As much as we love a good pair of extra-large hoops, sometimes we're in need of an earring that isn't big enough to fit our fist through. While doorknockers have become our preferred go-to, not every occasion calls for a larger-than-life accessory. But pushing aside statement earrings doesn't mean you're left with demure and simple — it's possible to find a piece that looks cool without weighing down your earlobes.
Instead of bigger and bolder, a smaller hoop is an opportunity to focus on the finer details, like added charms, new shapes, and maybe even a few gemstones. Mini hoops belong in a category all their own, because what they lack in size they make up for in personality. No, you don't need to stash your '00s revival hoops away for good, but the 32 itty bitty options ahead may convince you it's time to try something new. Hey, at least you won't have to worry about these snagging on anything, right?
