 The Fusion of Art and Treasure

Coin jewelry is Richard Korwin’s legacy, passion, future. Richard believes in the power and eternity of coins: their beauty, artistry, history, mystery, and value. His vision gives those qualities new life in – and as – jewels. For women, the newest idea is the stunning 18K Diamondback Collection, unique in coin jewelry for both concept and design, the Diamondbacks feature reversible diamond coin pendants in the many shapes of world coins.  Inspired by the large cocktail ring trend are Richard’s Seychelles coin rings, influenced by the tropical botanicals of the Seychelles Islands.  For men, handsome and strong money clips and cuff links in gold and sterling silver are modern classics.
