September 24, 2022


With their size range and seemingly infinite design possibilities, hoop earrings are a fun and versatile way to add some depth to your ear stack. And, as the trends of the 2000s make their way back into our fashion-loving hearts (and closets), hoop earrings are considered the “it” earring. Whether it be a pair of large tube hoop earrings or the cuff-like huggie hoops, there is a style for every lobe.

If you’re looking for the best hoop earrings, have we got the list for you. With one of our favorite earring styles making a comeback, we had to find the best ones for every style. From the best option for everyday wear to the best gold and silver hoops, we compiled a collection of the best hoop earrings.

Best Gold

These yellow gold hoop earrings from Mejuri made our list for their simple design—ideal for everyday wear—and are made out of hollowed 14K gold, so they are ultra-lightweight. They’re a Byrdie editor favorite due to their durability (you can wear them swimming!), quality, comfortability, and timeless style. On top of that, they have a great price point as similar styles typically run closer to $200 per pair.

Best Oblong

For those who prefer a hoop that is less circular in shape, oblong is where it’s at. These are made from sterling silver plated in gold and feature a modern hinged design that drops down about a half-inch. Simple yet statement-making, they are a great pair for everyday or special occasions.

Best Squiggle

Hoops don’t have to be circular or oval—they can be squiggly! These squiggle hoops from Almasika BERCEAU are designed with a thin 18K gold band formed into a fluid squiggle design.

Best Pearl

Nothing says versatile quite like a two-in-one pair of hoops. These hoops from Mateo are made with 14K gold and decorated in diamonds with a detachable pearl charm. Wear them on their own as a beautiful pair of diamond hoops or with pearl charms to create a dangle effect.
