Mmmm, Marcasite

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.

    Just lovely:)
    Thank you for sharing,
    Jill
    P.S. I loved dressup as a child and maybe still do;)

    • Glad you like them Jill, finding the second one was more luck than anything else. There is a lot of costume jewellery in the shop, and you really need to sift through it…

      This IS my dress up. I don’t really try it with clothes, but shoes, handbags and jewellery, mmmmm.
