The Spectacular Vintage Wedding Fair October 30 2013, 0 Comments

What a great October Bank Holiday Weekend we had!  Chicago Marcasite Jewellery had it's first outing at a Wedding Fair and thankfully the reaction was fantastic.....Phew......

 

The Spectacular Vintage Wedding Fair was held in the beautiful old house at Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny which was a perfect setting for all things vintage style.   From wonderful wedding dresses to quirky decorations, you could only but be impressed by the creativity and imagination of the stands.  

 

Our collection of freshwater pearl and marcasite earrings were of particular interest which would complement any wedding dress.  It was great to get so much positive feedback.

 

Not only did we meet wonderful brides-to-be but we also met some lovely fellow exhibitors such as Nicola & Paul from Daintree Paper and Joanna & Karen from One Fab Day.  And not forgetting Rebecca & Kate who organised the event.  They outdid themselves.  Well Done Girls!!!  

 

If you happened to miss it, you can still catch the next event at The Ambassador in Cork on the 9th & 10th November.  Click on the link below for more info......

Fall into Autumn with Red Agate September 28 2013, 0 Comments

A lovely warming colour for this season Red Agate features a lot in our collection.  Set alongside marcasite in sterling silver, it gives a rich and elegant look to any outfit.  

Agate is a natural stone also known as Chalcedony.  In ancient times Agate was highly valued as an amulet or Talisman.   Legend has it that Persian magicians used it to divert storms while it is also said to quench thirst and protect from fevers. 

 

Red Agate is found in a selection of our range from earrings to rings and brooches.
