If you loved the large, loud statement earrings we’ve seen in the last few runway seasons, and are looking for a fashionable way to translate that to fall and winter, look no further than Sade (and Rihanna, J. Lo., Hailey Baldwin, and so many, many more). Gold hoop earrings are officially having another moment—though some would argue they were never not having a moment. Gold earrings are a universal classic, and the hoop has been popular time and time again.
The rebirth of the hoop truly is a reimagining of a classic, and just like your favorite pair of jeans or lipstick, there’s no one-size-fits-all hoop. Though there’s no need to pick just one pair, finding the one or two to call your fave is as personal as finding those perfect jeans.
Gold Hoop Earrings for The Novice
If your usual go-to is a pair of studs but you’re looking to refresh a little, try a tiny hoop; they’re discreet but still have more going on than a stud, especially if you add a little extra bling. Hearts on Fire’s Triplicity hoops are only about half an inch in diameter, but the tapering of their perfectly-cut diamonds sets them apart. You can also stack them with similar sized hoops for an extra-updated look.
The Midi Hoops
Hoops that average about one-and-a-half inches of space below the ear lobe are still considered playing it safe, but are also a sure-fire way to upgrade wardrobe basics like a chambray shirt or chunky knit. Simon G. is a master of the midi! The Modern Enchantment collection especially sees diamond-embellished hoops that are singular in their radiance yet still classic with their golden rich hues and modest circumference.
Another jewelry designer known for their effortless style, Tacori takes an inventive approach to gold hoop earrings with The Ivy Lane collection. The pieces feature warm 18k gold with a confetti of diamonds and Tacori’s signature crescent detailing. They look just as stunning with a clean button up as they do with a shift dress and an updo.
The Coke Can Hoops
The backstory: The name is derived from the pair of Jennifer Fisher hoops, made famous by the one and only Michelle Obama, that have the same circumference as a Coke can. If they’re good enough for Michelle, they’re good enough for all of us. Also, they’re big, but they’re not huge.
Just like the name implies, anything about four or more inches in circumference will likely grace your shoulders. Though many come in delicate, tinsel-thin gold, they’re still bound to stand out. (You’ve been warned.)
For the fashionista who likes to defy convention (and basic geometry), there are plenty of “hoops” in unconventional shapes: curvy squares, artsy ovals, vintage-inspired twists. Frederic Sage’s extensive industry background and his love of unexpected designs shows in his inventive hoop creations: two teardrop shapes melded into a hoop and draped with diamonds lends the classic style extra dimension and texture.
