Marcasite Silver…a new craze

Hello all ladies out here. I am presenting before you the beauty of silver jewelry, the collection I possess.

India is a land of jewelry. A huge market especially for gold. But in recent years silver jewelry too is gaining popularity among the younger generations. Not just white silver, oxidized silver too is in great demand.

 People are familiar with diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls. Heard of marcasite?! Few might have. People crazy of Marcasite silver jewelry like me will know how great the piece will look when worn.

 I feel I look elegant and perfect only when I wear an attractive jewelry of silver. Marcasite silver jewelry is my latest passion. This new love of mine instantly reviews my mood. The designs observed in Marcasite jewelry are very delicate and feminine. The selection of each marcasite stone enhances the beauty of the jewelry piece. I always go for silver jewelry since it can be mixed and matched with almost all outfit for all occasions. The art work when it comes to marcasite jewelry is spell bound. In India these jewelries are hand made.

 The price tag of these jewelries are very affordable. It ranges from as low as Rs. 200 and may extend up to your maximum budget.

Identifying Marcasite Silver Jewelry:

Marcasite Jewelry is the combination of sterling/oxidized silver and marcasite (white iron pyrite). It is a grey lustrous mineral. The color of marcasite ranges from dark grey to almost black with sparks of yellow or gold throughout the stone. These stones were once used as a substitute for diamonds in 18th century. But now marcasite is bought just for its beauty.

 Care of marcasite jewelry:

These jewelries require very special care since it is a very soft stone glued to the setting. Care has to be taken so that no damage occurs to the texture of the stone. However, the natural luster of the stone is never lost. Cleaning is to be done with damp, cloth wiping off excess moisture off and then air drying. Do not soak the jewelry in water for cleaning. Marcasite should not be cleaned with cleaning chemicals. Marcasite jewelry should be shielded from perfume and hairspray.

 Below are some (in fact few) of the pieces from the collection I own. All range for Rs. 300 to Rs. 4000. I hope my collection tempts at least one lady of WiseShe to own at least one piece of marcasite silver jewelry. J. I have provided the approximate price details along with the item image.
