Houston jewelry stores share history of coin jewelry

  1. 1. Houston Jewelry Stores Share History Of Coin Jewelry When making reference to coin jewelry Houston jewelry stores have it divided into two completely different categories: whole coins and cut coins. This article is going to offer you basic information and the origin of both types. It is believed that whole coin jewelry has been in existence since the very first coin was invented. It has been said that the Egyptians would use medal similar to coins of their day to decorate their soldiers. With all the traveling that both soldiers and civilians do the coins of other nations have been a great souvenir to take back home. Jewelry stores in Houston have seen travelers with coins that are finished completely and some with added engravings that they wear as necklaces and rings. Houston jewelry stores refer to coins that are not whole as cut coins. The cut coins are believed to have been seen around the 1600s when men would pierce and cut coins in order to impress their loved ones. Since the 1600’s cutting coins has become a serious form of artisanship that is currently producing some truly unique pieces of jewelry that are simply works of art. The artisan will begin cutting a coin by piercing the piece with many holes. These small holes enable them to cut the interior figure out of the coin, which makes a unique one of a kind coin. Once the holes are in place then a fine tooth jeweler’s saw is inserted into the holes and worked until the main figure of the coin is released. When the main figure is released, you are able to see the central figure from the coin featured by itself. The coins can then be left in the base metal or most individuals elect to cover the figure in either gold or silver and in some cases both. The two-tone finish allows the intricacies of both the coin and the artisanship to be shown. At this point, the coin is ready to be taken to the final form as a pendant, earrings, tie tacks, money clips or even rings. Jewelry stores in Houston have seen a rise in demand for coin jewelry. At the present time, both the whole coins and cut coins are very popular. Many individuals will purchase the coins and use them as a beautiful and unique accessory. Some use the pieces to show their national pride while others will place them in a collection that specifically fits their hobby or interests. Some consumers choose to wear the pieces that have been formed into the shape of butterflies, delicate flowers, and bold suns. The pieces can be worn as pendants and earrings. There is one coin that stands out above all the rest, it is from Barbados, and is the ten dollar coin which features Neptune with a trident in his hand. When tourists want to make a purchase that shows their national pride, the Irish and Polish coins are popular along with the American coins. With the state quarters, Americans along with travelers are able to show their state pride.
  2. 2. There are a large number of coins that coincide with particular interests and hobbies, so if you collect cats, dogs, pandas, or most sports then there is a coin out there that will match most interests. These are only a few of the thousands of cut coin jewelry that are available online and in your local Houston jewelry stores. So it does not matter if it is a whole coin that captivates your attention or one that is cut and designed by a craftsman with intricate, beautiful details, coin jewelry is a very unique and a true form of art.
