An Elegant Day-To-Night Fashion Accessory
From my personal collection-- I have in my collection genuine ancient Roman and Greek coin jewelry set in 18 KT gold. But, when in 1970’s , I spotted in one of N.Y. stores a collection of CINER ancient coin replicas jewelry, I was hard pressed to believe that I am looking at a custom jewelry. Being a fan of most of the Ciner jewelry, I had purchased some pieces.
Since Bulgari had introduced ancient coin jewelry in 1950, updating its designs ever since, Ciner had designed their own collection of the genre custom jewelry, beginning in the 1970’s. Their artistry had resulted in impeccably designed pieces, crafted in high quality heavily gold plated base metal, the best quality rhinestones, down to a perfect reproduction of the ancient coins.
Such is the case with the exquisite ancient Roman coin necklace offered here. The replica Roman coin is set in an octagonal premium gold open back base. The golden frame is encrusted with round brilliant Swarovski crystals and is suspended from a heavy Cuban link chain with a box clasp closure. The clasp is marked with the CINER signature. It is an elegant day-to-night fashion accessory, both for a business and evening wear.

About CINER: It was not until 1932 that CINER, a renowned designer of fine jewelry since 1892, had switched their production to a high end fashion jewelry. However, ever since, they have maintained the high standards not only of their spectacular designs, but have used only rich enameling, heavy metals and premium gold and silver- tone plating, assuring substantial feel and the longevity of their jewelry. Their jewelry, many of which successfully imitate fine jewelry, is known for being incrusted with the finest quality of glass beads, crystals and stones by Swarovski and their imitation pearls are produced in Japan. In the past several years, CINER began using semi-precious stones in the fashion jewelry and it remains in high demand among the collectors. Ciner jewelry is considered an art and their vintage fashion jewelry is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s permanent Fashion Department collection. They have also been commissioned to create costume jewelry for the Museum’s Gift Shop. Today, Ciner is the only surviving company from those wonderful postwar years that saw the emergence of very fine costume jewelry. It is family owned and operated company designing and producing their look of real and quality jewelry in the heart of New York City!
