10 Delicate jewelry pieces

As the weather warms and clothes get simpler, the little details stand out all the more: a simple necklace on a bare collarbone, a minimal slip of gold against cutoffs and a t-shirt. I’ve been noticing more delicate jewelry all around me, everyday pieces, and just love the feminine touch.

Some recent favorites… 

A diamond open-ring and stacker ring by Mejuri, a direct-to-consumer company with a focus on precious metals, genuine gemstones, and ethically sourced diamonds.

If you’re looking for birthstones, Jennifer Meyer’s collection of jewelry has many delicate options.

Bali Hoops by Able—a cool update on a classic. Bonus: Able’s jewelry is handcrafted in Nashville, TN, and focuses on ending generational poverty through economic empowerment of women.

A delicate oval bracelet made with recycled gold from Toronto-based Attic. Or this vine bangle by Annika jewelry, inspired by ancient jewelry artifacts.

These Jewels & Aces earring studs and jackets can be taken apart and mixed up to wear behind or in front of the lobe, or layers asymmetrically.

Vrai & Oro, “Fine jewelry with a conscience,” are committed to transparency. These are their Solitaire and Baguette diamond necklaces. I would also choose their line necklace for an everyday piece.

Of a Kind is also a great source of small-designer creations and this Sliding Stardust Necklace is by Mau jewelry and features rosy pink rhodolite that can be moved around the gold chain.

Claus jewelry makes pieces by hand in Montclair, New Jersey. There’s a gorgeous collection of signet rings, and these necklaces are from their botanical collection—lavender and poppy.

Fiona Morrison is the designer behind Wolf Circus, pieces made in Vancouver using recycled metals. These are a bit bolder, but that assembly bracelet is a favorite. Also love these simple drop earrings.

The layering is done for you: A stone set in chain, accentuated with a gold plate, to wrap around the wrist—by Belmto.

Other favorite sources: General Store, Amour Vert, and Catbird. Of course Etsy has so many options. I tend to look there when I have something specific in mind to keep the search from getting overwhelming. Try Femina Handmade.

Do you have any favorite sources? Which of these would you choose? 

P.S. Summer style inspiration and a DIY Marbled Jewelry Box.
