The Details...

This silver ring features a central emerald cut green glass panel surrounded by round marcasite stones. The inside of the ring's shank is stamped 'SILVER'. The ring is a UK size 'Q 1/2'.

A Short History...

The use of marcasite in jewellery dates from the late 1700s. It is the mineral iron pyrites and, when faceted and polished, sparkles like diamonds. It was extrememly popular in jewellery design during the roaring Twenties and Deco Thirties, as an affordable alternative to the fashion for pieces encrusted in diamonds.

Wear it With...

The romantic Deco detailing in this piece would make it the perfect accompaniment for a bridal gown. Pair with a liquid satin colum for the ultimate nod to the 1920s.
