Gold Hoop Earrings

Gold hoop earrings have been a staple of women’s fashion for decades. They tend to come and go, get larger or smaller, but this is one of the classic, timeless pieces of jewelry that most any jeweler carries and sells regularly. Gold hoop earrings come in all sizes, all styles, and are made with a variety of gold and stones embedded in them. They look good on women of all ages, from all different areas of the world and wearing any and all kinds of fashion.

Gold earrings have modern day ties, yet began many years ago as gold became more readily available. Women in modern times tend to have pierced ears, so most gold hoop earrings are for those women who have pierced ears. There are some that clip on or are magnetized for wearers who do not have pierced ears, but they tend to be more difficult to come by. All shapes, styles and sizes are commonly found today whereas decades ago many were simple, smooth hoops.

The classic style gold hoop earring is often a smooth, simple circular shape in a small or large size, thick or thin depending on how they are stylized. More elaborate designs belong to contemporary times, as designers have sought ways to individualize the standard gold hoop earring. Some gold hoop earrings are a complicated tangle of several circles, are tiny with ornate designs, or feature multi-colored gold to create swirls and designs all over the hoop itself. It is even possible to find gold hoop earrings hosting precious or semi-precious gemstones as a part of the body of the earrings.
