“It is only the modern that ever becomes old-fashioned.” —Oscar Wilde
It’s no secret that designers use history as inspiration for the latest trends, with shapes and styles cycling endlessly though collections. You can never really move forward without looking back. This week on The Buy we take a look back at old-fashioned necklaces, using literature as our guide. With whimsical detailing like coins, compasses, and mirrors, what better way to add some olde world charm to your outfit than with a classic necklace?
Here are some of our favourites, inspired by everything from pirates to adultery to a suicidal young man in love, all available in Toronto.
