Last year’s jewelry industry was dazzling. From shells to letters, each had its own audience. Will they still be popular in 2022? I have no answer, but I do know that there is a style that will never be outdated, and will be showcased in fashion magazines in another 10 years: minimalist jewelry.
What is minimalism?
Minimalism originated from art as a faction that emerged in the 1960s. It puts forward the idea that “art is not a means of self-expression, but an objective existence.”
Minimalism displays the original object or form in front of the viewer, intending to eliminate the author’s oppression of the viewer’s consciousness, minimize the sense of violence when the work appears as text or symbolic form, and open the imagination space of the work itself in the art concept, which eventually allows the viewer to participate in the construction of the work independently without specific restrictions.
Minimalism initially appeared as the opposite of abstractism, but as the times changed, its influence almost overtook abstractism, and has directly or indirectly extended to the fields of design, architecture, fashion, music, and so on.
What are the characteristics of minimalism?
Minimalism as a form of art, advocates eliminating unnecessary elements, focusing on simplicity and functionality, and only expressing art through lines, geometric figures, and solid colors.
Minimalism is also a style of life, in which the original intention is to strive for simplicity and reject anything that violates this concept.

What are the characteristics of minimalist jewelry?
Maximalism and minimalism are the two extremes in the fashion world. While the former brings exquisite gorgeousness and grace, the latter gives us a completely different sense of beauty.
The popularity of minimalist jewelry is a successful practice of the “less is more” philosophy in jewelry, which helps us to meet the true demands of returning to the original simplicity and purity.
The magic is that minimalist jewelry makes people feel refreshed and cleaned for a moment. It has simple lines and colors.
Unpretentious is the core idea. Therefore, this type of jewelry is especially suitable for women who have clear goals, strong power, and leadership.
