Coin jewelry has been around since the invention of coins but this set takes it to an exquisite level.
Using a REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE faux gold coin as the centerpiece, the necklace link chain is heavily gold-plated and accented with clear crystal rhinestones. The coin on both the necklace and the matching clip-back earrings is circled with more crystal rhinestones.
The necklace measures 18 inches around. The coin center is 1 inch high. The necklace has a secure self-lock closure. The earrings are 1 inch across with secure clip backs. (A bit of verdigris on the back of one earring is mostly gone.)
Several high-end jewelry companies made coin jewelry. This set is unmarked but shows great quality in every way. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1980s.
