Jewelry is a crucial ingredient to our summer wardrobe. Festive summer baubles are a symbol of celebration– because it’s summer! What’s not to celebrate!? Sure, wearing jewelry to accessorize our gauzy kaftans and swimsuits on the beach may not be practical, but like most other fashion trends, we’re going to do it anyway.

I’m Latin, so wearing statement earrings to the beach (or pretty much anywhere) goes without saying. Although aside from seashell jewelry — a trend that has surely inundated your Instagram feeds as it has mine — there are few statement jewelry lines we can wear that won’t completely tarnish or get ruined by sunscreen and salt water. It’s safe to say that I’ve ruined a lot of jewelry by allowing euphoric summer carelessness to get the best of me.

Brazilian designer Mariah Rovery launched Flex Jewel with this quandary in mind. The name comes from the brand’s ethos; it prides itself quite literally on flexibility. Her interest in creating a line of waterproof jewelry led Rovery to team up with chemists to create an exclusive material. The result is a patented, highly-engineered lightweight resin which is virtually indestructible, as well as 100 percent non-toxic. “I wanted to create something that a woman could wear from the beach to a party without changing,” said Rovery, who uses the energy and colors of Brazil’s beaches as her inspiration for the line.

This inspiration is mirrored almost precisely in her colorful and graphic statement jewels. Flex Jewel is the ultimate feel-good, warm-weather jewelry line whose versatility in both style and function can seamlessly transition you from the beach to a summer wedding. So Rio de Janeiro, we’re ready for you now.
