Understated yet fully capable of impressing, minimalist jewelry captures the classic with plenty of trending charm. But how do you master the I'm-stunning-without-even-trying look? You've come to the right place.

So, what is minimalist jewelry? A popular fashion fixture, minimalist jewelry includes delicate, clean, simple designs with a few basic elements. It's the unassuming accents that enliven your look, the subtle sparkle beneath the sleeve.

How to style minimalist jewelry

There are no hard-and-fast rules for flaunting your ultra-fine jewelry, but some basic how-tos can help you calibrate.

  1. Start with a favorite: Whether that one thin ring, slim chain or simple studs you never take off, invest in solid gold styles that go with everything.
  2. Lightly Layer: From the earring, wrist and ring stack to nesting necklaces, add to your collection with stunning yet simple styles that create interest without undoing your low-key look.
  3. Play with color and shape: Lightweight chains with a diamond bar or round pendant add intrigue while a colorful gemstone pendant or single-stone ring catches the eye.

Best jewelry material for everyday wear

Minimalist pieces are perfect for everyday wear. So what materials make your favorite styles minimal yet mighty?

Gold is a classic choice for everyday jewelry. It's strong and won't tarnish. If you're looking for something sturdy but more affordable, try sterling silver. Hypoallergenic metals make regular wear a cinch, such as titanium or stainless steel.
