Glamour, Tatler, Vogue and Wonderland to name but a few are just some examples of the prestigious press Violet Darkling has recieved over the years, gaining them celebrity fans such as Rihanna, Jessica Szohr and Bip Ling. My Flash Trash just had to have some.
The genius behind the beauty of Violet Darkling is Louisa Richwhite. Louisa derives her inspiration from "darkness" , her childhood in New Zealand and all things nocturnal, which is evident in her elegant yet eclectic designs; skulls and pink gems, wolves with saphires for eyes. Louisa bas said that she has a desire to make life just a little more magical, and there is no denying she has done just that!
Rihanna making her Violet Darkling ring the epitome of edge with her bold hair and extravagant clothing, though the beautiful thing about Violet Darkling is that the jewellery speaks for itself. No matter how plain an ensemble you sport, a dose of Violet Darkling will instantly add edge, glamour and unique charm. Whether it be a necklace, bracelet, ring or even a pair of cufflinks, VK simultaneously remains stylish yet avante garde, gorgeous yet gothic and elegant yet dark.
Violet Darkling is one of our favourite unisex designer jewellery brands, and definitely one of the most distinctive. Wolves, Foxes, Spiders and Skulls are all made delectably delicious once combined with the delicate details and beautiful gems.
Black Rhodium, Rose gold, gold, sterling silver, yellow gold, blue Topaz, Citrine, Amethyst, and Tourmaline are some of the ingredients Violet Darkling use to conjure up such a definitive collection of intriguingly unique pieces. Offering suave cufflinks for men, as well as some equally masculine necklaces and rings - we can definitely think of a famous few that would make a gold owl necklace on dark brown waxed leather string look incredibly enticing, especially if piled on with some spider pendants, the famous Fossa designs and silver skulls.
It’s the juxtaposition that makes Violet Darkling so iconic, and their unique formula of gothic, glamour and modern style. The smooth, shiny, clean texture of the pieces lends itself a refreshingly modern aesthetic, as do the brightly coloured gems chosen to impose as eyes and bones for the delicate designs, though the fundamental foundations of the collections are primarily gothic, dark but beautiful. My Flash Trash have a feeling that the Brontë sisters would have loved to walk around the marshes flaunting the skull pendants, and wearing the Fossa ring while writing their next gothic installment of novels.
Though we’d prefer to wear them with a black dress to an event, or to make our jeans and jumper combination a little bit more exciting. Whether you need to dress up a day to day ensemble, or get the finishing touch for that red carpet worthy dress, Violet Darkling is at your service with. Their pieces are the perfect conversation the starter, the perfect eye catcher, the instant style updater. So, what will it be for you? A skull with a bow on a ring, or a wolf with purple eyes on a necklace? Get shopping.
