I’ve loved Marcasite for years. I think it must be because I saw people still wearing the sparkling brooches made of it when I was a child, and just maybe I saw pieces in the jumble (junk) sales I used to be drawn to then too.
I remember when I was very young owning 1920s and 1930s handbags, necklaces and earrings. But, they were my dress-up, so I don’t have them now. Just goes to show how your character and taste is fixed even at that young age.
Over many years I have been gifted and bought quite a few Marcasite pieces, I have a few necklaces and earrings, but mostly rings. As I said in a previous post, the only vintage Marcasite I have is two rings that I bought fairly recently.
Below is a group shot of my Marcasite rings, then my 1920s Deco Marcasite ring, and lastly the Marcasite ring I bought a few weeks ago. I think this one is 1930s.
