While statement jewellery may make a big impact, dainty jewelry can be the perfect way to add a sprinkle of everyday sophistication.
Here are some of the prettiest pieces of delicate jewelry to go with your minimalist wardrobe. As the old saying goes, less is more…
Why dainty jewelry can make a strong statement
A piece of subtle jewelry can add a sense of refinement to your everyday style.
While you may not want to add a statement necklace or a large pair of drop earrings to your outfits each day, you can certainly add a delicate necklace or bracelet, a small ring or a pair of stud earrings.
One of the style “mistakes” that many women can make is not wearing any accessories at all.
Dainty jewellery can provide a way to easily add a finishing touch to all of your looks.
Dainty jewelry as gifts
Dainty jewelry can also make the perfect gift. While it can be hard to get it right when trying to choose a jewelry gift for a loved one, a piece of elegant, subtle jewelry is likely to be well-received.

Whether shopping for yourself or for a gift, here are some of the best pieces of delicate jewelry to choose this season.
First of all here are some of my favorite necklace picks for simple necklaces which are also super stylish. But scroll down for plenty of earrings, rings and bracelets too.
Dainty gold necklace
Most women either prefer gold or silver. If you love gold, how about a delicate gold necklace.
Even though the chain is thin, a longer length will still have impact.
You could also try a more contemporary, geometric style.

A simple bar style is always a good option if you love a minimal look.
Dainty silver necklace

Or you could try a silver bar style which would also look stunning against black or navy.
If you are looking to style your little black dress this year, a long silver lariat style could look very chic.
When choosing a delicate necklace, you can still showcase your individual style with either a traditional or more contemporary piece of jewelry.
Interlocking circles often make a lovely gift as the symbolism means “together”.
Dainty initial necklace
Another great gift idea for yourself or for a loved one is a simple initial pendant.

Just because you opt for a style which is relatively simple, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose a larger pendant for your chain.
Or you could opt for a chain which already has the detailing throughout the links and needs no pendant at all.
Of course, you don’t have to choose a necklace to finish your look. A bracelet is a great way to make your outfit feel more pulled together.

You can either wear only one subtle ring, or you could choose to stack them, or to wear a ring on each finger.

An eternity ring is always a subtly, stylish option.
Dainty gold rings
You could look for rings which are specially designed to be stacked, so you can alter your look day-to-day.

If you don’t like the heaviness, or the look, or larger drop earrings, you could choose a subtle pair of earrings to add a touch of style.
A pair of studs are perfect for everyday style, while you could opt for a simple drop design for evening.
