Meet Erin Flynn

In early 2021, Designer Erin Flynn launched her eponymous brand, Erin Flynn Fine Jewelry, and a year later was selected as the exclusive jewelry designer for the 74th Emmy Awards® Giving Suite™ where her custom pieces were on display for celebrity presenters and winners as part of the Television Academy Foundation’s annual Emmy’s participation. She was also recently commissioned to design and create a ring to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of The Godfather, available in limited distribution this spring, and will be offering an exclusive Pickleball Bracelet to meet the growing demand for reimagined jewelry that is both active and elegant.

Reflecting her own values, Erin’s collections are home to ethically sourced jewelry that is timeless, yet playful. Her elegant and unique pieces are meant to be personal classics that will become part of the wearer’s story and inspire a smile every time they’re worn. Her original pieces can be seen at boutiques and regional brands across California and the country. 

Whether designing custom jewelry, reimagining heirloom pieces, or bringing to life designs in her collections that have purpose open to the interpretation of the wearer, Erin designs with an approach that lays bare the emotional connection to jewelry through which she finds joy. All her work is inspired by an ethos of celebrating the moments and milestones that are both mundane and unconventional rather than prescribed by an arbitrary life playbook. Everyone’s story should be celebrated, every day.

In addition to her signature lines which include Megawatt, Champagne Bubbles, Defining Lines and Heritage, her bespoke portion of offerings brings Erin’s initial love for the process full circle. She shares the intensely personal nature of designing her own jewelry with her clients by drawing out what they really want – stylistically, symbolically, and practically – and giving them staple pieces for their jewelry wardrobe.


Erin learned to make jewelry in her 20s from her artistic mother. Her first meaningful project was handcrafting earrings for her bridesmaids. The sense of connection, meaning and joy the work sparked made a mark, and the dream of starting her own line was firmly planted, though she knew attaining that dream would involve a journey. Erin began by diving into the corporate life she prepared and planned for, and it served her well, featuring many success stories. Every decision she made during that time, however, only further clarified her hunch that following her gut was forever the best strategy. It led her jump into new worlds, from leading a mergers and acquisitions team in travel media to the investment banking industry, and once leaving it all to travel the globe.

Eventually, if not inevitably, Erin reached a point where she was ready to take the biggest risk of all - to follow her passion as a jewelry designer - and left her corporate life to work for Tiffany & Co. and Cartier to learn the industry from the ground up. With these experiences and the confidence to turn a lifelong hobby into a viable business, following her mantra always start with yes, Erin worked to create a line of everyday luxury pieces meant to be worn, cherished, and passed down as markers of a life lived well. To this day, Erin makes decisions with her heart first and has prioritized experiences and passions over paths of preconceived hallmarks. She intends for her pieces to carry that spirit, marking the passage of time and celebrating personal moments for her collectors in a way that only their own lives can.

Erin thrives on continuing to perfect her trade and regularly attends industry-leading gem and stone shows to source her materials and keep abreast of industry developments and market trends. She is also involved with the Women’s Jewelry Association in helping to grow memberships in Northern California.  Her enduring inspiration is the satisfaction of being able to do what she loves for a living while making a difference in people’s lives and happiness. Erin currently lives with her two young sons in San Francisco.
