History


Ear piercing is the oldest form of body modification and people have been doing it for thousands of ears. Ear piercing is still extremely popular and ear lobes are still the most common place for people to have pierced.

Gold Hoop Earrings are a staple in any jewellery box and they never go out of style, but where did this trend originate from? Different ancient civilisations have been adorning their bodies in jewellery for thousands of years. The earliest evidence of Gold Hoop Earrings being worn was discovered by archaeologists. The earrings they found had belonged to Sumerian women from 2500BC, who had also seemed partial to the classic gold hoop style we still love today! (Refinery29).

Hoop earrings date back to early civilisations and have been documented by archaeologists across different periods of time in different areas of the world. For many, hoop earrings hold cultural significance, which dates back centuries. Ancient Egyptians would adorn themselves with hoop earrings, and sometimes even their cats which were deemed the most sacred of animals (Refinery29). From the Hmong women of Vietnam to African American women during the Black Power movement in 1960, many different women have adopted different variations of hoop earrings, which holds different significance in each culture (i-D, Vice).

Earrings were turned into a status symbol by Julius Caesar during his reign over Ancient Rome (Refinery29). Interestingly, earrings were seen as a symbol of power and were worn mostly by men. Right through until, and including, the Elizabethan era men of power and nobility would use ear piercings to show their wealth (All That’s Interesting).

A document published in 1577 by clergyman William Harrison is quoted as saying: "Some lusty courtiers and gentlemen of courage do wear either rings of gold, stones or pearls in their ears." (Wikipedia)
Earlier evidence shows men wearing earrings way back in Ancient Persia, when carved images of Persian soldiers were discovered, they showed the men wearing an earring (Wikipedia).

Questions and Answers


How do you wear Gold Hoop Earrings?


One of the best things about Gold Hoop Earrings is that they are so versatile. Depending on the size, thickness or how intricate and interesting the design is, gold hoops can be worn by themselves as a statement piece for any outfit.
large gold hoop earrings can be worn both day and night, either to dress up a plain t-shirt and jeans combo or to compliment your favourite Little Black Dress. Thinner gold hoops look fantastic if they are paired with thin, layered gold necklaces and add a touch of class to any look.

Are hoop earrings unprofessional?

We are extremely excited about our new range of art prints that are downloadable for our customers to take away and print to go in to frames or produced on to canvas. We at DEMI+CO have always been passionate about beautiful things be it jewellery or art and both seem to go so well. Not only that but as a team we are all passionate about homewares and interiors and can’t wait to introduce new pieces and new lines into the collection.

Before we decided to create art prints online, we did a great deal of research into this area. We wanted to give our customers something that was unique but still popular with our range of fans. We also wanted to ensure that our customers would be interested in buying art prints, so we do what we do best we ran some polls and asked a few questions, and we had a very positive response! The next step for us was to work along side a reputable, experienced and talented artist that had a fresh take on classic images. That’s when we came across Hamish, when we met him – over zoom we just got on straight away and it didn’t take us long to decide on working with him.
