A classic gold coin necklace will never go out of fashion, just ask the hordes of industry insiders that swear by the perennial accessory. Here, we’ve curated the chicest coin necklace options to shop now.
Season after season, we see accessories trends come and go: Square-toe sandals, bright and bold beaded jewellery, pearl hair sliders, padded headbands, anklets and so many more. These fun and ever-changing trends have all elevated our looks with a sense of playfulness time after time. And whilst it’s a fun arsenal to have, fashion insiders will be the first to tell you that before adding in any of those trend-led pieces, they must focus on their fundamentals.
If you look at the necks of your favourite fashion influencers or street style stars you will see one thing in common: layers of gold necklaces in varying lengths and sizes. Amongst this mix of classic accessorising, there will almost always be a gold coin necklace. Why? Because it is one of the simplest and most effective ways of brining both glamour and sophistication to your look, whether that look be as paired back as luxe loungewear or as dressed up as a little black dress.
