A pair of hoop earrings go with just about any outfit. Hoop earrings are one of the lightest pieces of jewelry you can wear. As one of the oldest accessories in human existence, hoop earrings have significant meanings for different cultures. Once upon a time, hoop earrings wear worn by kings and queens to signify power and social status. Hoop earrings are also considered a statement of unity and strength and often times hoop earrings stand out, just like the strong women who wear them. 


The different types of the meaning of hoop earrings indicate that these types of earrings have strong roots in many cultures, but now they are used worldwide by men and women. In fact, there are many unique styles available. At Helen Ficalora, there is a wide variety of options available for hoop earrings. We can help the buyer choose the perfect pair of hoop earrings for their style.


How Do I Measure My Earring Size? 

Every ear and piercing is different, so not every size of the hoop will fit the same for everyone. However, the best way to know what size is best for you is to take a measurement of your piercing. You can do this by holding the ruler up to the ear and measuring the distance between the piercing and the edge of the ear.


Some of the standard sizings of earrings are 8mm or ¼ inch hoop earrings – the inside opening would be around 6.5mm to 7mm. For hoop earrings that are 10mm or 3.8 inches in size, the inside opening for your ear would measure around 8.5mm to 9mm. Lastly, for hoop earring that is around 12mm or ½ inch wide, the inside opening would be around 10mm to 11mm wide.


These are some standard sizing for hoop earrings that are generally followed at our store. These sizes will give you a good idea of what kind of hoop earrings you would like to wear.



What Is The Most Popular Size of Hoop Earrings?

If the customer is not able to measure the size of their ear, they should go for the most popular size which is usually Medium. The large hoop earrings usually measure around 40mm and the dainty gold hoop earrings measure around 12mm. In fact, the medium hoops at Helen Ficalora are so popular because they are so flattering and versatile.

What to Look For When Shopping for Dainty Hoop Earrings?

Dainty hoop earrings are often a staple in jewelry collections that many women love to wear every day. Due to this reason and because they are often so dainty and thin, they should be made using high-quality metals just like Helen Ficalora’s 14K solid gold Dainty Hoop Earrings, Rose Gold Huggie Earrings, Large Gold Hoops, or even the Silver Huggie Hoop Earrings.



What to Look For When Shopping for Huggie Hoop Earrings?

Helen Ficalora generally provides two different types of hoop earrings. We provide customers with regular gold hoop earrings and gold huggie hoop earrings. The huggie hoop earrings are a style of little hoop earrings that sit close to and ‘hug’ the earlobe. These earrings also tend to be thicker than the standard hoop earrings. The huggie hoop earrings have a curved back that clicks into place. These earrings are usually smaller and can be placed on different piercings, therefore should be measured differently. Whereas the regular hoop earrings usually measure around 18-20mm. These tiny hoops suit smaller faces and those who want to rock an ear party. 


What to Look For When Shopping for Large Hoop Earrings?

When shopping for large hoop earrings, it is best to look for simple and elegant jewelry designs. Large hoop earrings already make a bold statement because of their size. Hence, it is ideal to opt for a more elegant and timeless look. At Helen Ficalora, the solid gold huggie earrings such as the Large Oval Hoop Earrings are ideal earrings to purchase that look timeless and simple to wear for any type of outfit. Whether you are looking for dainty, huggie, or large hoop earrings, you will find the perfect set at Helen Ficalora.
