Minimal jewelry has dominated our Instagram feeds and with good reason, what’s more chic than a sliver of gold adorning your neck, dainty gold hoops, or a handful of stackable rings? Even better, minimal jewelry matches with almost everything and leaves plenty of room for layering, mixing, and matching.


Minimal Jewelry Trend

While jewelry trends come and go, you can rest assured that minimal staple pieces will outlast the trend cycle, so you can stock up on pendants, simple studs, and tiny hoops. Consider investing in fine jewelry and plated pieces rather than costume jewelry, not only will they last longer with proper care, they’re also perfect gifts. There’s no better way to celebrate your partner, your friends or even yourself than something shiny, new, and minimal. 


Best Minimal Jewelry Brands

To get you started we’ve rounded up a few brands to check out that you might have spotted on your feed with affordable minimal jewelry pieces and splurge-worthy items worth investing in. We’ve rounded up brands featuring customizable necklaces, mini gold hoops, ear cuffs and plenty of rings to stack. Keep reading to see which minimalist-friendly jewelry brands to shop. 


Bing Bang NYC

Founded in 2002, this NYC-based brand offers dainty and simple gold plated geometric hoops, bracelets, and rings along with pieces with pearl, Swarovski crystals, and tiny accents like moons, zodiac signs, and initials with prices starting around $50. For something even more catered to you or the person you’re gifting they offer custom jewelry including nameplates and engraved rings. 


Lili Claspe

This Cali based brand is a minimalist jewelry dream, chunky gold link chains, and bracelets, simple hoops and anklets to pair with any outfit but be sure to browse their selection of earrings and ear cuffs. For those looking to make a slightly bolder statement but still keep it pretty minimal browse their unique gold hoops with pearl accents or crystal-encrusted fringe earrings. Many of their pieces are 14kt gold plated brass but they also carry fine jewelry worth the splurge, including a selection of subtle flame pendant chokers, lariats, and studs.

While they offer understated hoops, chains, and ear cuffs, there are plenty of pretty earrings accented with butterflies, hearts, moons, and lightning bolts. Be sure to check their fine jewelry section for teeny, tiny hoops and studs, pendant necklaces, and stackable diamond rings. 



The fashion girl favorite offers fine jewelry with pieces crafted from 14 karat gold, sterling silver or gold vermeil with pieces starting around $55. Shop their popular signet rings, chains, tiny pendants or gift something personalized, several pieces are available to be engraved. The brand keeps it simple with hoops, studs and delicate necklaces and rings ideal for mixing and matching. They also offer engagement rings and wedding bands. 



For tiny hoops, barely-there chains and chainrings, this sister brand to Haati Chai is worth checking out. Gift custom pieces like initial studs and hoops, birthstones or nameplate necklaces or some of their standout pearl and precious stone ear cuffs and hoops. Like Mejuri they also offer a selection of classic and minimal engagement rings. Pieces are crafted from solid gold so you won’t have to worry about extra care and can wear them every day. 



This NY- based brand is perfect for classics and staple pieces. Opt for their small but standout earrings, subtle diamond gold rings, pendants on dainty necklaces, or delicate bracelets and anklets. There are also a few pieces with modern accents, think sculptural bracelets and geometric earrings that are still subtle enough for the discerning minimalist.
