The idea of hoop earrings is far from groundbreaking but it’s the fact that the simple silhouette done in varying metals, gemstones and sizes over several decades, has managed to transcend trends taking on the personal style and flair of the person wearing them.
Case in point: Rihanna and Kendall Jenner have recently been sporting over sized (practically cartoonish) hoops that add a modern edge to their street style.
More classic and understated gold hoops can look exotic and festive depending on their size. Add diamonds and they move seamlessly into black tie and beyond.
The rounded nature of hoops cast a striking contrast to structured pieces like a bold pants suit or evening tuxedo as well as a strong square or asymmetrical neckline.
The best part? Beyond the versatility of hoops is that there truly is a pair for everyone and for every occasion. No matter the size they frame the face beautifully and are generally very comfortable to wear.
For anyone building their ultimate jewelry wardrobe, hoops are arguably in the top 3 must haves next to diamond studs.
