If you’re the type of person who loves jewelry simple and easy enough to wear every day, these brands are for you, and you should keep them on your radar. While some of these companies do touch on the latest trends, most of them make timeless pieces that you won’t just wear every day for the rest of the year, but for your whole lifetime. So, no, you shouldn’t feel bad about splurging on a quality, handmade item, especially if you’re supporting a small brand. But not to worry: we’ve included plenty of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, and anklets at every price point, so you can keep your wallet happy while you’re shopping.
Whether you want something a little more personal from the likes of Cat Bird NYC or The Last Line, or you like dainty, architectural styles (see: Bonheur. and Kinn), there’s a label here that caters to your minimalist taste. Ahead, we’re breaking it down and encouraging you to browse specific companies based on the type of minimalist you are, because there are two things we know for sure: 1. even though you don’t love chunky statement jewelry, you’re still unique; and 2. you look good in gold.
