Material Information

Peridot

The golden green gemstone peridot is the gem variety of the mineral forsterite. Long valued for its exceptional color, peridot has been used in jewelry since antiquity.

From the mid 1800s, peridot was a favored stone in jewelry, reaching the height of its popularity during the aesthetic period of the Victorian era and the reign of Edward VII of England, who designated it as his favorite gemstone. Almost every school of the day – the Pre-Raphaelites, the Arts and Crafts movement, Art Nouveau as well as those working in the Edwardian style – incorporated this gemstone into their designs.

Marcasite (Pyrite)

Marcasite is an iron sulfide mineral with an orthorhombic crystal structure. It is very brittle and unsuitable for jewelry. What we call "marcasite" in jewelry is actually Pyrite – "fools gold" – that has been faceted to imitate diamonds. Popular from around 1700 onward, marcasite is usually found mounted in silver. Because of its golden yellow color and metallic luster, Marcasite has remained popular in higher quality fashion jewelry. In antique jewelry, marcasite can be distinguished from cut steel faux gems because marcasites are usually bead or prong-set as a gemstone would be and cut steel is riveted.

Silver

Silver is a white metallic element, harder than gold, softer than copper and second only to gold in malleability and ductility. Represented on the Periodic Table of the Elements by the symbol Ag, silver is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Silver is considered one of the noble metals because of it is excellent resistance to oxidation. Historically, silver has played a prominent role in the production of jewelry an objets d'art and is usually alloyed with another metal to harden it enough to maintain the desired shape and details imparted to it.
