As anyone with an Instagram knows all too well, coin jewelry pervaded the zeitgeist in 2018. Celebrities and “it” girls, alike, adorned their necks with lightweight metal discs meant to look like money—breathing new life into the layered jewelry trend that’s endured for years on end. Though the shell jewelry movement threatened to upend coin jewelry’s reign, it turns out the two aren’t mutually exclusive, after all. Both coin jewelry and shell jewelry are making their way into 2019—offering us a veritable plethora of statement jewelry to choose from.

This summer’s coin jewelry trend isn’t the far cry from last year’s you might expect. Coin pendants still abound, leaving minimalists with plenty of ways into the continued trend. But 2019’s coin jewelry movement has seen some maximalist remixes, too. Heavy coin chokers are on offer—so are lengthy chain necklaces, crafted from coin-covered string upon coin-covered string. Now that the aughts have crept into our day-to-day, coin belts are seeing some traction too. As are coin statement earrings—and layered necklaces that capitalize on both the coin jewelry trend and its competitor, the shell jewelry trend, at once.

All this is to say: Your favorite retailers have ensured that it’s never too late to hop aboard the coin jewelry bandwagon. If last year’s trend came and went before you had a chance to wrap your sartorial mind around it, you’re in luck, because you still have a whopping season (who knows—maybe even more) to embrace coin jewelry in all its shiny glory.
