Oxidized silver butterfly brooch with prong-set marcasite and ruby eyes

Rubies are found along the border of the Himalayan mountains and in countries such as Myanmar, Thailand, India, Pakistan and Nepal.

Marcasite became popular in the early 1900’s when diamonds were a luxury people couldn’t afford anymore.

Prong setting uses four metal projections called prongs in the placement of each marcasite.  This type of setting allows light to strike the marcasite from more angles, increasing its brilliance.

Oxidation is a surface treatment applied to the silver which gives the jewellery its retro quality.
