Minimalist jewelry has been trending hard for quite some time now. We like to think it’s because you almost can’t go wrong with delicate hoops, thin stacked rings, and geometric pieces, no matter what else you’re wearing.

Another benefit: You can endlessly stack and layer pieces without ever looking overdone. Fifteen silver rings tends to feel like just the right amount, while tiny, almost-invisible studs look better by the droves.

There’s just something very cool about wearing jewelry that’s so small, people have to look twice to notice it. That may be part of the popularity of it all, too: Minimalist pieces have become many a woman’s signature jewelry, since the simplistic designs pair with almost everything. Think of it as the accessory world’s version of the little black dress.

Luckily, since the trend has caught on, there are tons of brands making chic, affordable pieces for the masses. Click through the gallery to see five of our favorites.

Maria Black

This Danish-based jeweler imbues sleek Scandinavian design with an edgy twist—each of her pieces is designed to work multiple ways. For example, a simple cuff has an extra piece that detaches and can be worn in a second piercing. It's these kinds of surprising twists that make her pieces really special. The brand also encourages you to mix and match. Most single earrings are less than $150.

It may not be a jewelry label, per se, but we've found some of our favorite delicate minimalist pieces at this Swedish chain. It makes sense, given the brand's Scandinavian roots. From thin rings with small, faux pearls to slim, geometric chokers, you can easily stock up on pieces since most everything falls under $50.

AgJc

Etsy has a surprising amount of chic handmade jewelry options, and AgJc is one of them. Based out of Paris, this label focuses on slim, geometric earrings in natural shades such as silver and charcoal gray. It also sells rings that match some of the earrings in shape and color, and most pieces cost less than $100.

Brooklyn-based Littionary is a great go-to for tiny, minimalist earrings—so delicate, you'll have to look twice to spot them. Whether you want a simple set of gold hoops or the smallest studs, the label keeps things simple while still providing a variety of options.

8.6.4

Brooklyn-based 8.6.4 does simplistic, geometric earrings really well. The label offers a variety of different shapes and sizes that look chic from every angle. Because of the uniformity of all of its styles, we think they'd also be great for mixing and matching. Everything the brand sells comes in at under $42, with the exception of pieces that include pearls.
