European Marcasite (Iron Pyrite) were known in the early 20th century as the poor man's diamonds.
Marcasite jewelry had a major revival in the 1980s and 1990s...but make no mistake, there is no comparison to the craftsmanship of the Art Deco pieces.
Theodor Fahrner, one of the icons of Art Deco Jewelry set the standard for German Marcasite jewelry.
The 1920s and 1930s Marquesite jewelry was hand fabricated, and the Marcasites that were used were much smaller and more numerous.
In short these were artistic, fine examples of high Deco jewelry; at modest prices.

This ring curves to the finger and has a fancy cut green Chrysoprase gem and 20 Marcasites in various sizes.
A great OLD find!
