Be it vintage apparel, historical cafés or heritage jewellers, there’s always something so fascinating about brands that take us back to the days of yore. Despite the passing fads and fancies that dominate this era of social media — where everyone is constantly on the lookout for what’s new and trending — these establishments have remained steadfast to their signature style.

Even in Singapore, a young nation at only 51 years old, we have a number of old-school local jewellers dating back to as early as 1919. Offering timeless designs that are as (or even more) elegant than their younger counterparts’, these 5 iconic labels are testament to the saying “old is gold”.
