Decisions To Make When You Shop For Hoop Earrings

by Natalie Fields

If you've recently had your ears pierced and you're keen on acquiring an assortment of earrings that you can wear for different occasions, it's a good idea to visit a local jewelry store. Once there, you can browse the selection of products to find earrings that appeal to you. There are all sorts of earring styles that may be of interest, including hoop earrings. Hoop earrings come in a seemingly endless array of designs, so it's a good idea to look at different products to see what's available. You'll also want to make some decisions about what you're looking for in a pair of hoop earrings. Here are some topics to cover.


When you look at a selection of hoop earrings, you'll quickly notice that they're available in many different sizes. It's a good idea to look at the sizes and evaluate which designs resonate with you. For example, some people favor small hoops that only extend a slight distance beyond the bottom of the earlobe, while others favor oversized hoops that hang closer to the top of the shoulder. Of course, there are many different sizes in between these two extremes. Don't be afraid to hold up a few designs to your ears to get a sense of which hoop size suits you best.


Hoop earrings are available in many different finishes, so it's a good idea to think about what finishes you like the most in your jewelry. Not only will you find hoop earrings in hues such as silver and gold, but you'll also find designs that are highly polished and others that have a matte finish. Some hoop earrings are smooth, while others have a hammered texture. Other earrings look as though they're braided, while you're also apt to come across designs that include two or more different colors — for example, silver and rose gold.

Inclusion Of Other Details

You'll generally find that a lot of hoop earrings have a simple design. There are products, however, that include other details beyond the hoops. For example, you'll commonly come across earrings that have gemstones in certain areas — sometimes, around each entire hoop. Some earrings even include fabric — silk or fine thread, for example — that stretches across the center of the hoops. You may even come across hoop earrings that have small accents that dangle from the bottoms of the hoops — pearls, for example. Don't be afraid to take your time to assess the many styles until you find some earrings that you like.
