Classic hoop earrings get a high fashion
makeover

Hoop
earrings (aka: the little black dress of the jewelry world), are making a
big splash on celebrities and fashionistas alike this season. And the good news
is: you don’t have to jump through hoops to get a shining pair for your own
jewelry box.

Classic hoops have always been a fashion staple for women of all ages, and
while the style is great for anything from a board meeting to a girls’ night
out, we’re also seeing them on the red carpets as celebrities and their stylists
bring basics back to high fashion.

From Angelina Jolie to Julia Roberts, the A-List is bringing circle chic to
the center ring, and the sky is the limit when it comes to size and style. We’re
seeing everything from conservative
gold pieces
to
dazzling diamonds
and gemstone
looks
, one-hoop earrings the size of a quarter to interlocking saucer-sized
styles.

Designers like Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin and Christian LaCroix are using them
on their catwalks, and tribal chic is a hot fashion trend fresh from the runways
that brings the hoop in the loop with materials like wood, beads and feathers.

Now we know you most likely already own a pair of
classic gold hoops, but now is the time to take the look to new levels. Try a larger
size. Add some color with a semi-precious gemstone. Grab a pair in a different
metal. Go big with an all-diamond pair. And Jewelry.com has hundreds of styles
for your browsing pleasure from the retailers you trust at prices you can
afford.
