Minimalistic Emerald Jewellery

No-one can really say with certainty exactly why minimalism became such a big hit, but it’s certainly taken much of the design world by storm, with jewellery being no exception.

With that in mind, let’s get into some minimalistic emerald jewellery designs and ways to wear them.


When it comes to bracelets, minimalistic design is quite forgiving with styles and shapes. Whilst it’s true that large, bulky bracelets are less likely to be welcomed into the fold, chain bracelets, charm bracelets, and slimline bangles are all utilised well within this style.

Incorporating emeralds into the design is dependent on the type of bracelet you have. A bangle can have a single gemstone set into it with a bezel or collet setting, meaning the stone sits securely in the metal rather than jutting out to such a degree that the piece is no longer minimalistic.

A charm bracelet is more forgiving when it comes to adding emeralds. Whilst – on paper – a charm bracelet seems like the antithesis of minimalism; it is actually a great touch to a minimalist jewellery box when it is worn as a standalone piece of jewellery without accompaniment.


Dainty necklaces are beloved by minimalists and for good reason; they are beautiful without being ostentatious, and they are very versatile pieces of jewellery that can be worn for a vast variety of occasions. Everyday outfits are given the perfect compliment with a slim necklace sitting right at your collarbones.

Emeralds come into the mix with ease when it comes to necklaces. A single round-cut drop of an emerald pendant – not of too high a carat either – adds an elegant touch of colour that’s always welcome.

If you want things to be as neat and ordered as possible whilst exploring your minimalist self, emerald is the birthstone for those born in May, so if you’re a spring baby then you can feel even more at home with an emerald accent around your neck.


Rings are possibly the only piece of jewellery where minimalists are welcome to wear multiple at any one time. Usually, minimalist rings are very slimline, allowing for the wearing of several rings at once without your hands looking too crowded.

When it comes to wearing minimalistic emerald jewellery, however, try to experiment a little with your rings. Wearing emerald engagement rings can actually fit the bill of a suitably minimalistic aesthetic if you play your cards right.

Vintage rings have that added quality of uniqueness that makes them a great choice for those looking to add some sparkle to their accessories without going overboard. Eternity-style rings, with smaller gemstones in a row around the length of the band, are perfect for minimalists. Try it out and see for yourself.


The last jewellery avenue we’re going to explore today for some minimalistic emerald jewellery is earrings. Most drop earrings are near enough out of the question for minimalists, being too flashy and large.

This isn’t always the case, however, as the more linear drop earrings and the single-stone drop earrings are effortless and simple all at once. Equally, you can never go wrong with the classic stud earring.

An emerald stud can be personalised to some extent by modifying the cut of the emerald. Round cut stud earrings are the most common, and they are a timeless classic, so it’s no surprise. You can find something more unique to you with trillion cuts, princess cuts, or fancy heart cut emerald earrings.

And there you have it; a few ways that minimalistic emerald jewellery can be incorporated into your jewellery box without things getting too chaotic or ‘messy’. What type of minimalist jewellery is your favourite?
