What Jewelry To Buy If 'Quiet Luxury' Is Your Style

By now we all know which fashion brands work well for lovers of quiet luxury, so let’s discuss jewelry instead.

Quiet luxury is not a new concept, it’s a style ethos that has been repackaged to hit harder in the social media sphere. If there is one thing that TikTok has brought to the world that other platforms haven’t, it’s very specific trends.

With TikTok’s dominance in trend creation, niche trends have become mainstream. It’s no longer a smokey eye, it’s espresso makeup. It’s not romanticism, it’s cottage core. One of the more generic and broad terms that was at the root of society’s newfound fascination for microtrends, is quiet luxury.

Quiet luxury in short is a fashion movement that puts emphasis on quality and timeless, typically minimalist, pieces that are not trend-led.

The quiet luxury movement does not only apply to clothing and bags, but to jewelry too. Most of the big Italian designer names do not fit the brief. Brands such as Gucci and Versace tend to lean more towards logo-centric and bold designs. Quiet luxury jewelry comprises of simple and unfussy designs but done really well.

Top 5 Quiet Luxury Jewelry Collections

These are the jewelry pieces that myGemma thinks best suit the quiet luxury jewelry ideal.

Tiffany & Co. Tiffany T Collection

As quiet luxury is an antithesis to recognizable designs, that discounts some of the classic jewelry styles such as the LOVE Bracelet from Cartier. However, an alternative is the Tiffany T Collection, especially the bangle bracelets. Some of the designs include diamonds, but a few diamonds can still fit well within the quiet luxury aesthetic.

David Yurman Madison Collection

The Madison pieces from David Yurman elevate the classic chain. These designs are perfect for adhering to a classic, timeless look but with finesse. Some items from the Cable Collection, such as some of the hoop earrings, would also work really well. 

Hoop Earrings

Not brand specific, but a pair of good quality hoop earrings are perfect for every style but for lovers of minimalism in particular. A pair of chunky mid-sized hoops in either white gold or yellow gold belong in every jewelry collection as far as we’re concerned.

Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Teardrop

The Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Teardrop pendant necklaces and rings have a chunky silhouette and simple curved construction. These pieces are discreet without being overly traditional. They are perfect for those who prefer a thicker shape, as opposed to more dainty styles.

Cartier Lanières Collection

While the likes of the LOVE and Just Un Clou collections are perhaps the most popular jewelry styles from Cartier, they aren’t the only ones to consider. Especially if you’re looking for something a little more under-the-radar. The Lanières Collection is the perfect choice, detailed with square motifs which create a clean and geometric look.
