Product Details


Marcasite became popular in the early 1900’s when diamonds were a luxury people couldn’t afford anymore.

Prong setting uses four metal projections called prongs in the placement of each marcasite. This type of setting allows light to strike the marcasite from more angles, increasing its brilliance.

Oxidation is a surface treatment applied to the silver which gives the jewellery its retro quality.

A type of mollusk known for producing quality freshwater pearls is inserted with grafts to encourage its formation. This method results in pearls entirely composed of nacre. To prevent freshwater pearls from being scratched, it is advisable to store them in individual pouches and away from other jewels.
