Hoop earrings, which have been worn for millennia and have a rich cultural history, are a classic jewelry style. This month, I’ve been thinking of investing in a new pair after spotting them on so many of my favourite street-style stars and fashion editors during the Paris couture shows. A stylish hoop makes a statement for dressy events but is also ideal for the everyday.
It’s possible to find cute stainless steel or zinc hoops for under $20, but if you’re looking for a quality pair to wear every day, it makes sense to spend a little bit more on a gold- or silver-plated design that feels more substantial on and will last longer. Besides the material, you’ll also want to consider the diameter, thickness, and shape of your ideal hoops — a few millimetres can be the difference between a design that’s delicate and one that feels more bold.
Here are three on-sale gold hoop earrings to check out.
