8 Benefits of Minimalist Jewellery

15th August 2023

Where many people will opt for jewellery items that add a hint of glitz and sparkle to their outfit, regardless of the occasion, there are others who rely heavily on minimalist jewellery items, and for many reasons. If you’re one to always choose the glamorous pieces, then here are eight reasons as to why you should at least give simplistic jewellery items a try. You never know, you might actually prefer those pieces and all of the advantages and benefits that they have to offer.


1. It’s a versatile fashion choice

Minimalist jewellery can be worn with any outfit, at any time of the day or night. No matter the occasion and regardless of some of the other fashion choices you have made, simple jewellery will be sure to tie everything together, offering a hint of glamour without going overboard. This means that simple jewellery pieces can be worn for any event, from in the office and at a coffee shop to a night on the town and a formal dinner party, you won’t go wrong by choosing a simple jewellery piece to bring your look together.


2. It’s a timeless jewellery option

Seeing as simplistic jewellery items don’t usually contain any other aspects, such as diamonds, gems or other stones, it’s often considered to be a timeless, classic jewellery item that will go with any outfit, as already touched upon. If you bought a piece of simple jewellery today, you’ll still be able to pull it off in twenty or thirty years time, because it’s such a timeless, classic jewellery item. Stud earrings, bracelets and necklaces, especially, offer that timeless feel that can be enjoyed for many decades to come, allowing future generations to perhaps enjoy it also.


3. It’s often considered to be affordable 

Minimalist jewellery is usually considered to be cheaper than other jewellery items that contain gems, diamonds and other stones, for example. It’s also more affordable because it’s usually made with one material, as opposed to more complicated items that can be two-toned, for example. 

If you’re looking to make a fashion statement, or to enhance your outfit without taking too much attention away, then you’ll be able to acquire a high-quality, beautiful piece of simplistic jewellery without breaking the bank. This allows you to wear it continuously over and over again, with absolute peace of mind that it will be long-lasting and will never become tarnished or broken. 


4. It’s comfortable to wear

A lack of stones, gems and diamonds, for example, makes for comfortable wearing when it comes to minimalist jewellery. It’s often made from one material and doesn’t often consist of many different elements. This means there are less things for you to catch yourself on, or for you to catch on clothes such as jumpers, cardigans and coats, for example. Jewellery with protruding aspects, diamonds and other stones, when caught on clothing items and other things, can cause damage. So minimalist jewellery would be the option to choose if you’re slightly clumsy or accident-prone.


5. It’s of high quality

Most jewellery items, unless it’s labelled as costume jewellery, are considered to be high quality. However, minimalist jewellery is a safe bet if you’re seeking quality. This is because they don’t contain stones, gems, diamonds or anything else that could be a risk of becoming loose and falling out of the item. 

Whilst this doesn’t always indicate a low quality item, it’s more likely that minimalist jewellery will last far longer without a defect or an issue arising. Simplistic jewellery can last for many years without any intervention or maintenance, so if you’re looking for something that’s durable-yet-stunning, then minimalist jewellery would be the way to go.


6. It’s makes the perfect gift 

The very fact that minimalist jewellery is exactly that – minimalist – it can make for the perfect gift. This is because you don’t have to worry about someone’s specific taste. It can be difficult if you don’t know them particularly well. So minimalist jewellery is a good way to go.

Simple jewellery acts as the perfect present for the hard-to-buy-for. This is because it doesn’t come with gems, diamonds or other stones. That and there are plenty of materials to choose from, also. You might have noticed that the recipient wears a lot of yellow gold, so choose a simple yellow gold piece. Minimalist jewellery is a safe option if you’re looking to purchase a meaningful, beautiful gift for someone.


7. It’s easy to maintain

Simplistic jewellery is very easy to maintain, look after and keep clean. This is because of their lack of stones, gems and diamonds. Therefore, there are fewer nooks and crannies for dirt to gather. This often means that you’ll be able to clean and polish your jewellery at home. Provided you have the right tools and materials. But it’s recommended that you take your jewellery to a qualified and trusted jeweller for cleaning. 

This gives you absolute peace of mind that your cherished jewellery will be cleaned and handled with the utmost care. The cost to clean minimalist jewellery is low in comparison to cleaning jewellery adorned with diamonds or gemstones. It should also be noted that, with white gold jewellery, it can turn to a champagne colour over time.

Essentially, cleaning white gold alone won’t be enough to restore it back to its former, glimmering glory. Instead, you will need to consider having it re-rhodiumed. This, essentially, eliminates the champagne colour, making it look as bright and shiny as the day you first bought it. This is a popular choice for people who have simplistic rings that have become discoloured. Again, this is more common with white gold jewellery.


8. It can work for men as well

Minimalist jewellery isn’t just a popular choice with women, but with men as well. The fact that it’s considered to be sparkly, for example, means that anyone can wear and pull-off minimalist jewellery. There are earrings, necklaces, watches and bracelets that all genders can pair with any outfit,. This is the case no matter your fashion choices or your individual style. 

This, again, reiterates exactly how versatile minimalist jewellery actually is. Whether you want to enhance an evening outfit or dress-down a look, then minimalist jewellery is for you.
