Hoop earrings have become quite popular amongst all women. While once reserved for
teenaged girls or young adults, hoops have evolved into a number of different styles and are now seen
as quite appropriate for many individuals. Hoop earrings come in many styles, designs, and metals, and
can even be personalized with phrases such as “angel” or the name of the individual wearing them. For
formal occasions, smaller hoops should be worn, while for nights out on the town larger sized hoops can
add a vibrant flare to an outfit. If larger hoops are worn, consider finding earrings made of lighter
materials as not to add too much weight to the ear.
One important aspect of hoop earrings is the backing. If a hoop earring is large, finding an
earring with a wider back is a good idea, as smaller backings can slip through the opening of the ear as
the weight of the earring pulls the ear down. Larger backings are also significantly more comfortable. If
you wish to wear hoop earrings and you work with children or in other scenarios where the earrings
could be pulled upon, finding earrings with backings that pop open can keep the ear from becoming
torn, as the earring will release itself and gently come out. This can allow for earrings to be lost more
easily, but is well worth it for those who fear having their ear torn by young children.
Hoop earrings with phrases or designs inside of them are popular amongst many women. For
younger women, cute nicknames such as “baby” are desired; however “mother” or “grandma” can look
very nice in the hoop section of earrings as well. At times, designs can be placed around the actual hoop,
while other hoops appear plainer. There are hoop style earrings available for any taste.
