Marcasite Jewellery UK

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.

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.
