Finding the Right earrings for You

In the United States, ear piercing didn’t really become popular until the 1950s and ‘60s, but our desire for a dazzling pair of vintage earrings has deeper roots than that. In fact, wearing earrings actually goes back thousands of years, and you can find many tangible connections between now and then in how we continue to talk about these treasured accessories.

Women wore ornamental earrings — studs and hoops at the very least — in Ancient Egypt, which is home to mines that are among the earliest sources of emeralds in the world. Emerald earrings are highly prized today, and their quality lies in their rich, saturated color. The highest-quality emeralds are green or bluish-green. Earrings worn by the affluent in early Roman civilizations were set with precious stones such as diamonds and pearls, and a clean-looking pop of pearl on the front of the lobe is as timeless as ever. Hoop earrings are imbued with symbolism and cultural significance for many, and on view in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Ancient Near Eastern Art Gallery is a pair of simple gold hoops from Mesopotamia dating to between 2600 and 2500 B.C.

Today, ear piercing is very popular all over the world, and, as a result, it is difficult to overstate how much everyone pines for a good pair of earrings — modernist drop earrings, glamorous Victorian hoops, geometrically complex chandelier earrings, you name it. Sure, jewelry trends and the fashion darlings of social media come and go, but earrings have a staying power that seems impenetrable: The still-strong love affair between British royals and Cartier earrings is more than a century old, glossy 1970s hoops from legacy houses such as Bulgari and Van Cleef & Arpels remain the statement makers they’ve always been and although people have been stacking earrings for many moons, the allure of an expertly mismatched stack of charms and studs still feels fresh and new.

While there is no shortage of modern earring designs to choose from, the classics, like coral earrings, Art Deco–style earrings and diamond drop earrings are still heavy hitters. On 1stDibs, find a wide range of antique, new and vintage earrings today.

Questions About Antique Hoop Earrings
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    No, hoop earrings are not outdated. In fact, it is almost impossible to overstate how popular hoop earrings are today. They are routinely seen adorning the ears of high-profile women, ranging from Michelle Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B. For the Spring 2019 collections, statement hoops showed up in the runway shows of Valentino, Sonia Rykiel and Loewe, among many others. Find hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    C hoop earrings are hoops with a specific design. Unlike circular hoops, they have a distinctive C shape. At the top of the C is usually a post that slips into your ear piercing and is secured by a backing. The bottom end of the C usually hits behind or below the ear, depending on the size of the earrings. Shop a large collection of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 27, 2023
    Creole hoop earrings are round earrings with a certain design. Their name comes from the tradition of their wear by women of African descent in the Caribbean and New Orleans, giving them another name: New Orleans hoops. Unlike other hoops that are of uniform thickness from end to end, Creole hoops vary in thickness. Most are thinner at the ends and thickest along the bottom part that hangs below the ear. On 1stDibs, shop a range of Creole hoop earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    How thick hoop earrings should be depends on your personal preferences. Thickness will impact how hoops feel and look. Many people find small, thick huggie hoop earrings to be comfortable and versatile enough for everyday wear. Large, thick hoops are often reserved for nights out or special occasions, as their size can make them heavy. If you're looking for infinity hoops that are free of posts and wires, consider the diameter of your piercing when comparing thicknesses. Because these earrings slide through the ear, the thickest ones may not fit some piercings. Shop a diverse assortment of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    An infinity hoop earring is a circular earring made of a hollow wire tube. One end of the earring slips into the tube, so once the hoops are in place, you can't see the closure. Some people also refer to this type of earring as an infinite hoop or endless hoop. Shop a variety of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    A huggie hoop earring is a hoop earring that is so small that it touches the bottom of the ear lobe. As a result, the earring looks like it's hugging the ear. Usually, huggie earrings are thick and have either a lever or hinged closure. Find a variety of huggie hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    Hoop earrings are attractive for a number of reasons. First, they create a flattering frame for the face. Depending on their shape and size, they can draw attention to key features like the jawline, cheekbones or eyes. Hoop earrings also produce subtle, graceful movements that don't distract attention from the face the way some dangle earrings can. Plus, hoop earrings can coordinate with a wide range of attire, from jeans to little black dresses to formal wear. Find a wide variety of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 21, 2023
    Hoop earrings are unlikely to ever be out of style. Even though trends frequently change, hoops have been popular for centuries, and for good reason, because they are stunning and easy to wear. From season to season, some variation of hoop earrings is usually trending, and the classic simple round hoop in a silver or gold tone is a timeless look. On 1stDibs, explore a diverse assortment of hoop earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 21, 2023
    What hoop earrings symbolize is open to interpretation. Due to their shape, some people associate hoops with eternity, unity or balance. To others, they represent prestige, wealth or power. It's also possible to wear hoop earrings without assigning any special symbolic meaning to them. Explore a wide range of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    What gold hoop earrings mean is a matter of personal interpretation. In ancient Greece and Rome, gold hoops were a symbol of wealth and power. They were also a status symbol in ancient Egypt, where the warm color of the metal and the circular shape represented the sun god Ra. Today, many people don't assign any symbolic meaning to the earrings and instead wear gold hoops because they like their appearance. On 1stDibs, find a selection of gold hoop earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    The average or standard size for hoop earrings is 20 to 30 millimeters. At 20 millimeters, hoops are roughly the size of a penny, while 25-millimeter hoops compare to a quarter. Half dollars are around the same size as 30-millimeter hoop earrings. Shop a diverse assortment of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2023
    What you call small hoop earrings depends on their style. Hoops so small that they touch the earlobe are known as huggie earrings or huggies because they look like they are hugging the lobes. Slightly larger small hoops that leave space between the metal and the earlobe may be referred to as sleeper or sleeper-style earrings. Explore a variety of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    Whether you can sleep with gold hoop earrings on largely depends on personal preference and the size of the earrings. Smaller huggies and sleeper-style hoops may not get in the way of sleep. However, larger styles are more likely to get caught on your pillow, bedding, hair or clothing during the night. Generally, it's a good idea to remove your earrings before going to bed. On 1stDibs, find a large collection of hoop earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    The difference between Creole and hoop earrings comes down to the specificity of the terms. Hoop earrings are any earrings that form a loop from the ear. They come in a variety of thicknesses, sizes and shapes. Creole earrings are hoop earrings that vary in thickness. Usually, they are slimmest close to the ear and wider at the bottom of the loop. Their name comes from the tradition of their wear by women of African descent in the Caribbean and New Orleans, giving them another name: New Orleans hoops. On 1stDibs, explore a large selection of hoop earrings.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    The best thickness for hoop earrings depends on personal preference. Keep in mind that the diameter or width of the earrings will determine how they look when worn. Generally, thinner hoop earrings are subtler, while thicker ones make a bolder statement. In addition, thickness can affect the weight and how easily the earring fits into piercings. Shop a large selection of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    The most popular hoop earring size can change from season to season, depending on trends. Hoops are always chic, but the small sizes are more versatile, making huggies the ideal jewelry for a day that has you dashing between yoga class, business meetings and a much-needed night out. "Hugging" the earlobes so they won't get tangled in your hair or catch on clothing, they make any outfit you wear feel put together. Explore a variety of hoop earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
