Marcasite Open Heart Stud Earrings
Marcasite jewellery was first made in Ancient Greece. It gained popularity in the eighteenth century, the Victorian era and with Art Nouveau designers. When Prince Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria entered a period of mourning which meant opulent jewellery was to be avoided. Marcasite jewellery became popular with the nobility as an understated alternative.
Marcasite jewellery is made from cut and polished pieces of pyrite. It reflects light at different angles from its facets giving it sparkle, exactly like our beautiful sterling silver Heart studs.
