Chicago Marcasite Jewellery - In 2013 the lovely Rita created this fantastic brand due to her passion for vintage and art deco style jewellery. In 1993 Rita's mother Teresa opened her own jewellery store in Kilkenny (Ireland) selling unique antique jewellery and unusual sterling silver marcasite jewellery. In 2011 Rita herself took over the running of the business and her passion for these amazingly unique pieces grew.
Rita and many of her customers believe that marcasite reminds them of jewellery which their grannies would have owned. The marcasite stone really gives a piece of jewellery a 1920's jazz feel with the subtle sophistication which only this stone can create.
