It’s no secret that we live in a world where being up-to-the-minute is everything.
Sometimes, though, we all feel the need to stop, let technology progress without us for a few seconds, and grab hold of something that’s not likely to change. That’s where Brook&Lyn Jewelry comes in. With statement-making Agate body necklaces, bracelets, and more in a multitude of dazzling colors and motifs, you’ll be a part of something that’s been around much longer than Facebook. Hint: Agate played a large role in Bronze-age Minoan culture. And it stands to reason that Brook&Lyn would have longevity in mind, as the label is a spin-off of designer Mimi Jung’s online vintage boutique.
But that’s not to say that this jewelry is stuck in the past. Quite the opposite, in fact—the line consists of unusual Agate styles that had been overlooked in recent years, in spite of their thoroughly one-of-a-kind beauty. And the overall styling is something quite new: Fresh, but not trend-obsessed. Simple, but not tired. A little bit avant-garde, a little bit organic, and sure to turn heads in any setting—a rare accomplishment for such a young brand.
In fact, Brook&Lyn Jewelry is not even a month old, making its strong aesthetic even more refreshing. In a world of WiFi that’s here one minute and gone the next, in-and-out cell phone signals, and (gasp!) even blogs that come and go, it’s nice to see something that looks ready to stand the test of time. Or, in the case of the Agate itself, something that already has.
Available from Brook&Lyn Jewelry, priced $145 – $285.
