Hoops, the must-have earrings for all on-trend looks

- Categories :

Hoop earrings are a style that has survived the centuries and remain a popular fashion accessory. Their simple, elegant design and versatility make them a great choice for earring styles for all occasions.

From the origin of hoop earrings to the most on-trend designs of the moment, Satellite Paris takes a look at the hoop earring fashion phenomenon.

The origin of hoop earrings

A jewel inherited from times past

Ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman antiquity: archaeologists and anthropologists have found evidence that hoop earrings were worn long ago. These earrings indicated the wearer’s status, were made of silver, gold or bronze, and are thought to have originated in Nubia (present-day Sudan).

Who was the hoop earring style passed on to? History proves it: to everyone! They were a popular piece of jewellery among African and Creole women, after whom they are named in French. At the beginning of the 20th century, they made a remarkable comeback, but remained associated with tribal cultures, particularly Amerindian ones.

Hoop earrings are also associated with the gypsy culture. Dance and music are no strangers to this.      The frenzied rhythms of the guitars and the gypsy music made the hoops on the dancers' ears shimmer and tinkle. Although hoop earrings now worn by all communities, they retain their gypsy, bohemian charm.

The hoop earring trend

In the 1920s, the garçonne haircut, which revealed the ears, and the renewed interest in Orientalism boosted the popularity of hoop earrings and restored their desirability in the eyes of the general public.

Since then, from the disco looks of the 80s to the Latin-influenced hip-hop rhythms of the 90s, hoop earrings have made their way into the most popular looks. They are proudly displayed on the lobes of artists and celebrities such as Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez or Bella Hadid.

Worn by both men and women (earrings were once the preserve of pirates), hoop earrings have become a symbol of female emancipation. They affirm the seductive power of a confident woman. Our unique handmade earrings for women reveal your style and personality at a glance.

What are the trends for hoop earrings?

The circular shape of the hoop is the only standard, but nothing prohibits originality. Our Ninon model and its spiral shape, highlighted by the white mother-of-pearl, proves it.

Hoop earrings can range in size from small earrings that hug the earlobe to maxi earrings that skim the chin. The gold-plated hoop earring is always a safe bet, crafted in delicate metal, in a smooth or twisted style, there is no chance of making a style error. Hoop earrings are available in all styles, from minimalist fine gold-plated metal to highly embellished, there is something for everyone.
