The regal looking design features a wrap over effect with the rectangular blue topaz stones that are approx. 8mm x 9mm making them an exceptional size!
The Victorians loved Marcasite due to the nature of the sparkle and shine you get in all forms of light; natural, artificial and candle, making for fabulous versatile pieces of jewellery that will sparkle their way through the day and into the night.
Marcasite jewellery needs to be kept clean to keep its lustre. The best way to do this is using a soft silver cleaning cloth and NEVER silver dips/agents which loosen and discolour the stones.
For that reason too, avoid direct contact with water and perfume to ensure the longevity of these heirlooms ever after. It is recommended to remove when swimming, bathing or in manual work.
