The jewelry trade uses the name marcasite in reference to pyrite or fool's gold. Marcasite's name is derived from marqashith, the Arabic word for pyrite, after an ancient province in northeastern Persia. Archeological digs in this area have yielded more information about life in ancient Persia than any other site to date. Approximately 20,000 pieces of jewelry artifacts and gold ornaments have been unearthed, and many are adorned with beautiful pyrite, amethyst, lapis, carnelian and turquoise gems. The archeologists named this dig site Tillya Tepe, meaning 'Hill of Gold'. Tillya Treasures(TM) is Jewelry Television's exclusive collection of marcasite jewelry that includes this mysterious gem set in phenomenal metal workings made of precious .925 sterling silver. Own a piece of this once hidden gemstone treasure now created for today's modern woman but inspired by this historic era of Persian culture. Tillya Treasures(TM) are available exclusively on Jewelry Television and jtv.com.

Review This Product
Very Unique!I am very happy with this necklace. It is very unique, most of all it was exactly what I was looking for to secure my marcasite enhancers. The marcasite is lovely, the design is unusual, the garnets are not the best quality, but nicely cut and they do sparkle. My only complaint is the claps, it is so small it is hard to handle. I will leave it closed and use the marcasite ring as the clasps. I would surely go back to JTV and order this in the other stones available. The price is great! July 22, 2014

I love it.I read the other reviews on this item but decided to order it anyway. Boy, am I glad! It's exactly what I was looking for and it's EXACTLY like the photo. It's a really nice burgundy with purple tones just like a dark Rhodolite garnet, it's just not clear. But really? 136 carats of garnet for under $50? I would expect it to be included. Plus, I like it better than if it has clear beads because I feel that would make it look gaudy and fake.Not sure why anyone would be expecting Vermelho garnet, it's not listed as Vermelho. I'm really glad I ordered this, I've even since ordered more pendants to go with it! If you like the picture? Don't hesitate, June 07, 2014

DEFINITELY NVG**NOT VERMELHO GARNET. And for the price, who could realistically expect it to be. But coupled with the sparse use of marcasites and the way too tiny lobster claw clasp (I notched my thumbnail trying to fasten it), I can only give it an average rating. The color of the garnets is actually the color shown in the video. The difference is that in the video there is a large amount of concentrated light shining through the beads and since that doesn't happen in real life my beads appear a very dark reddish purple. But of course I will keep the necklace. And after I change the clasp I am sure I will find it very useful. May 11, 2014

No True Red Garnet HereThe color is a deeper red-purple rather than a nice pomegranate red that one might expect from a garnet bead necklace. I have other garnet bead necklaces that feature glossy red beads and I had hoped to add a faceted version to my collection. Well, overall the necklace is very pretty with the use of marcasite on the enhancer finding. Since I have a variety of pendants to wear with this necklace, I can keep it and enjoy it for the color it is rather than the color I hoped it would be. I think the value is only fair given the lower quality beads and lightweight silver findings. It is NOT a $ 70.00 necklace on any assessment, if you consider gram weight for silver, garnet bead quality, and rather simplistic design. I suspect the cost is related more to the marketing practice of branding than the actual quality of the item. Think twice. May 11, 2014
