When it comes to wedding accessories, there are so many different routes to go. Some people have heirloom pieces passed down from generations, special pieces that might be your "something borrowed"—classic and timeless jewelry that you can treasure until you pass it down! Others go for the "something new" route (or maybe do a mix of the two), in which case you have to have decided on what style bride you are. Are you classic, opting for pearls, and innocuous, dainty pieces? More fashion forward with bolder, statement-making jewelry? Or maybe you just want to feel like yourself and wear a pair of earrings or necklace you wear all the time (totally understandable!).
For the super modern, minimalist bride, searching for the ideal wedding jewelry amongst pieces that are labeled as quintessentially "bridal" can certainly be a challenge. Even the most modern of much bridal jewelry isn't quite bold or minimalist enough for all of us. And what better place to find cool, indie, modern accessories then the one-and-only Etsy?? Aforementioned, however, sometimes finding the best of the best on Etsy is the ol' needle in haystack situation. Here are ten of our favorite modern and minimalist pieces of jewelry on Etsy this week!
