When it comes to personifying the art of seduction in a character, the ultimate femme fatales can be found in the fictitious figures known as Mermaids. I know for most of the girls born in my generation, they are children of the Disney Princess era and hold The Little Mermaid somewhere in their heart. Now while Ariel can be classified as somewhat of a recent phenomenon, the mystique and legends of Mermaids are as old as tale telling exist. The Ancient Greeks told tales of the mythical Sirens, dangerous and beautiful creatures who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. This became the foundation for the folklore surrounding Mermaids; whose presence can be found in many fold tales spanning from Europe, Africa and Asia. Their appearance of a beautiful woman's upper body and a fish like tail for their lower half, have inspired a number of trends in fashion. From long wavy hair to the current Seapunk trend, to the most prevalent "ocean and beach" inspired fashions that are a standard for any girl's summer wardrobe.

If there is anything to appreciate about the pieces in our Vintage Chain vault, is their ability to reinvent itself over the trends that come over time by staying classic; much like the evolution from Sirens to the Disney Princess Ariel. This Oscar De la Renta OD004 Chain is a perfect example of combining the song of the Sirens into a timeless wearable piece. Who better than famed designer De la Renta, who hails from the beautiful Carribean island nation of the Dominican Republic to create such a piece. This chain features a tangled fashion with large textured gold links to create a necklace that is reminiscent of a fisherman's net. It is complete with real shells with tiny beads in the centre that represent their pearl; and other opal like beads and stones that represent the omniscience of ocean. This piece is for any woman looking to feel like a siren and want to carry their mystique on their chest; just be warned that men may fall to your allure....don't say we didn't warn you.
