New gold-plated coin pendant series
We are proud to give our followers a glimpse of some of the new designs we will be adding to our site over the next week! This brand new range features a number of the most popular ancient coin pendants in gold plated matte-finish versions! Naturally the entire pendant material is sterling silver and the quality of these pieces matches our the rest of our items and our reputation.
This range took quite a bit of research. As many jewelry fans may know, gold plated silver is quite frequently a disappointment (particularly for pendants) as the increased contact with the skin (acidity of sweat, perfumes etc) generally is known to cause gold plating to fade quickly. However from our experience the best way to do this was to allow the silver meander mount to shield and protect the inner coin from high contact. The result was even better than we expected due to the beautiful contrast created between the vivid gold color (on the sand-blasted matt coins) and the glossy silver external Greek-Key bezel!
Let us know what you think!
