Larus Jewellery

Founded in 1981, Larus is one of North America’s most innovative importers of handset marcasite jewelry. 

Marcasite jewellery has been made since the time of the Ancient Greeks. It was particularly popular in the eighteenth century, the Victorian era and with Art Nouveau jewellery designers. When diamonds were banned from public display in Switzerland in the 18th century marcasite, along with cut steel, was turned to as a replacement.
