What's so fascinating about coin jewelry?
Coin jewelry is the ultimate blending of a sculptor's art and a jeweler's craftsmanship. Coin jewelry is usually made using precious metals, but it also available in non-precious materials like wood, leather, etc.
Ancient coin jewelry is so popular because it is a meeting of art and treasured pasts – a way to wear a piece of history or hold onto a memory. It is also a combination of sentiment with metal value, considering the purity of the gold, silver or bronze used to make the coin itself! It brings new meaning to the value of history, don't you think?
What to look for while buying coin jewelry
At its most basic level, this is jewelry so the beauty is what needs to appeal to you first! If you like what you see, your next concern is quality. Good quality coin jewelry has a symmetrical design with proper balance and a superior finish (no rough edges, level and uniformly set gemstones, gloss polishing on the front and back, and no blemishes). You should also pay close attention to how secure the coin is in the setting and whether the shank of the coin is too thin.
