How to Choose the Perfect Hoops

June 21, 2021Trending

Hoops are without a question one of the most essential pieces of fine jewelry (there’s a reason why we called our latest edition Essential Hoops). They’re an everyday staple and, depending which you choose, are completely unique to your style while making you feel just a little more put together. From making a statement to providing a minimal accent, each style and size adds something different—one hoop does not necessarily fit all. Our advice? Round out your collection for maximum versatility. Read on for our definitive guide on hoops and how to shop for them.


Our hoops range in diameter size 10mm to 45mm to give you a full range to work with. Each size adds something different to each look. If you have multiple piercings, start bigger at the bottom of your lobe and work up your ear in descending size for the perfect everyday hoop stack.


Whether you’re just dipping your toes, starting or growing your collection, our "best of" superlative hoops. Get your tapping finger ready.

Whether it’s your second, third or even fifth piercing, this hoop is for maximizing your ear estate. 

5. Best Cartilage Hoop

These are your everyday hoops, the ones that withstand rain, heat, sweat and are designed with comfort in mind so you never have to take them off.


Versatility is key and medium sized hoops can bring a range of styling functions to elevate each look.


When it’s time to make a statement, go for large hoops. This size demands attention and can be called on for a night out on the town.
