We’re finally starting to see more detailed and colourful jewellery creep back into the scene. For me, it’s been a long winter of super minimalist pieces, and admittedly I’ve jumped on this bandwagon too now wearing a variety of minimalist gold pendants and choosing gemstones which neutral colours rather than bright and vibrant colours.
With all this minimalism and modernism things have started to look a little boring and often a little too similar, but there’s one trend I’ve seen getting bigger that’s taking jewellery back towards a more detailed aesthetic. This isn’t a vintage aesthetic, but perhaps a more ancient one as this trend is all about ancient coins. Funnily enough, I feel these coin pendants, and rings look somewhat refreshing when a few years ago I would have thought they looked a bit old fashioned when very simple jewellery was in vogue.
I’ve seen this trend mostly with pendant necklace as they make a good size pendant and layer well with existing styles you might own. One thing that I would advise is to check out the size and see if you can compare the pendant to a real coin. I often picture jewellery to be much bigger based on any online photos, and this will help with any disappointment you might have.
