5 Vintage Classics Every Girl Should Own

The world's love affair with nostalgia and all things vintage continues unabated, which is good news for those of us who value the charm and history of pre-loved jewellery.

Investing in quality vintage or antique jewellery is a great way to add unique, characterful pieces to your collection. Like the classic little black dress and crisp white shirt in your capsule wardrobe, there are a few vintage jewellery staples that no girl should be without. Here are five vintage jewellery finds that you will still be wearing ten years from now ...

A cameo

A favourite of France's Empress Josephine, the cameo has come to symbolise tradition, sophistication and grace. Cameos can be found on earrings, brooches, pendants and rings. Choose from a range of intricate designs and materials, including shell, glass, coral, lava, jet and amethyst.



Nothing says opulence and style quite like pearls. The key to this look is understated elegance. Team a simple string of pearls or antique pearl drop earrings with a luxurious cashmere sweater or classic suit and channel you inner Jackie O!

A statement brooch

The myth that brooches are only for blue-haired grannies and dowdy cat ladies has long been dispelled. With a bit of creativity, this versatile accessory can add a dash of glamour to your everyday wardrobe. Pin it to your lapel, scarves, headbands and even handbags. Vintage brooches are relatively inexpensive and available in a range of sumptuous designs and materials, so get collecting!


The humble charm bracelet is the perfect way to commemorate those special moments in your life. Add to your collection of whimsical trinkets as the fancy takes you or invest in pieces that represent special events such as the birth of a child, wedding anniversaries, graduations or birthdays. There is an endless choice in beautifully crafted antique and vintage charms, some featuring animals, flowers, horseshoes and hearts.


Whether engraved, adorned with precious stones, heart-shaped or oval, the simple locket is a beautiful as it is timeless. Enclose a photograph of your loved ones and keep them close to your heart.
