Everything You Need To Know When Buying Minimalist Jewellery

| 5 min read

Minimalism has grown in popularity over the last few years. More and more people are adopting a minimalist lifestyle that focuses on intention and values the concept of 'less is more', and jewellery is often included in this trend.

WHAT IS MINIMALIST JEWELLERY?

Accessories are created to enhance a look, not overpower it, and that's what minimalist jewellery does. Subtle and chic designs often make the largest statements, and many people opt for timeless, easy-to-wear pieces that fit any occasion.

Typically, minimalist jewellery has dainty designs, clean lines and subtle colours, with popular pieces including metal bangles, chains, stud earrings and Gold or Silver rings.

Affordability, effortless styling and timelessness are key elements of the less-is-more approach. This approach uses fewer materials and simple concepts to focus on the smaller details without compromising on quality.

Despite its connotations, the minimalist jewellery trend is about freedom rather than constraint; attention to high-quality, subtle details results in elegant, trendy pieces that not only last for years but stay on-trend throughout that time, too.

Anyone can wear minimalist jewellery, so if you want to accessorise with exceptional, timeless pieces, explore this handy guide to buying minimalist jewellery.

KEY MINIMALIST JEWELLERY ELEMENTS

Silver Jewellery

If you are ready to embrace the minimalist jewellery trend, the best way to start is by building a capsule wardrobe of staple pieces. This collection could feature rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets made of quality metal (such as Gold or Sterling Silver).

When choosing your pieces, consider clean, simple, and high-quality designs. But if you are still trying to figure out where to start, here are a few elements to look for when building your collection.

Clean Lines

9K Gold bangle

Minimalist jewellery often features clean lines. These can be classic pieces such as a signature bangle or a simple chain.

Jewellery like this 9k Gold bangle offers a straightforward silhouette that quietly exudes luxury. It's versatile enough to be easily customised and provides enough charm to be worn as a standalone piece.

Earrings

Embodying the less-is-more approach, simple but chic designs like these can have a considerable impact. Think geometric shapes, subtle symbols and classic cuts (if you opt for gemstones).

These earrings in Gold Plated Sterling Silver have a distinct shape that isn't overpowering, so they can sit alongside an outfit rather than smother it. Plus, the timeless golden colour offers a wealth of styling opportunities.

Subtle Gemstones

Amazonite Necklace

When it comes to minimalist jewellery, many pieces are made of just metal. However, the additional lustre of gemstones can add a level of depth to an otherwise simple piece.

Although gemstones are entirely optional, they offer texture, personality and even colour if you prefer. This Peruvian Amazonite necklace has a soft blue hue that is noticeable but understated, proving that adding gemstones doesn't have to cause an imbalance with the rest of your look.

For those still wanting a monochromatic look, however, the sparkle of Diamond is always an advantageous choice.

This Sterling Silver butterfly ring features natural Diamonds and is handcrafted with high-quality metal to ensure its durability. Selecting pieces that are timeless, strong, and expertly designed will allow you to have a collection that is not only intentional but also long-lasting.

OUR TIPS FOR STYLING MINIMALIST JEWELLERY

Minimalist Rings

Styling minimalist jewellery is all about keeping things simple but effective. Wearing one bracelet or a single chain is just the beginning when it comes to styling options; when you have a whole collection of dainty, understated, and elegant pieces, you have the freedom to create countless unique looks you will love.

Here are our recommendations for styling minimalist jewellery:

  • Choose small and subtle pieces to start, such as thin chains and plain bangles

  • Focus on one solid, durable metal for a clean and coordinated look

  • When opting for gemstones, choose colours that complement each other

  • If you decide to layer your pieces, try with just two before adding more
