    Keep it subtle.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Quick note before we get started: I'm using the term "minimalist" very lightly because otherwise this would just be a list of plain circle stud earrings. Please don't yell at me, thank you.


    OK, let's shop!

    1. A sleek brass hair pin to make your fancy bun the center of attention.


    Get it from HyworksLA on Etsy for $62.90 or a cheaper, square version from skydesign on Etsy for $19.

    2. Lil' dot earrings for keeping it truly simple.


    Promising review: "These are great minimalist earrings! They are light, but strong and have a good tone/color to them. The packaging was top-notch, too! The earrings were presented nicely in a cute gift box, and underneath the earrings were a small polishing cloth and baggie containing extra plastic backings to keep on hand." β€”Rebecca

    Get them from Amazon for $15.50 (available in three finishes).

    3. Or dangling dots for a little extra flair, without getting too complex.


    Get them from Walmart for $13.99.

    4. An elegant, adjustable cuff you can bend to fit almost any wrist size.


    Promising review: "Really lovely, delicate little bracelet. I wear it with a wristwatch and a tennis bracelet, and it's a great look. Very satisfied." β€”Felicia H. Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $18 (available in three finishes).

    5. An open circle necklace for an easy piece of jewelry you can wear every day.


    Promising review: "This necklace was absolutely perfect. Dainty, but not microscopic. The length made me nervous because it has only one clasp, but the pictures looked cute and it fits perfectly! I have had multiple people already ask me where I got it from and have referred them to Honeycat! Thanks so much for my favorite necklace! Will definitely be ordering again." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in three finishes).

    6. A pair of geometric earrings you'll wonder how you ever lived without.


    Promising review: "These are adorable. Others have commented on the sharpness of the posts, but they slide on very easily, and the tip is nowhere near your neck. I haven't had any issues whatsoever from the posts, even after wearing them through multiple workdays. They're so lightweight you'll forget you have them on, until someone gives you a compliment (and they will)! Yeah, they're absolutely costume jewelry, but they're unique and comfortable." β€”Felyx Leiter

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    7. Geometric hair clips for pinning your hair back without making a big deal about it.


    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    8. Simple earrings that will raise the ~bar~ for the rest of your jewelry collection.


    Promising review: "So far, I'm LOVING these. I cleaned them in hydrogen peroxide like I do with most earrings before wearing them. They have not irritated my ears, and are the perfect size." β€”cwebb

    Get them from Amazon for $18 (available in three finishes).

    9. Classy line earrings you'll want to ~hang~ on to.


    Get it from HyworksLA on Etsy for $39.90.

    10. A T-shaped cuff with no troublesome clasps or closures.


    Promising review: "This product looks much more expensive than the price. It would make an excellent gift. It's hard to put on, since it's rigid, so beware of this if your hands are wide (like mine), but once it goes through, it looks perfect." β€”marisol Quintanilla garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90.

    11. A pair of paperclip-inspired earrings for all you Clippy fans out there.


    Get them from Anthropologie for $78.

    Promising review: "I like this necklace very much and the color is so beautiful! I wear it nearly every day, even while sleeping, showering, and exercising. It's very lightweight and doesn't bother my neck. It goes easily with any style of clothing. If you are a person who likes simple style, then I would strongly recommend this necklace!" β€”Amazon Customer

    25. A criss-cross ring so cute, you'll find yourself gesticulating wildly, just so everyone looks at your finger.
