Using an ancient coin for jewelry can enhance its appeal. Coin jewelry was a status symbol in ancient time and proving wealth and power.People have been making coins into jewelry since the birth of coinage.some ancient coins are rare, many are very common and some of the ancient coins are not to expensive also. Unifying antique with modern is a largely difficult task to pull off in the jewelry world. Most coins that were holed or pierced throughout history were done to be worn around the neck or affixed to an article of clothing.

Wear Your Jewellery Right

Wearing jewellery can make any woman feel beautiful inside and out. But this can also be tricky when you overdo this. Jewellery is meant to complement your outfit and draw attention to your face and not overwhelm your whole look. Jewellery when worn correctly should exude the right amount of style yet still be elegant. So here are some tips on how to wear that simple pearl necklace or your favourite cocktail ring that would make Coco Chanel proud.

You really have to think long and hard about which jewellery can go well with your look. Wearing denim for a casual day out and a crisp white shirt goes well with pearl earrings and a nice leather watch. If you’re going out on a dinner date, pick a nice necklace that will draw attention to your collarbone and neck or a pair of simple drop earrings to draw attention to your face. Shopping for jewellery shouldn’t be as daunting, that’s why there’s your social network to help you with all your fashion emergencies. You can also get some style pointers from celebrity and model Katie Price who recently launched her own accessory line complete with tiaras, bejeweled iPhone cases, and diamante studded accessories that every girl loves that’s why she was awarded as FoxyBingo‘s Celebrity Mum of the Year along with cutie pie former Spice Girl, Emma Bunton. You can also host a DIY jewellery making session with your new-found friends from online bingo. When you get enough fantastic ideas from your friends and favorite celebrities, you can be more confident in wearing them even at work. When you get your accessories on, there’s no stopping you from not only looking good, but also feeling good.

When it comes to wearing jewellery at work, be sure to stick to the classics. A pair of diamond studs or pearl earrings is enough to make a statement. It’s also best to refrain from wearing big hoop earrings when you’re in a corporate environment – remember, you’re not in the club. A simple yet elegant dress watch can add a touch of class for your whole power suit. If you’re still wondering what outfit goes well with what jewellery, you can try visiting Nordstrom for the best fashion picks this season.

According to the World Gold Council, Global gold demand saw an increase of 6% in third quarter 2011, compared to same period in last year. Gold demand in the third quarter of 2011 reached 1,053.9 tonnes equating to US$57.7bn, an all-time high in value terms.

Marcus Grubb, Managing Director, Investment at the World Gold Council commented:

“Unsurprisingly investment demand for gold was a key driver during the third quarter. Increasing levels of inflation, the US credit rating downgrade, a worsening eurozone sovereign debt crisis and the lacklustre performance of many assets drove investors to increase holdings in gold in order to protect their wealth. Given gold’s proven risk mitigation properties, it is likely that investors will continue to seek protection from economic uncertainty, which shows no signs of abating.”

India, the largest jewellery market, experienced a 26% fall in tonnage demand as high and volatile gold prices, at an inauspicious time in the Hindu calendar,15 deterred consumers. A similar reaction was seen across the globe, with markets in the Middle East, South East Asia and the West generating weaker levels of demand in the face of record high gold prices and difficult economic conditions. Exceptions were China, where gold jewellery demand continued on its healthy growth path, Hong Kong, Japan and Russia.
