Finding The Right Hoop Earrings For You

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.

The roots of the hoop-earring phenomenon literally stretch back to the dawn of civilization. On view in the Metropolitan Museum of Artâs Ancient Near Eastern Art gallery is a pair of simple gold hoops from Mesopotamia dating to 2,600â2,500 B.C. that experts agree is among the oldest known examples. Hoop earrings can also be found in the Metâs Egyptian art gallery as well as in the museumâs displays of Greek and Roman art.

What inspired the original hoop design and why it was adopted by so many jewelers in the ancient world are unknown. It doesnât have an origin story, feeling rather like the jewelry equivalent of the wheel. There just seems to be a logic to a circle that goes from the front to the back of the lobe.

âHoops have been worn for millennia because they are unfathomably chic,â says Annabel Davidson, the editor of Vanity Fair UKâs special jewelry edition. âThe way they accentuate the jawline, elongate the face and add a touch of flamboyance to a look is clearly a timeless expression of confidence, femininity and sartorial savvy.â
