We all have a pair of earrings we wouldn't mind wearing every single day. One that's been a crowd favourite since 2500 BC? Gold hoops. Whether you wear yours close to the earlobes as tiny huggies or stacked up in a cool, layered look, you can always count on them to add a subtle statement to your outfit. A truly seasonless staple in our books.
In fact, once I've found a super comfy pair that we love, I've been known to wear them everywhere (and I mean, everywhere) — to the gym, in the shower and to bed. Sure, it's not best practice, but who hasn't been especially lazy after a long day at work or a late one at the pub?
Inspired by this, I tasked myself with finding the very highest quality gold hoops out there; with sturdy clasps, thick backings that won't easily snap or bend out of shape, and those that are water-resistant and tarnish-free. Aka earrings that you really can treasure forever. Tried and tested over several months of general wear and tear, these are the top eight gold hoop earrings and huggies in my rotation. Read on for the selection.
