Marcasite jewelry has been made since the time of the Ancient Greeks. It was valued for it's ability to provide a subtle, refined sparkle. It came into fashion again in the eighteenth century during the Victorian era and with Art Nouveau jewelry designers. Marcasite is making a strong comeback with today's up-and-coming designers for the very same reasons it was valued by the Greeks.
