I have a guideline for buying navette rings, or Revival type styles. Even though the latter is not popular in Singapore, where revival jewellery is seen as old-fashioned, or just “too much” in a day’s work…
Truth be told, my guideline is the Olsen girls. If I cannot imagine the ring on any of Ashley Olsen’s fingers, or the pair of earrings on Mary-Kate’s ears, I cannot find a reason to buy it. I could plaster a dozen photos of the way the sisters wear jewellery here but I refrain (unless you say I should so I don’t appear starstruck). It is embarrassing at my age.
Seeing how fast the social media paradigm is changing our style landscape, perhaps in five or ten years, Singaporean women will realize revival jewellery is not ‘ethnic’ or oldie. They will be able to tell the difference between “too much” and personal style. Or personal style and store-bought style.
A little birdie told us that the shopping paradigm of the future is one of DIY or customizable offerings, and this will be a big wave across both everyday and luxury shopping. The success of Pandora is just the beginning. The brands that last will be the brands that know how to show people how to be personal. We will look at one another and immediately be drawn to the other’s difference (the easiest way I can think to describe this is like when you are in Harajuku), as opposed to convenient labels and… pigeonholes.
Soul is a very lovely thing. It is probably the only thing lovelier than youth. Because all of us (can) have it, and have it for a long time.
