Unraveling the History of Marcasite

Let's take it back a few centuries (don't worry, we won't get all dusty and boring). Marcasite has been rocking the jewelry scene since way back when. But it was the Victorian era where it truly found its shine. Why, you ask? Well, nothing says "I'm mourning, but make it fashion" quite like marcasite. In this era, it was used as mourning jewelry due to its dark sparkle.

And here's a juicy tidbit for you - Queen Victoria herself was a huge fan of marcasite. Talk about royal approval, right?

Marcasite in Art Nouveau Jewelry Design

Fast forward to the Art Nouveau period - a time when jewelry design was all about natural forms, flowing lines and yes, you guessed it, marcasite! This little gem added just the right amount of sparkle to those intricate designs. Imagine swirling vines, delicate flowers, and ethereal figures, all accented with the dark shimmer of marcasite. Pure magic!
