Why are gold hoop earrings so popular?

Gold hoop earrings are so popular because they’re just so versatile! Gold hoop earrings have been worn by men and women alike for centuries, so they have firmly become one of the timeless favourites most of us have in our jewellery boxes. There are so many different styles of gold hoops out there, whether that be thin gold hoops to chunky gold hoops and every style in between – there is sure to be something to suit any occasion. Did you know that gold hoop earrings used to represent social status and wealth? Gone are those days, but they still represent different things to different cultures. We’ll now dive into a brief history of gold hoop earrings!

“I am very pleased with these earrings. I love the design, the service was second to none so all in all I couldn’t be happier. Well done.”

Timeline of gold hoop earrings

  • The first hoop earrings originated around 2500 B.C.E. in an Ancient civilisation in what is now known as Sudan.
  • In 1500 B.C.E. Egyptian men and women both wore hoop earrings to enhance their beauty while symbolising their wealth and status with heavy, thick gold hoop earrings.
  • Ancient Roman and Greek women wore gold hoops earrings, although some men wore them as a symbol of high social status.
  • Hoops went out of fashion for a number of centuries, only to return to popularity in the 1820s. Styles during this time were influenced and paid homage to Roman culture, which led to an increase of women wearing light hoop earrings.
  • In the 1910s and 1920s, women began wearing shorter hairstyles that showed off their ears, bringing the hoop earring back into the spotlight. After the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922, gold hoop earrings were worn to symbolise high social status once again.
  • In the 1960s and 1970s, hoop earrings became a signature look and hoops were available in a range of styles, sizes and colours.
  • After going on the back burner during the 1980s, hoop earrings came back with a bang in the 1990s all the way up until the present day and have become a firm favourite in our jewellery boxes!

 “Lovely items. Arrived well. Will purchase here again in the future. Size fit but would perhaps size up next time. Thanks!” 

We are ever increasing our range of gold hoop earrings and from recent feedback we are looking in to providing a wider range of smaller gold hoop earrings, 14k carat gold plated hoop earrings as well as possibly white gold hoop earrings. This will mean that our customers will have a much wider choice of small hoop earrings and large hoop earrings to choose from. Early this year the trend was heading towards smaller hoop earrings and as we end this year the hoop earring is getting wider, chunkier and bigger. Based on run way trends the gold hoop earring is going to get even bigger think textured and crushed metal and shoulder grazing lengths with more adornment such as pearl and crystal.

Care tips for copper magnetic bracelets

At DEMI+CO we have a wide variety of magnetic bracelets from classic copper, stainless steel bracelets, pewter, titanium bracelets and ceramic. Each style of magnetic bracelet requires similar cleaning and storage requirements but also there are slight differences. Copper magnetic bracelets for example are susceptible to oxidisation, whereas titanium and stainless steel can withstand water but not lotions or cleaning chemicals. Pewter is a little more hardwearing but it also requires a regular clean to ensure it stays at optimum quality.
