This week on Barnebys we’ve found all the luxury pieces you’ve ever dreamed of – and without the hefty price tag.

Trending in particular are eye-catching gold sovereigns.

Sovereigns of course have their roots in late 1817, where they could be found as the nominal value of one pound sterling. Nowadays, and particularly since 1989, designs of the sovereign have been created specifically to appeal to the many fervent collectors of coins.

These sovereign pieces from John Pye Auctions have been stylishly mounted into rings and pendants. Fashioning coins into jewellery – from pocket watch chains to earrings, bangles and more – is a practice stemming from the 19th century.

Aside from owning a sovereign coin as an investment and piece of history, having one as a piece of jewellery means that it can be admired by all and doesn’t have to sit in a drawer gathering dust.

Gold bracelets are hitting the mark this season, and can be found as curb-links, simple chains, t-bars or fashioned with pendants.

This Bulgari ladies’ quartz watch, made in Switzerland, is a mixture of gold and brown leather. With a cream dial, gold markers and a slot for the date, it’s a fashionable antidote for the cold months ahead.
