Why Does Coin Jewelry Never Go Out of Fashion? Smart shoppers know that classic designs will be appropriate for years to come without looking dated. While new trends bombard us, a handful of designs transcend short-term fads and become timeless classics. Even fashion experts agree that building a wardrobe around classic designs and only supplementing with trendy items is a wise way to make the most of your budget. So let’s consider why a coin pendant or coin watch will always look great like the navy blazer or the little black dress.
For thousands of years coins and medallions have been appreciated not only for their monetary value but also for their lasting beauty. Royalty were the first to mount treasure coins and wear them as jewelry. Praise of historical figures and ideas minted into artistic portraits and iconic symbols to evoke strong sentiments have always been the object in coin design, especially in a precious, everlasting metal. These attributes of coins and medallions, which make them a perfect conduit to convey devotions, ideals and identity, lend themselves naturally to what jewelry and watch designers seek to express.
In short: expressing one’s personal devotions to God, country and cultural identity by donning precious metal tributes in art always will project wealth, character and style.
