When it comes to our summer wardrobe, we love the freedom of shedding our bulky winter layers in favor of flowy dresses, crop tops, and shorts. Similarly, temporarily shelving some of our favorite statement jewelry and swapping in sweet and dainty jewelry options that make the best minimalist accessories is what we are all about this season. From classic gold chains to modern beads, stackable rings and everything in between, these delicate pieces are becoming staples of the contemporary jewelry collection.

Discover some of our favorite stylish and affordable dainty jewelry pieces that we will be wearing this summer!

#2 Delicate Necklaces

If you’re on the hunt for a sophisticated yet subtle accessory to add to your jewelry collection this summer, consider dainty jewelry like delicate fashion necklaces to add a polished flair to any look. These ultra-feminine and understated pieces are ideal for adding a little-extra-something to your office attire or dressing up a date night look without being too over the top.

This season, there’s so much variety to choose from in the delicate necklaces department! These adorable minimalist accessories come in every shade and metal, as well as with modern touches like precious stones and beading. Even with these extra touches, your sweet delicate look won’t be too loud to wear to even the most conservative of affairs.

Opt to keep things simple with brass or sterling silver dainty jewelry like a sophisticated circle necklace or a layered necklace featuring romantic semi-precious stones! You can also find a symbol that speaks to you on a delicate chain, such as a crescent moon silhouette, your astrological sign, or your first initial. These inspirational jewelry pieces give off such positive vibes while accenting an ensemble uniquely and beautifully.

Geometric Stud Earrings

Modern girls know that stud earrings can range from super understated to bold and bright. We love that these classic minimalist accessories are so simple to throw on and offer just a hint of glam for everyday wear when you’d rather just not get tangled in some dangly earrings.

One of our dainty jewelry must-haves for the summer: stylish geometric-inspired stud designs that are all the buzz. From the cutest inverted triangles to colorful circles and funky arc studs, these pieces are a great way to inject some of the latest jewelry styles into your look. We love how playful these pieces can be — a kite-shaped pair is perfect for wearing for a summer picnic date!

Colorful Beaded Anklets

Nothing says summer more to us that the cutest wrap fashion bracelets, accented with colorful beads, perfect for carefree days at the beach or bike riding at the boardwalk. Even if we are otherwise jewelry-free, these soft and cute minimalist accessories look oh-so-cute paired with your favorite pair of flip flops or with a flowy summer dress and barefoot feet. Best of all, these dainty jewelry pieces offered by Pura Vida are made for summer adventures — thanks to their 100 percent waterproof feature, you can surf, shower, and embrace the day in absolute style without having to worry about damaging them!

Keep things simple with a single wrap anklet in some of your favorite bright summer shades, or stack them for a more colorful look that’s super fun to wear. Choose from styles that include delicate beads incorporated throughout the anklet or choose a design with a single charm for something unique!

Dainty Rings

Add a touch of elegance and class to your summer ensembles with dainty jewelry like delicate rings! Whether worn alone, stacked, or worn with your other favorite accessories, these pieces add some whimsy and style to your outfit.

We’re loving minimalist accessories that emphasize simple inspirational words etched on gold rings for summertime, along with pieces set with semi-precious stones like trendy rose quartz or a stunning aqua jade. Other simple designs we’re obsessed with include delicate floral styles that add a little bit of boho chic to any look. Wear them as traditional rings or size down for a contemporary midi fit!

Charming Chokers

Chokers are back in style and so fun to wear! These totally 90s designs are back with a contemporary flair and there are plenty of options that offer a simple design — making them the perfect go-to minimalist accessories for summertime. These dainty jewelry options look super cute paired with your favorite tank tops and dresses and any hairstyle — from wavy beach hair to trendy top knots!

This summer, we are all about keeping our jewelry simple, so chokers that use delicate beads or understated designs are the perfect way to incorporate them into our lineup! Don’t be afraid to choose some colorful options, though! Bright beads and even a rainbow design can make a playful statement this season. Pair your choker with a pair of simple huggie hoops or stud earrings for a modern and summer-ready look.
