In jewelry as with any other luxury industry subcategory, we tend to remain at the edge of our seats in anticipation of what the “next big thing” will be. So far in a span of two years, we have seen trends go from charmed bracelets to crystal beaded bracelets. No matter how unexpectedly these styles have hit us, no one has an expectation that the interchangeable coin pendant would be next in line. The interchangeable coin, which many expect to be the next hit in the fashion-led jewellery market, is set to be the next big craze because of its ability to be versatile.
At the largest jewelry exhibitions, many brands show and feature this product. At the exhibition some of the champions of this style include Hot Diamonds, Nikki Lissoni, Unique Jewelry with Mi iMenso and My Mundi.
In order for the concept of the interchangeable coin pendant to be successful, the necklace needs to break down into three individual parts: the long-length chain, the pendant or holder and the coin. Each maybe sold separately and made completely interchangeable. This would offer up endless combinations, and because of this the trend has that magic ingredient needed for all jewellery phenomena – the opportunity for repeat business through a collectible product.
As with most jewellery crazes, this product has already begun to gather up a strong following already in Europe. As this trend reaches its tipping point, it will be the U.S market which will bring about this wave, try not to get left behind.
Here are just a few examples:
