This fall, you’re going to see a lot of discs and coins in jewelry designs. I’m ahead of that game, with a collection of 12th century Roman coins my uncle found around Sebastia, that were made into a gorgeous necklace by Federico DeVera. If you (a) don’t have an uncle in the Sebastia area or (b) aren’t friends with Federico DeVera, you can get the next best real thing from Behnaz Sarafpour. The fashion designer has introduced a collection of three necklaces, all made with Arabian coins. This one is the most elaborate, but there are simpler ones that start at $250.
By special order (I love that, since it means not many people will have these!) at 212-242-2343.
