Punch Like a Lady - The Dressed-Up Knuckleduster

Not your typical family jewels,
yet haute to trot and tough as nails,
the knuckle duster has made a
huge impact on today's jewelry designs.

Alexander McQueen Knuckleduster

As controversial as they are couture,
we saw McQueen debuting this style as early as 2009,
with the company almost being sued by the Hell's Angels for 
"misuse of their trademark winged death's head symbol" in 2010.

The duster drama continues to unfold as the 
purses gain popularity around the world.
In Hong Kong, police warn they may seize your designer goods
should you choose to don them in the nation's airport.

This trend may not have just hatched,
but it certainly is growing and evolving.
You may not even recognize the main inspiration
for some of these more accessible accessories,
but if you look close enough, it's undeniably a knuckle duster.

These cutting-edge creations are a far cry from
their fearsome predecessors.
Enjoy the fun side of fierce

But the diamond in the rough may just be this pleasant paradox from Black Rose Love:

Ok, it's really Cubic Zirconia. But who cares. Love is all you need!

Plus, who knew knuckle dusters could be so practical?
Just look at the way they accent these common housewares:

If you mean business when it comes to coffee,
let them know it's an all-out war if they so much as touch yours.
(for extra pop, go with the lovely blood-splatter design)

Or, you may have heard the tale of
the Porn Star, her Knuckleduster Phone Case,
and her Beaten-up Assistant:

Well, you don't have to grin and bare it to
immolate this pinnacle of back-door royalty.
Get one all of your own!:
(Phone case that is.
You're on your own with the assistant.
And the chiaroscuro career choice.)

I'm keeping it classy with my personal preference:

Pink is always the lady-like option, don'tcha think?
And Ladies, don't forget the power of DIY.

Just incase you were wondering,
the real thing got a makeover too!
