minimalist jewelry

I have never been one for jewelry. Correction – I choose to spend my money on clothes over accessories. I love jewelry – yes, what girl doesn’t, but buying it is another story. Even though accessories really make the outfit, I can’t help but buy shirts/blouses/jeans over the fun stuff – necklaces, rings, bangles, etc.

When I do wear jewelry I tend to default to my go-to pieces:

  • mom’s jade necklace & bangle
  • auntie’s antique gold flaked necklace
  • Tiffany pearl earrings from the hubbs
  • Express metallic bangles
  • DIY Chan Luu inspired wrap bracelets
  • assortment of chunky mixed metal rings
  • Skagen gold men’s watch

Metallics, gold, vintage. Call me boring, I know, I need to branch out but I always end up choosing my minimalist jewelry. I think it provides the perfect accent to all outfits because of the versatility. And I love mixed metals; you really can’t go wrong.

Lately I’ve been eyeing all the minimalist jewelry Trending on Pinterest. Check out these beauts –
