Also known as iron pyrite, marcasite is often used set in sterling silver jewelry to highlight or add detail to a piece. Opaque with a metallic sheen, this fabulous mineral can be found in a variety of different pieces and often in the most glorious patterns and settings.
Consider a pair of stunning chandelier earrings by Genevieve & Grace. Available for both women and juniors, the subtle elegance of this stone can be found alongside other stones such as topaz, crystals, and even mother of pearl.
For a fantastic piece of jewelry that can accessorize just about any outfit, consider a ring set with a large marcasite stone and accented with smaller stones. Also set in sterling silver, the contrast between the shiny silver and the deeper grey of the stone is captivating and any of these rings will surely become a conversation piece.
When looking for matching pieces, consider a pendant necklace featuring marcasite set in gold-plated silver. These gorgeous necklaces by Studio Silver can be paired with other gold jewelry pieces to create a look that can be either casual or dressy. For a great look, pair the pendant necklace with a coordinated pair of drop earrings. Wear these showy pieces with your favorite dress, or even with a pantsuit—they're that versatile.
