Good girl gone bad

Hardcore hardware from Flashy Era

There are about 10,000 kinds of awesome coming from the Korean jewelry line Flashy Era. This brand gives a whole new concept to everything we've long loved about jewelry. You may never view the classics -- pearls, ribbons, beads -- the same again. And that's a good thing. What, pray tell, does Flashy Era do to our classical accessories? Behold. 



The brilliance of Flashy Era is the brand's mixture of contrasting materials. We've never seen such a mix of rough and delicate before, and we love it. Expect to see pearls combined with spikes, chains linked to ribbons, zirconia surrounded by oxidized silver, and onyx juxtaposed with gold. 

The resulting look is soft, but with an edge. For extra fun, check out the onyx spike necklace, the single pearl with a protruding spike, and the weapon necklace. Sure, the casual observer will think that you look sweet in Flashy Era. But on closer inspection (yikes! spikes!!) they'll see that you're a force to be reckoned with.

We also love the pieces with the more overt display of tough (see below). 


But perhaps you're more of a lover than a fighter, or you're more demure than daring. Or maybe you just can't wear spikes to work. No problem. There's still plenty from Flashy Era for you to enjoy. The stackable ring and pearl necklaces (all pictured below) still combine soft elements with cool hardware, but it's done in a more traditional and understated way. That is to say: pretty pearls, subtle silvers and totally sans spikes and weapons. 

What does that mean for you? It means that finding something to fit your tastes is beyond easy.
