It’s fate! I was searching online to find the most perfect coin necklace several months ago because I have become a little obsessed with them lately. You know how google is. After scouring several websites not finding the exact one I was looking for, I gave up. Well what do you know. Up popped an ad on Facebook for coin jewelry from Jane Winchester. You can only imagine what caught my eye first. The fact that the company name had the word WINCHESTER in it was enough for me.
“A Jane Winchester piece is a talisman for milestone moments and a reminder to focus on all you hope to achieve in life.” Jane Winchester
I love having a piece of jewelry that has a deep meaning. Every time I look at that piece, it reminds me of why I have it in the first place. Jane Winchester designed her pieces taking inspiration from gypsy coin jewelry of the 1900s…. which meant different things: wealth, prosperity, and showing generosity to others. Jane Winchester realizes that money and things aren’t what is important. Life experiences, good or bad, are what makes us who we are. Find a new love, having a baby, or losing a spouse by death or divorce are all major life changes that affect us all. She designed her jewelry around life experiences. They are really the perfect gift for yourself or for someone who has a significant milestone in their own lives.
Jane Winchester has several other great pieces, but I am obsessed with her original coin pendants. They come in two different sizes… the original and the small. All of them have different meanings: Forever, Free, Love, Lucky, Peace, Joy, Strong, Protect.
I love that they can be dressed up or down. She has several different types of chains and she even sells sets with your choice of a coin and a omega wire. (I’ve had my wire necklace for YEARS. I get asked all of the time where I got it but quite frankly, I don’t remember. These wire necklaces look very similar to mine.)
I decided on the Forever Small Pendant Coin and I FREAKING love it! And the 16 ” chain with bead detail to go with it. I sometimes wear it on my old wire necklace or wear them both together because I like the layered look.
OK… remember I said all of her coins have different meanings. I LOVE the look of the small Peace coin and almost went with that one. BUT… as soon as I read the meaning of the Forever coin, and saw what was on it, I was hooked.
Directly taken from Jane Winchester’s website:
“Forever find your way home to me – forever my friend, forever finding the true North to your life. This coin pendant is an emblem for finding your way when lost and the certainty that you will end up in the right place. Life is full of choices, roads less traveled and bumps along the way. What is meant to be gets a little help from the firm belief that you will find your way to happiness and home.”
Is this not THE MOST perfect thing for me and our current situation? ???? (If you have no clue what I am talking about, check out our YouTube video that explains it all. But don’t judge the quality as it’s janky as hell, because it’s our first one. ????) We completely believe that we are always the exact place we need to be and there are signs EVERYWHERE guiding us and leading us in the right direction. Just pay attention. If you follow them, you will always find happiness. That meaning just hit home with me. And FOREVER… when I look and wear that necklace, I will remember this time of my life.
Jane Winchester coins are such a great gift idea for a loved one going through a hard time. And don’t forget to give gifts to yourself, too, to symbolize that event. After all, those things make you the person you are today. Check out her website and all of the different pieces she has created. They are all so very special.
