Product Details

Details

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

Chalcedony is compact silica most often found in sedimentary and volcanic environments. Formation occurs over a long period of time, as minerals are slowly deposited into a pocket of another type of rock, such as granite.

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.
