Kimberly Baker’s newest collection takes 7 old adages and transforms them into these gorgeous 18kt gold vermeil or sterling silver coins. “A bold way to glam up jeans and a vest, an original addition to your black cocktail dress, the classic coin, inscribed with the parable, is proof that old fashioned adages are made to be broken by a modern girl.” The only thing more precious than these necklaces are the descriptions of them - pasted below, so i don’t forget.

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” - Whoever said ‘A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ was a tad too complacent. You’ve always known that you can have your cake, eat it too, and sweat it off at the gym later on. So it’s delicious irony that your Bird In Hand necklace has gotten you so far. A bold way to glam up jeans and a vest, an original addition to your black cocktail dress, the classic coin, inscribed with the parable, is proof that old fashioned adages are made to be broken by a modern girl.

“Money is the root of all evil” - Money is the root of all evil. Sadly, it’s also the root of your rent, you’re new coat, your night on the town and your taxi ride home. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Gone are the days of glossy shopping bags full of treats, luckily your favorite accessory is as resourceful as you. Paired with that stunning Grecian gown you’re returning tomorrow, or with the flats you keep in your bag for the long walk home, the Root coin necklace is perhaps the best money you’ve ever spent. And irony is priceless.

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” - You were high school sweethearts. He took you to prom. Your future was all white picket fences, PTA meetings and two car garages. Now that’s all gone. Good riddance! This is your time to stay out too late, embarrass yourself on the dance floor, hit on the bartender and max out your credit cards. Who needs a ¼ carat, pear cut ball and chain, when you’ve got your future mapped out on a gold coin medallion. Fun and wise, just like you, it’s a constant reminder not to put all your eggs in one, dull, old basket.

“Revenge is a dish best served cold” - You tried a homemade voodoo doll. Put a hex on their heads. Badmouthed them to all your friends and posted snarky little tidbits on their myspace page. But like the Haagen Dazs you’ve been medicating with, Revenge is a dish best served cold. And right now you are hot headed. Don’t blow your top, blow out your hair, rock the too tall shoes, and work your metallic clutch and golden Revenge necklace. It’s sharply cut knife will do more than keep away the riff-raff, it will prove that the best revenge is looking great.

“Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” - You made it to the top. You’ve got your own secretary, your own agenda, your own life. Plus you’ve paid off that Neiman’s card. Just like your Cosmo horoscope promised, its smooth sailing from here on out. Treat yourself to a gift, the Gift Horse coin pendant. It’s classic message and Grecian horse, cast in smooth gold reminds you not to look a gift horse in the mouth and to remember what a lucky girl you are.

“All that glitters is not gold” - The guy turned out to be a jerk. The job interview turned out to be a joke. And the Hermes Bag, well that turned out to be a fake. So when they say ‘all that Glitters is not gold’ you say ‘ain’t that the truth’. Still you keep going; all you need is a good pair of boots and your lucky coin necklace. Sparkling but weathered, just like you, it’s inscribed with a stylish reminder that things aren’t always as they appear.

“Birds of a feather flock together” - If birds of a feather flock together, how do you explain your gaggle? There’s Olivia the Owl, so wry and wise. And Bonnie’s a Bluebird, benevolent and bright. In her patent boots and vintage cape, Peggy’s the Peacock of the group. Neurotic Wendy’s always wound-up like a Woodpecker and Emma’s your Eagle, your rock and your strength. So you must be the Magpie with an eye for bright young things, including your brilliant carved coin feather pendant. Its secret message and delicately rendered feather are lovely reminders that the plumage doesn’t matter as long as the bird can fly.
