21 Pieces Of Dainty Jewelry That Offer Striking Impact With Zero Effort
Without a doubt the most popular type of jewelry right now is dainty, delicate jewelry. Loud, gaudy accessories can be fun, but sometimes you want a piece of jewelry that whispers a statement. It's surprising how much a minimal necklace, a delicate bracelet, or a stack of extremely thin rings can elevate a simple outfit. You can even wear all of those items together without having to worry about it looking overwhelming. Not to mention, minimal jewelry instantly makes the wearer appear incredibly chic. Whether you're on a budget and want something simple for under $50 (or even under $10) or you're looking to splurge on something unique and timeless, there is a piece of minimal jewelry here for you.
