Huggie earrings are typically small in diameter and tend to be worn on the earlobe. That being said, they can also be used for other piercings including the helix (cartilage at the top of the ear), forward helix (top, front of the ear) and the tragus (in front of the ear canal).
Hoop earrings can be worn in a variety of ways, depending on the wearer's style. That being said if you do need some styling tips on how to wear gold and silver hoops, then here are a few of our top styling tips:
Huggie and hoop earrings can be worn for almost any occasion. That being said, the size and style of the hoops you choose may vary depending on the event. For example, you may wear different hoop earrings to work compared to the hoops you’d wear for a night out.
For more formal occasions such as going to work, you may choose to go for a more subtle look and wear a smaller dainty pair of hoops. Though in most office environments any earring style is acceptable. However, other places of work may have more formal dress codes.
Alternatively for a special occasion or celebration, you may choose to go for something much more statement such as gemstone hoop earrings, beaded hoops, big hoops or shaped hoop earrings. When choosing hoops for a special occasion, you should also consider whether they will complement your outfit. Opt for gold hoops earrings if your outfit is warm in colour such as orange and red. Opt silver hoop earrings if your outfit is cool in colour such as blue and purple.
For smart casual settings, all bets are off. Depending on your style and preference you can choose any hoop earring style and colour to help up your accessory game. Whether you choose to mix and match your hoops, stack them up your ear lobe from largest to smallest, stick to a signature pair of earrings everyday or wear something more statement, the possibilities are truly endless. What matters most is that you feel confident and comfortable.
When wearing hoop earrings, why not experiment with different colours by choosing huggies and hoops that feature coloured beads and gemstones. Perfect for complimenting your outfit, our gemstone hoops and huggies will help heighten your look. When incorporating colour into your hoop collection be sure to wear complimenting colours as this will really help your earrings stand out.
Hoop earrings and huggies are traditionally worn in the ear lobe but they can also be worn in a variety of other piercings depending on their size. Small hoops and huggies work best for this as they can easily be moved from piercing to piercing. For example, a small pair of hoops or huggies can be worn on the ear lobe, as a second piercing, on the helix or on the tragus. This allows you to get more wear out of each pair of earrings. Hoops and huggies can also be paired with ear cuffs for a more unique finish.
Why not coordinate your huggie earrings and hoops with other pieces of jewellery such as matching bracelets, necklaces and drop earrings. As well as giving your outfit a stunning finish, this will also allow you to create different looks with your jewellery.
Hoop earrings date back to a number of ancient civilisations including the Egyptians, the Romans and ancient Greece. Throughout history, hoop earrings have been worn by both men and women, ranging across a variety of social classes including the wealthy and powerful.
The first recorded hoop earrings originated in 2500 B.C.E. in Nubia, an African civilisation located in what we now call Sudan. Hoop earrings can also be traced back to 1500 B.C.E. in Egypt. The Egyptians believed that hoop earrings enhanced a person's beauty and were made using metal and beads. Hoop earrings can also be seen in ancient Roman and Greek art. Though it was predominantly worn by women, men with high social status would also sometimes wear hoop earrings.
During the 1600s - 1800s, hoop earrings declined in popularity with those who could afford jewellery opting to wear elaborate hairstyles and headpieces as well as high collared decorative clothing. Hoop earrings came back in popularity during the early 1900s thanks to the short cropped hairstyles of the 1920s and 1930s which were often complimented by the addition of earrings.
Fast forward to the 19960s and 1970s and hoop earrings could be seen on everyone from Sharon Tate to Cher. Symbolising freedom, peace and love, hoop earrings were the go to accessory of choice for the fashion conscious. Hoops continued to grow in popularity during the 1990s and early 2000s thanks to hip hop culture and Latino influence.
Now in modern mainstream society, huggies and hoop earrings can be worn by anyone and everyone. Available in a range of styles including big hoops, small hoops, dainty huggie hoops, statement hoop earrings and so much more, there is something to match every look and style.
