We couldn’t help but dedicate a blog post to one of our favorite trends: super delicate jewelry that proves less really can be more. As much as we love large statement pieces, it’s nice to switch them out for something clean and minimal for everyday wear (or more comfortable napping). Here’s a taste of the unique, tiny marvels we love to layer up or wear on their own at the Oakland shop: AILI’s Monica Ruzansky is the master of minimal- this gold and ruby number adds just the right amount of color, sparkle, and geometry right around the collarbone. Sarah Swell calls her tiny conical pendant a “mini mountain,” which is about the cutest thing we’ve ever heard. An interesting take on the classic heart necklace, Luana Coonen’s dainty anatomical heart hangs from a feather-light 14k yellow gold chain (also available in sterling silver and mixed metals). Like most of her work, this piece finds a perfect balance between romance and hip girl edge. Satomi’s baby pearl stacking ring looks almost sweet enough to eat, and it’s even better on the hand. As with all her rings, it stacks brilliantly, or provides a delicate touch solo.
