What are Creole hoops?

When it comes to earrings, Creole is a style of hoop that consists of a hoop that has an inconsistent thickness, and is usually broader at the bottom and narrower at the top. Sometimes Creole gold hoop earrings are made of a chunky hoop, but they are most commonly seen in the shape of gold oval hoops. The shape, however, of a Creole hoop earring can differ, and you may come across some really unique designs consisting of a triangle shape, or even something more unusual!


It’s often thought that the Creole earrings style originated in New Orleans, only to then be distributed and crafted all around the world. These gold twist hoop earrings are usually decorated with beautiful, intricate patterns and designs. Creole earrings are not only a popular fashion accessory, but are integrated in many cultures around the world that gives this accessory much more prominence and meaning.

Why are sleeper earrings called that?

Sleeper earrings are small in size, which makes them unobtrusive and comfortable to wear. As they are usually plain and simple, 9ct gold sleeper earrings are intended to be worn at night to keep a pierced ear from closing, while still being comfortable for the wearer. This is a similar design to a huggie earring, as these are designed to ‘hug’ very close to the earlobe - hence the name, and are usually small hoop earrings. Both styles of earring are very popular and are great to be worn every day.

What is the difference between huggies and hoops?

As mentioned earlier, huggie earrings are a type of small hoop which hugs closely to your earlobe for a comfortable, snug fit. Hoop earrings come in a variety of different sizes, but huggie hoops measure closer to the ear than any other style. Huggies are not only popular with those with new piercings, but people looking for a pair of simple gold hoop earrings that will become a staple in their jewellery collection, and will stand the test of time long after trends have come and gone.

What is the perfect size hoop earring?

The size of the hoop you choose to wear, and are comfortable wearing, is all down to personal preference. However, our recommendations when it comes to size is that 20mm to 30mm hoops are a great size for everyday wear, but smaller and larger hoops are also popular - so just go with whatever feels right for you. Smaller, huggie style hoops are around 10mm to 14mm and are a practical yet chic choice, which makes them a great investment to your jewellery collection. Larger hoops can be worn to make a bold statement and express yourself, but if you feel more comfy rocking a pair of small chunky gold hoop earrings, you know you best and you should go with whatever feels right and whatever look you love.

Why do hoop earrings make you look prettier?

Hoop earrings draw attention to and frame your face, which draws the eye to your beautiful features. It could also be argued that if you feel confident and beautiful in your jewellery, you will look prettier - as confidence is the most attractive thing you can wear! I also believe that there is something greater about the design and geometry of a lovely pair of gold hoops that really work wonders. By creating a pleasant symmetry, which is proven to be appealing to the eye, this in turn causes your face to appear symmetrical. However, going back to my previous point, if you feel great, it will show on the outside and this will make you look great too.


Yellow Gold Oval Crystal Kiss Hoop

These truly luxurious gold oval hoops have a stunning glamour to them. The intricate and delicate diamantes add something extra special, that will catch the light and make you shine. These hoop earrings are ideal for those special occasions such as birthdays, dinners, or black tie events.

 gold oval hoop earrings

Are hoops better than studs?

It depends on the piercing and the person as to whether hoops or stud earrings are better. For example, if you have freshly pierced ears in the earlobe or outer ear cartilage area, such as a helix piercing, we recommend choosing a stud earring, rather than a hoop or any dangling styles. However, once your piercing has fully healed you can wear any style of earrings, from gold sleepers, huggie hoops, studs, long drop earrings and even large, chunky hoops. What you choose jewellery wise once your piercings are healed is all down to personal preference and what you like the look and feel of more, however it is very important that you don’t rush the healing process and only change your new piercings when it has fully healed.

Who started wearing hoop earrings first?

Hoop earrings actually originated in Africa. According to Yekaterina Barbash, Associate Curator of Egyptian art at the Brooklyn Museum, hoops date back to Nubia, which was a civilization that existed in the 4th Century, in what is now present day Sudan. In Ancient Egypt, both men and women wore hoop earrings as an expression of beauty. It is not surprising then that Cleopatra, Nefertiti, and Tutankhamen all famously chose to adorn themselves with gold hoop earrings. Barbash also said that the Ancient Egyptians wore hoops as a symbol of sexuality.
