Gifting jewelry during the holiday season can be just as meaningful as it is stylish. After all, it's hard to say no to a little bit of sparkle, right? Olivia Culpo's silver hoop earrings are a sleek gift to add to your holiday shopping list — and they're surprisingly affordable.

Minimalistic jewelry has witnessed a spike in popularity over the last few years, with pieces like delicate chain necklaces and simple drop earrings earning a spot in every fashion-lover's lineup. And it makes sense, considering even if you don't typically put a lot of emphasis on accessorizing, a classic piece of jewelry can add an effortless sophistication to your everyday look.

Look no further than Culpo for the proof. In her latest Instagram post, the model posed with famous friend, Marianna Hewitt, wearing a traditional, yet on-trend pair of thick silver hoops. The earrings, by Astrid & Miyu, retail for just under $80. She used this subdued touch of sparkle to elevate her otherwise uncomplicated look, consisting of a cream-colored, fringe sweater and matching trousers.

Culpo gave the earrings their chance to truly shine by slicking her hair back into a tight, low bun with a prominent side part. Since she was attending a "Friendsgiving" get-together and prepping food for Meals on Wheels, Culpo kept her beauty look ultra casual, opting for defined brows, long lashes, and neutral lips.

Now before you go crazy adding loads of jewelry to your online cart, it's important to note that it is possible to find quality pieces at reasonable price points. If Culpo can do it, you can too. Make the holidays a little easier on your bank account (without sacrificing your gift-giving street cred) by taking a cue from the model herself.

Ahead, shop Culpo's price-conscious silver hoops, along with plenty of other affordable pieces of on-trend jewelry that are bound to impress anyone you're shopping for this season.
