Jewellery has been made from Marcasite for over 2,000 years, and was a frequently used gemstone in Ancient Greece. In more recent times popularity grew in the Victorian Era, with small pieces of Marcasite inlaid into Silver Jewellery to create beautiful Art Nouveau pieces.
The recent popularity of Art Nouveau Jewellery designs has seen a resurgence in the use of Marcasite, long renowned for its gleam / sparkle (it was a common replacement for Diamonds in 18th Century Switzerland, when Diamonds were banned from public display).
Earlier this year we trialed wholesaling some Pearl & Marcasite Jewellery and it proved so popular that we’ve decided to expand our range to include Sterling Silver & Marcasite Jewellery.
As wholesalers we are constantly on the look out for new trends and fashions, plus quality jewellery designs. View our full Marcasite Range on the Cultured UK Website , or call us on 0845 459 0181 to set up an appointment.
