I agree 110%. My wife is like yours. I have given her thousand dollar gold necklaces that collect dust. She won't take off that Chi-Rho necklace though...... Now I am a weekend woodworker as well and have wax products in my woodshop. Would a simple beeswax correct my problem?
Is the coin is a simple bezel, with the back side of the pendant open (the coin touching her skin)? In this case perhaps clear nail polish would be the best thing, applied after cleaning and thoroughly drying the coin. RenWax (petroleum distillates) is probably not a great thing to have in contact with skin. Who knows what metals are in that alloy too-- some might not be the friendliest things when mixed with sweat, oil, and skin. All the more reason to seal it.
If clear nail polish is too shiny, perhaps beeswax on the front of the pendant and nail polish on the back would be good.
yes, renaissance wax, it does more than protect and revive furniture, leather, paintings, metals, marble, ivory, etc. I use it on all my ancient coins and antique metals for years and no problems yet!
I like this approach and believe this is how I will address the problem. Thank you.
I do have some. Thanks @Kentucky
Maybe try it on a test coin first.
Ear oil works too...
I am not real sure why I liked this one.... Probably because it gave me a grin.
