Seven Affordable Minimalist Jewelry Brands That You’ll Love

image 1

Minimalist jewelry is as popular as it’s ever been. And even if it isn’t an entirely new fashion concept, it’s been only about five years since it started gaining significant exposure. Partially due to bloggers and celebrities alike, this type of jewelry saw a lot of press coverage beginning 2014 onward. Many brands built their name around it and still do to this day.

Overall, minimalist jewelry is probably everyone’s safe choice as it’s welcome in the office and corporate world, just as much as at the cocktail parties, or out on the streets. Given our busy lifestyles, we’re often forced to be transformational and flexible with our style. And this is where minimalist jewelry comes into play.

But don’t get fooled! The term minimalist does not allude to the lack of self-expression by any means. Quite the opposite, in fact! There are masteries when it comes to minimalist jewelry that allow you to create various different looks. Whether it’s mixing and matching, layering, shape play, or anything in between, you can choose which direction to take. From essential basics, to timeless elegance, to street looks – minimalist jewelry has it all! It’s a perfect balance between rebellious and sleek.

That being said, I’ve decided to share seven minimalist jewelry brands that are distinctive and bold, while at the same time being friendly to your wallet.


Cinco is a Portuguese 925 silver jewelry brand that has some truly refreshing designs. It promotes simple elegance, but at the same time it adds a bit of the spice by combining vintage with trendy looks, which is rare in minimalist jewelry.

Cinco works with several artists, all of them locals, to foster authentic designs. They sell worldwide even if they produce locally.

Mejuri’s motto is that luxury should be accessible rather than exclusive, and fun nonetheless. Equally important to this Canadian brand is that it promotes a fair markup instead of going by 8×10 industry standard markup. Mejuri’s pieces give away an ooze of luxury and grace, but without breaking your bank.
