The idea of expressing yourself can sometimes seem complex, but it doesn’t have to be. With jewelry, we can reveal a lot about who we are and what we value. Personally, I appreciate peace, simplicity and quality over quantity. I opt for dainty, elegant jewelry pieces that can be worn time and time again. If you’re anything like me, you might consider yourself a minimalist. Minimalist jewelry is meant to be ‘barely there’ and enhance the outfit without being overpowering. It is a timeless fashion trend that is perfect for anyone at any age. 

The simplicity of minimalism is appealing, but it can also make gift-giving a challenge. If you are shopping for a friend or loved one, it can be hard to decide what to give without causing unnecessary clutter. With minimalist jewelry, your friend or loved one can be gifted something practical but meaningful. Plus, it is easy to store or can even be beautifully displayed when it is not worn. Whether for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or your special someone, these minimalist pieces have the right amount of meaning and simplicity. Follow this guide to find the next piece of jewelry for the minimalist in your life.

What is minimalist jewelry?

Minimalism is all about simplicity. A minimalist is someone who likes to practice a natural lifestyle and only keeps true necessities. To eliminate clutter, they will solely save meaningful items. When it comes to minimalistic decor, lifestyle, or fashion, less really means more. As a minimalist, there are a few categories my jewelry choices fall into. Small pops of color, clean lines, and delicate pendants embody the true meaning of minimalism. Below, I show my personal favorite pieces that are elegant, but basic, that any minimalist will fall in love with.  


Keep it simple and dainty with the Wishbone String Bracelet.


Small Pops of Color

Although we are minimalist, it does not mean we do not like color. Little gems full of color can bring some brightness into the clean and simple piece of jewelry. Minimalist jewelry is the opposite of bold, statement pieces, but it can still capture your unique expression with beautiful gems. The Mini Key of F Earrings are the perfect balance of chic gold with tiny crystals. 

Another option if you think the minimalist in your life would like just the right amount of color in their jewelry piece is the Jeweled Heart Pendant. The Jeweled Heart Pendant is my absolute favorite piece. It is the cutest heart with beautiful red and crystal gems. What I love about it is the daintiness, an example of being ‘barely there’. 


The Mini Key of F Earrings pair perfectly with the Key Charm Ring - while still bringing in the minimalistic charm.


Clean Lines

Minimalists' unique sense of style typically focuses on clean lines and simple shapes. Their design choices bring a feeling of calm and purpose. The Sphere + Wand Locket creates peace with its classic look. My favorite part of the Sphere + Wand Locket is the hidden secret message. With the clean and chic exterior, it is not until closer inspection you see the locket. Within the locket, you can personalize a message to your loved one, bringing even more meaning to the piece. 

When I think of clean lines in jewelry, bar pendants are the first thing that come to mind. The Engraved Bar Pendant is versatile and can compliment any outfit. Although it is small, it still holds plenty of meaning. There are five different engraving to choose from each with their own significance. Choose the engraving that speaks the most to you and hold it close to your heart without overpowering the rest of your style. 


We love to match the Sphere + Want Locket with the Wishbone String Bracelet for the ultimate good fortune.

Delicate Pendants

For even more simplicity in your gift choice, the Wishbone String Bracelet is a delicate piece full of meaning. A wishbone pendant brings good luck to the wearer and the Wishbone String Bracelet brings good fortune in a clean and dainty pendant.

Because of the small size of these delicate pendants, they can easily be layered to express more of your sense of style, while staying minimalist. I think the best way to layer with simple pieces is by choosing the same metal to keep a uniformed look. Also, remember to vary the chains in length to not look too cluttered. Clean and uncomplicated looks are the key ingredients in minimalist jewelry.


Layer the Jeweled Heart Pendant with the "Worth the Chaos" Engraved Bar Pendant for your minimalist friend who loves a good adventure.


Minimalist jewelry is a beautiful choice for those who appreciate quality over quantity. These pieces offer a chance to enjoy the simple things in life while expressing your personal style. Whether you're shopping for a loved one or treating yourself, minimalist jewelry makes for a thoughtful and meaningful gift. So why not add a touch of elegance and simplicity to your collection with one of these timeless pieces?
