Default I want holly willoughby's necklace!

Does anyone know where I can get one in the shops or online?

I can get one made but would rather find a cheap copy, as to get one made is 300 as two half sovereigns and a gold chain will be used.

Pic of the one I mean:

lol

I think there is a massive market for this necklace, who do I approach to get them making it?

Looks like I am going to have to get mine made. Any ideas of which date I should get the sovereigns?

Ask ASOS who specialise in imitating stars and celebs attire.

Or ask Holly nicely if you can borrow it.

Or visit a craft market and approch a jeweller and ask if they can make something similar, or scour websites like www.folksy.com, or www.etsy.com and have a search for jewellery designers for comissions.

Ahr thats great, like you I have been looking everywhere and for ages. I came very close to getting one made but gave up in the end as I wasn't sure on the finish. Plus they wanted 600! Thanks so much for sharing the site. In the end I got a half a sovereign.

Will rolled gold and plated gold go green after awhile? So would have to wear it just for best?

Default Holly Willoughby Vintage Coin Necklace

Theres a vintage necklace similar to Hollys in Mr Allan Jewellers in Wigan. It's also on their website mrallan.co.uk with pictures in the pre-owned section featuring antique half sovereign coins.

Default holly willoughby necklace with 2 coins

Ive bought one from eBay that is gorgeous. Its 2 american coins from a war period so there is a bit of history with the necklace too. Its plated in 24k gold and doesnt fade at all, especially overnight like the cheap ones that are available! I love mine and constantly get compliments! If you search eBay for TWO COIN CELEBRITY NECKLACE 24k PURE GOLD you will find it. Hope this helps x
