There is something about the original vintage marcasite pieces that is very alluring. Maybe it’s the fact that the original vintage marcasite pieces were hand-finished and delicately handset with minute claws (unlike today’s pieces that are mass-produced and glued on!) Or perhaps it's the attention to detail, or the natural darkened patina, rather than the distinct man-made oxidised finish of today...
Such a sweet delicate touch in the lobe these are! The original vintage earrings date back to around the 1950's-60's and are made in sterling silver. Complementary for night or day wear, the pierced circular design earrings are reminiscent of Art Deco style with 'flutes' to top and bottom and a flower-like design in centre. The vintage earrings are encrusted with sparkly marcasite gems.. So pretty! The marcasite gems are all hand-set with milgrain edging adding further vintage flair. A threaded attachment is on the reverse.
A beautiful pair of earrings which exude gorgeous vintage character!
