Dainty, delicate jewelry has been having a big moment lately. We're a big fan of the simple, yet chic look it offers. You can effortlessly layer strands of delicate chains and dainty pendants to create a look that is uniquely your own. Dainty necklaces, bracelets, and rings are a good investment because of its versatility. Wearing multiple pieces adds sparkle and glam to an everyday look and on the other hand, donning just one piece simply finishes off an outfit. Delicate jewelry complements your everyday ensemble, your work attire, and even your night-out garb! It's no wonder that the world seems to be enamored with delicate, feminine jewelry right now.
And if you're searching for a jewelry to gift to a girlfriend, mom, or sister, you can't go wrong with delicate, minimalist jewelry. Chances are it will play well with the jewelry in her beloved collection. And what woman wouldn't love more options to mix and match with her jewelry! Even if you're not sure what type of jewelry she would like, dainty jewelry looks fantastic on everybody.
In honor of the delicate jewelry trend, here are some of our most favorite dainty necklaces perfect for carrying a photo of a loved one close and that would also look gorgeous layered with other simple pendants and necklaces. We love this idea because we believe that each piece of jewelry you own has a story. When you wear them all together, you create a beautiful mosaic of memories and stories.
