It is thought that coins are worthless especially when they are not used but in fact these coins are really valuable especially when they are old. Even if your coins are not old and are not worth a lot of money, they are still useful. Coins can be used for making fascinating and fashionable jewelry pieces instead of being thrown. Coin jewelry is considered to be one of the hottest trends that are presented to us in this year as many coins appeared to be used for creating different items such as hair accessories, belts and even dresses. So, you may now appreciate the value of the coins that you have to start making use of them instead of leaving them without being used. There are two major types of coin jewelry; one of them is the whole coin jewelry and the other one is the cut coin jewelry. These two types of coin jewelry have not recently appeared as they have been existing a long time ago since the coins have first appeared.
There are different coins that can be used for making jewelry as we can use the coins of our country that are used at our present time, shipwreck coins and we can also use the coins that we bring from other countries and are kept with us as souvenirs. Whole coins are used for creating different pieces of jewelry. The Egyptians decorate the suits of their soldiers through using medals that look like coins and we as civilians use coins for creating amazing pieces of jewelry.
It is not necessary for the coin jewelry pieces to be made in the same way without changes as there are some coins which are used the same as they are without being changed while there are other coins which are more decorated through adding engravings. There are also other ways for creating coin jewelry such as cutting coins in different breathtaking shapes that are really awesome and can make the different pieces of jewelry especially pendants catchy.
Cut coins are not new in the world of creating coin jewelry as they first appeared in the 1600’s when they were cut by men for impressing their lovers. Cutting coins turned from just a nice way for impressing beloved women to a craftsmanship that presents to us unique pieces of jewelry that can fascinate anyone who sees them.
The whole coins or those who are cut and pierced are left the same as they are with their base metal or plated with other metals such as gold, silver or both of them to make the coins more elegant and precious. The coin jewelry pieces are also encrusted or surrounded by diamonds which makes the jewelry pieces more fascinating and impressive for you and others who see your coin jewelry. Coin jewelry is available in different forms as you can find coin earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces and even money clips to choose what you need.
Making coin jewelry is not difficult and does not require having specific talents which makes it easy for you to create your coin jewelry on your own without the need to purchase it. It is a perfect idea to present the coin jewelry that you create as a nice, unique and catchy gift to those whom you love and really appreciate.
