Great F. Scott!

Along with this set of vintage coat buttons came a revelation -
Horn buttons don't have to be horn colored.  They are dyeable!

While from the correct era, and in a lovely shade of blue, 
these seem a bit plain for Jay, Zelda, and friends.

When The Great Gatsby comes out on May 10 
let's keep our eyes open for roaring '20s buttons and other fancy fashion details. 

Based on the spectacular number of sequins and jewels in the trailer alone, 
an Oscar nomination for the costume designers seems to be in the (little beaded) bag.

Here's a Fun Fact: buttons made of antler are not considered horn. They are classified as bone buttons. Although buttons made of deer hooves would be in the bone category.
