest selections of Tiny Pearl Earrings of any Online Jeweller, and we are regularly updating our range.

We have a chat box on our website and we are always happy to talk to customers and help them find the perfect item.

Baroque Pearl Necklaces are one of our favourite items of jewellery. Did you know that fewer than 10% of cultured pearls are round? Mother Nature creates the remainder in a range of shapes, the most common of which is baroque. A baroque pearl is organically shaped and asymmetric, and may have either smooth or rippled surfaces. We find these organic shapes irresistible, very tactile, and as each pearl is unique they make a very personal item of jewellery.

Baroque Pearl Necklace

Baroque Pearls can be found in the natural range of pearl colours: white, pink, lavender and black, and of course you can also dye the pearls to a specific colour, such as the Cranberry Red Baroque Pearl Jewellery Set below.

Baroque Pearl Jewellery Set

A large Baroque Pearl can be less expensive than a similarly sized Round Pearl, due to the relative scarcity of perfectly formed round pearls. Therefore when seeking a statement piece Pearl Necklace with large pearls Baroque Pearl Necklaces offer great value for money.

Baroque Pearl Necklace

Similarly if you are seeking a chunky pearl bracelet with large organic shaped pearls then Baroque Pearl Bracelets are the perfect choice.

Baroque Pearl Bracelet

Baroque Pearls are once again in fashion, due to their natural appearance and unique shapes. This resurgence in interest in Baroque Pearls should not be a surprise, they were a feature of Victorian and Art Nouveau jewellery, one of the most famous pieces being the Canning Jewel, a pendant featuring a Merman, created in the middle of the 19th Century and now on show at the V&A in London.

Canning Jewel

You will find a wide range of Baroque Pearl Jewellery on our Pearl Jewellery Online website, ranging from Baroque Pearl Necklaces to Baroque Pearl Earrings, and we can also create bespoke pieces to order, simply call us on 0800 699 0119.
