Shimmering marcasite was a popular choice for colonial gentlewomen because of the way it sparkled in the dim glow of candlelight. This lovely bow is inspired by an 18th-century set of three brooches designed to adorn the front of a bodice. Similar jewelry and clothing adornment can be found in the antique collections of Colonial Williamsburg.
