The Roulette Coin Necklace | Gold
Part of the allure of vintage and antique pieces I've come across is that many do not have a specific origin or source that persists after decades or centuries. This makes the purpose behind these "oui" and "non" coins even more mysterious - who would seek out creating such relics with a simple "yes" or "no" stated on a textured, round coin? And who would wear them?
My love for the French language and the utter combination of such a flowery tongue with these clean coins drew me to collect a stash of them - and upon rediscovering them in my supplies, I felt that now was the right time to send them out into the world. Unlike many of my pieces which are inspired by mythology and female figures, this necklace is all about YOU.
Two coins hang with substantial weight on an antique gold bar chain, one facing out with a "oui" and the other showing its smooth back. Turn the necklace around, and the "non" is visible while the first coin is now just a flat-back. The magic of this necklace is that YOU choose how YOU want to wear it. Which side will you show to the world?
