I was practically born rocking gold jewelry. I’m not exaggerating…I’ve had my ears pieced since I was six months old (that’s how we Assyrians roll). I’ve been layering gold necklaces since ’88, and I have pictures to prove it. I’m not sure I’m ready to put out those photos on the the interweb just yet, we’re still getting to know each other after all. One day, the time will come. In the meantime, let’s talk about where to buy these damn coin necklaces everyone is wearing lately…because I NEED.

Designed & made in Portugal, Cinco has it’s own take on the coin necklace, taking a step away from the traditional look with cleaner, more simple designs. Favorites: the Ginger necklace (shown in photo) & the Frances necklace.

If you’re on the hunt for a more authentic coin necklace, this is the place to go. All of the pendants have their own personality, coming in different shapes & sizes. I especially love the pieces with the extra detailing. All of them are 18K gold plated and/or solid gold (if you’re REALLY looking to splurge). Favorites: Ottoman Turkish Charm MedallionByzantine Mandorle MedallionMoon Face Pendant.

One of my fav fashion bloggers, Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now, collaborated with Missoma London to create a collection of beautifully designed coin necklaces. Favorites: Roman Arc Coin NecklaceWilliams Rope Medallion Necklace.

A European jewelry & accessory shop, Nalin studios releases a new limited time piece every single month. That said, their shop only consists of a handful of items at a time, but each is designed with perfection (& they have a bit of a romantic flair). Favorites: Rose Necklace, L’amour Necklace.

Based in Charleston, Hart is known for their statement earrings (especially the tassels!). They have a small but glorious collection of coin & locket necklaces too…and they’re really reasonably priced. Favorites: Janus Lucky Coin Necklace.
