Eli Halili – Yellow gold necklace with ancient Islamic coin.
“There’s a popular legend that anyone with even just one coin has been kissed by fortune. This idea takes us back to the Roman era when coins were set in gold and silver jewels as a message of prosperity, and it’s still a popular practice today.
Today the value of this kind of ornamentation is on the rise in necklaces, bracelets, earrings and bangles.
Coins that come from old collections, a family’s heirlooms or are out of circulation are an added bonus.
And naturally the nobility of the metal and preciousness of the working methods count as well. The investment is just as good with coins issued from the ‘creative mint’ of contemporary designers. The strength of its symbolism goes hand in hand with its decorative power.” by Maristella Campi
