The most sophisticated hoop earrings to buy right now

The most sophisticated hoop earrings to buy right now

Hoop earrings have made a triumphant return for SS19. Designers have gone bigger, bolder and better, enhancing plain gold hoops with everything from sculptural pearls, hefty diamonds and handcrafted stones.

Designers like Oscar de la Renta and Moschino have proven that hoop earrings come in all shapes, sizes and textures. For me, size matters; if there’s one version that dominates all, it’s an oversized hoop. But if you’re into super-thin styles, I’m obsessed with Melissa Joy Manning’s designs, available in 14k gold. If you’re looking for a shoulder-grazer, opt for something colourful from Jacquemus to elevate your LBD.

When dressing for work, stay classy with pearl hoops from Massimo Dutti, or wear them with jeans to instantly update any day look. For glam girls, hoops encrusted with diamonds from Mango are perfect for a last-minute night out. For something more culturally creative, MoMuse played with interlocking loops in different metals, and for those obsessed with everything nature-inspired, Chupi’s new twig-like hoop earrings are an absolute must-have.

Deck out your jewellery box with these styles worth investing in now.
