If you're a fan of fashion that's understated -- but wholly sophisticated -- then you're in for some good news.

Minimalism is having a major moment.

The trend focuses on simple, but elegant clothing, accessories, and of course, jewelry. Effortless studs, glowing pearls, and sterling silver bijoux all top the list. The result: chic accessories that never look overwhelming. And for good reason: minimalist pieces pair well with practically every outfit.

The latest from mega-retailers like Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom, prove that keeping things small (but still elegant) never looked better. Ahead are 12 beautiful rings, earrings, necklaces, cuffs, and anklets that will make you rethink how you accessorize.

Who said bigger is always better?
