What could be cooler than discontinued coins coming back into circulation as stunning coin necklaces?! Feast your eyes on these gorgeous upcycled coin necklaces by RUBY. These trendy pieces are absolutely perfect for everyday wear. We love the idea of coin necklaces and are very excited to announce that these 5 beautiful pieces are up for grabs. Read on to find out how you can enter to win your favourite one in our new giveaway with RUBY.
We were taken from the moment we spotted these gorgeous RUBY coin necklaces. RUBY is an independent line of beautiful lingerie and accessories from Cape Town, South Africa. The upcycled coin collection was designed by RUBY’s founder, Robyn Lidsky.
There is just something so nostalgic about coins. Robyn likens it to the memory of walking to the sweet shop to buy candy with your first pocket money. More than that, she says this collection was inspired by the rich history of vanquished empires, forgotten rulers and the famous events that these coins commemorate.
“Coin design is a highly skilled and considered craft that draws on leading artisans, influential artistic themes and the relevant cultural elements of each era.”
We think the necklaces are awesome, and love that all the coins have been selected for their intricate designs, historical relevance, handsome typography, or interesting engraving. The chosen coins are then repurposed into the most incredible jewellery. To become necklaces each coin goes through a two-step polishing process. The coins are then top-mounted with antique fittings. This allows the necklaces to be reversible, perfect for when you feel like showing off the flip side of the coin.
Although based in South Africa, RUBY is representing all corners of the globe with this Classic Coin Collection. Therefore we are pleased to say this competition is open internationally!

I LOVE all the Ruby jewelry and would be proud to wear any piece, but I think number 2 is my favorite with the ship as I want to travel to new places far away and see and experience other cultures!!! So, my vote is for number 2 !!!
I have “liked” both Ruby and Upcycle That on Facebook. I love all the coin necklaces but #1 is definitely my favorite. No matter where you are traveling as long as you have the sun shining down on you the adventure will be wonderful!

I liked them both. I’m so excited to see more upcycling projects! I’m starting an eco-sewing business and love all things repurposed! I think I like the Ruby #1 best for the sun, that it’s from Argentina and I’d love to visit South America, and the scrollwork at the top of the design.
I loved all of them ……but no 5 just takes me by awe
Heart that too tilted and crafted in coins just swipes me off my feet

Hi! I like both Upcycle and Ruby on Facebook. My favorite necklace is number 5!

I am a fan of both pages on FB. Coin 2 will always remind me of my first trip to Sweden, sailing on the Baltic Sea to Birka, which is an island where Vikings were merchants before our time.

I stumbled across this site trying to distract myself from my insomnia and I’m glad I did! I’ve liked both pages and will have to say that there’s something about #2 that draws me in but I can’t take my eyes off #4. I love the coin necklace idea. I have 2 in my necklace collection and recently saw this amazing art collection made from coins at the Indianapolis Art Center. So much history, I love it!
All are cute-No 1 and 3 are my favorites. Love the idea too!
