Area Information

Jewelers frequently employ precious metals and stones, but contemporary jewellery can be made from a variety of materials. As a result, traditional jewellery models take on a more contemporary look. Contemporary jewellery, in contrast to classic jewellery, reflects the tastes of the day. This provides the jewellery a distinct personality that places it between fashionable high-street jewellery and traditionally made works of art. You'll need both specialised training and in-depth subject knowledge to create contemporary jewellery. The contemporary aesthetic honours historical creativity while incorporating new innovations.

Material Information

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.
