    Collectors Weekly is such a great website, I can learn a lot about vintage and antique items. One of the many beautiful things which sparked my interest were Pali's brass marcasite jewellery - delicate pieces decorated with typical dainty flowers. Now I just love those flowers with slim, pointy petals. Similar pieces are usually tagged as a Czech filigree or Art Deco jewellery on the net, some websites call them Art Nouveau - so much confusion about it.
    This brass necklace isn't marcasite, it's decorated with rhinestones, but equally beautiful. I was so pleased to find it today on my usual charity shop run, and it was only £0.99!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, when I spotted it.
    I think the necklace was silver plated, most of the plating already worn off. It was made probably between 1900-1940. Any info or thoughts are appreciated. Thank you for stopping by!!! :)

      Thank you all for your love clicks and comments :)
      Blunderbuss2 - I think it's nice how it is - with the wear as the brass is showing through. It has a beautiful old feel about it. And yes I will wear it!!! Usually I don't wear jewellery, but I like this one just too much !!!

      What a nice find and a bargain as Bonnie's! ;-)

      Re silvering would damage the stones... As you, I think is is so good looking with its wear!

      Love the rhinestones much better than marcasite! I have pieces where the finish is wearing off, just makes the piece that more genuine! Beatiful

      Hi Martika! Wow! I LOVE this!!! It reminds me of the necklace you and I saw on another site for way too much $$$. What an awesome find! I am seeing the pointy petal flowers with beautiful rhinestones (some colorful) and they are indeed just as beautiful if not more so than the marcasites. I hope you wear this one - as it is too beautiful not to wear - it is a statement piece!
