Your 101 on Wearing Minimalist Jewelry
- Show Restraint with Your Choice of Jewelry
Minimalism welcomes clean and streamlined designs, simple lines, non-fussy bling, dainty sizes and discreet jewelry – but that’s not all. On a greater scale, minimalism is all about showing restrain and going against the popular trends that follow maximalism and over-consumption.
If you want to rock minimalist jewelry like a pro, selecting your pieces carefully is imperative – not only that, but making sure that every piece has a purpose, a meaning, a certain value or a role is just as essential. On the same note, avoid going overboard with your choice of jewelry and stick to an ideal three pieces when wanting to create a look that sends a minimalist message.
- Stick to the Classics
If you can’t resist timeless and classic pieces of jewelry and wonder whether you can incorporate them in your minimalist looks, then good news: definitely! Incorporating classics in your collection is definitely a great way to make sure your pieces are both versatile and without an expiration date. Not only that, but pieces like simple diamond studs, discreet pearl necklaces or pearl stud earrings are part of the minimalist family, with their elevated simplicity and dainty, elegant size. Make sure to stick to one gem and forgo combining both gems and metal tones when on a minimalist mission on order to achieve that crisp, streamlined look minimalists love.
- Invest in Versatile Pieces
Versatility is one of the core foundations of minimalism – and that’s because it goes against consumerism. At its core, minimalism is more than just an aesthetic trend. It implies curating a well thought-out lifestyle, pertaining to home décor, fashion, accessories and more. And if you are on your way of becoming a true minimalist, you’ll soon find that less is more – and not just when it comes to the lack of bedazzlement, or the size of the pieces. In fact, minimalism is all about smart, non-impulsive shopping and styling, which means that the pieces you choose to invest in should be as versatile as possible and should be appropriate in the widest range of settings.
- Opt for Sentimental Jewelry Pieces
Sentimental doesn’t have to mean taking your ‘shopping’ to your grandma’s old jewelry box. In fact, minimalism welcomes sentimental pieces of jewelry simply because they imply that impulsively-bought, random bling won’t make the cut in a curated collection.
Basically, if you want to follow the minimalist approach, invest in pieces that stand the test of time, are made of durable materials and that carry a timeless look, instead of following a certain style craze.
- Indulge in Geometry
On a less ideological and more aesthetic note, minimalism is all about geometry. From triangles to rectangles and from simple, crisp lines to circles and rhombuses, it’s all there – your entire geometry book. Add to the mix 3D geometric shapes like pyramids and cubes and you get the geometry galore picture. Minimalism and geometry make an irrefutable team, mostly because they both love precision and clean lines that serve a purpose (in the latter case, a shape-defining purpose). From statement bangles that feature minimalist triangles to dainty square shaped flat stud earrings, the possibilities are endless.
