3 Types of Antique Coin Jewelry That Make the Biggest Fashion Statement

August 21, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Jewelry

Let’s face it — unless you have a really bold piece of jewelry, you’re not going to have people oohing and ahhing over it. If you want your jewelry to take center stage, get some antique coin jewelry. In fact, these 3 types can turn any outfit into a big fashion statement:

1. Atocha coin jewelry

It might seem like more of a fable than reality, but Atocha coin jewelry can literally take you back to the days of gold-laden ships travelling across the Atlantic. The Nuestra SeƱora de Atocha was one of them — part of a fleet of Spanish ships that was responsible for transporting some of Spain’s treasure to Havana in the 1600’s. Unfortunately, thanks to a hurricane off the Florida Keys, the ship sank, leaving all of its coins to sink to the bottom of the Atlantic — and leaving Spain with serious financial troubles.

More than 300 years later, the Atocha’s treasure was recovered. Today, that treasure has been turned into Atocha coin jewelry. By wearing some, you’ll be part of an amazing story that changed history!

2. The right gold coin pendant

Even if it doesn’t come with a story as dramatic as the Atocha’s, you can find gold coin jewelry that looks fantastic — and will give you a great story to tell when you wear it. For example, a good gold coin jewelry retailer will have everything from ancient Drachmas, to coins used in the days of Ancient Rome, to gold that’s been around since the days of Christ.

Just make sure your gold coin pendant comes with a very simple setting. After all, you don’t want anything to distract from the coin itself!

3. A big silver coin necklace

While they come in all kinds of different sizes, if you want to make the biggest fashion statement, opt for a big silver coin necklace. The bigger it is, the more details people will be able to make out on it when you wear it. As long as it’s in good condition, a big silver coin will tell you when and where it was minted and even who the King was at the time. Now THAT’S a great way to add some personality to that little black dress!

As an added benefit, a big antique silver coin necklace will be dulled by time, so you won’t have to worry about wearing a big, shiny pendant around your neck. That way, you’ll get an elegant, unique look — that won’t make you look like you’re wearing a disco ball!
