People have been buzzing for several months about Aerin Lauder's collaboration with jewelry label Erickson Beamon, aptly titled AERIN. South End jewelers M. Flynn are currently stocking select pieces from the 60-item collection and our first impression is gilded and gorgeous. Lauder is an heiress to the beauty giant Estée Lauder, as well as the ruler of her own lifestyle brand which includes a beauty line, home goods, shoes and accessories. The Erickson Beamon collection is inspired by far flung locales and global influences, as well as the vintage jewelry of Aerin's late grandmother Estée Lauder, and retails mostly under $250.
