Remember this scene in Mean Girls? ..”If you only knew how mean she really is… You’d know that I’m not allowed to wear hoop earrings, right? Yeah! Two years ago she told me hoop earrings were her thing and I wasn’t allowed to wear them anymore..” Gold hoop earrings are just as iconic as this movie, and if you ask us hoop earrings are not exclusive to Regina George but for everyone! In this blog we’re sharing our guide to wearing hoop earrings, for those of you that may consider adopting this style, or who are just curious about which hoop earring suits which occasion (you’ll be surprised!). Scroll down and read along to see what we mean, and if you need a new pair, let us introduce you to your new favorites!
History of hoops
The history of hoop earrings is as long as human history itself. Throughout history, the gold hoop earring has been a powerful symbol in numerous cultures. Since the earliest days of civilization, both men and women have adorned their bodies with jewelry. The oldest earrings archeologists have discovered are - the now classic - gold hoop style. In 1500 BC Egypt, even cats were adorned with gold hoop earrings. And earrings were turned into a status symbol by emperor Julius Caesar during his reign over Rome. During the golden age of piracy, pirates were known to be flamboyant dressers and are thought to have worn earrings as an essential accessory. Why exactly men of the sea began to put hoops in their ears is anyone’s guess, but there are many legends that claim to explain the fashion but that’s another story. Much later on, hoop earrings style emerged in Mexican subcultures in California and played an essential part in Latin neighborhoods and communities of color. That’s what we call, a powerful legacy!
How to style your gold earrings
Hoop earrings continue to be a jewelry box mainstay, and with all kinds of additional styles to choose from, such as ear cuffs and threaders, sometimes it’s just very pleasant to revert back to the forever classic gold hoop earring look. When it comes to hoop earrings, you’ll find everything from huggies to major statements at Eline Rosina. If you’re new to the hoop trend, consider starting with a gold hoop in a size you feel comfortable wearing. And remember, it’s very hard to go wrong with these; a gold hoop earring is the standard and an eternal classic. If you like to combine your earrings, we have hoops in different sizes to choose from. With some earrings you have the option to purchase individual earrings, meaning that each ear can be pierced and styled differently, leading to more experimentation possibilities and ways to express yourself! You can opt for dainty and delicate combinations or mix contrasting, bold designs for an even more statement look. You can then keep mixing over and over, put infinite combinations together and adapt them to your outfit and mood, making the most out of your jewellery favourites!
