Brenda Kang, the owner of Revival Vintage Jewels & Objects, a by-appointment-only showroom that deals in precious objects from the past, has seen a lot of beautiful pieces throughout her 23-year career. After all, she was a senior jewellery specialist at Christie’s where she worked for over 15 years, before starting her own business in Singapore.
“I came across these beautiful clocks and pocket watches while sourcing for jewellery stock for my store. I love them as they remind me of a simpler time — an era without digital devices by your bedside or your desk where aesthetics and design were just as important as function,” says Kang.
Her pieces are sourced from both shops and collectors, and from places as far away as Geneva, London and New York, and for the most part, Kang is unwilling to part with these exquisite objects. “I’m happy to keep them for a bit longer,” she says.
