How to Wear Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are a timeless jewelry staple. There’s a hoop earring for everyone, whether you love a traditional oversized gold hoop or a minimalistic huggie earring. This earring style is universally flattering and deserves a spot in your jewelry rotation.

Unlike studs, hoop earrings require a little extra TLC. While they’re a wearable earring style that you can incorporate into your everyday wardrobe, these gold earrings are typically heavier.

Are you looking for inspiration for styling hoop earrings? Check out our in-depth guide on how to style hoop earrings.


Types of Hoop Earrings

There’s a type of hoop earring for every occasion, with different sizes and silhouettes to choose from. At Lucery, we make our hoop earrings using 100% recycled solid 925 sterling silver and finished with 18k gold plating or 18k platinum plating.

Here are three of the most popular types of hoop earrings:

  • Sparkly zirconia hoops: These medium hoop earrings will add a subtle touch of glamour to your outfit. Our ‘Brave Trail Hoop’ is the perfect plus one for date night or as a signature earring style.
  • Oversized gold hoops: Wearing hoops with a larger silhouette can create the illusion of naturally elongating your face and slimming your features. Our classic oval hoop earringshave a contemporary silhouette for the minimalist at heart.
  • Structural hoops: If you’re shopping for statement earrings, look no further than our Untamed Fortitude’ hoops. These hoop earrings, available in silver and gold, are designed to mimic the shape of flames for an elevated but edgy look.

How to Clean Your Hoop Earrings

Regularly cleaning your earrings is the best way to reduce the risk of infection and keep your hoop earrings looking brand new. You should spot-clean your earrings between wears and regularly deep-clean your earrings, especially if you wear them frequently.

Clean your hoop earrings by:

  • Dip cotton wool into salt water and rub it along the earring post.
  • Place the earring into a saline solution if it requires more TLC.
  • Use a soft cloth to remove any dirt from your earrings. We recommend using the small cleaning cloth that comes in your Lucery box.
  • Air dry your hoop earrings away from direct sunlight.
  • Store your earrings in your Lucery branded dust bag.

How to Put in Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings typically have either a stud back or a hinge closure. The former is easy to wear as you push the bar through your piercing and secure it with the backing. Hinge hoop earrings can be a little tricky to secure as the backing locks into place with a secure bar. Our ‘Youthful Ambition’ hoop is a classic hinged style.

You can put in hinged hoop earrings by:

  • Opening the hinged clasp by gently pulling the post loose from the clasp.
  • Use one hand to hold your ear and the other to place the earring bar through your piercing.
  • When the bar is inserted, lift the back of the hoop to meet it and gently push to click it in place.
