12 pairs of hoop earrings to add into your summer 2023 jewellery collection

You don't need us to tell you that hoop earrings are a total wardrobe classic – that's pretty much a given. When it comes to jewellery, some are of the opinion that less is more. "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off," is a quote most famously attributed to legendary designer Coco Chanel. However, in the event of feeling that something is missing from your outfit, sometimes the only solution is to add something timeless.

Hoop earrings originated around 5,000 years ago back in Nubia – which we now call Sudan. The jewellery style has stood the test of time, still accounting for a major part in the accessory world in 2023.

Just about every single celebrity – Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber to name a few – has been pictured wearing the jewellery classic. The beauty of a pair of hoops lies in its versatility – they can be part of your everyday office uniform, or perhaps form the finishing touch to an elaborate outfit reserved for a glamorous event.

Plus, with so many different styles out there, finding a design that suits your complexion needn't be a challenge. Gold is perhaps the obvious choice – as a general rule, pieces with yellow undertones tend to suit those with warmer skin tones, whereas white gold and silver looks exquisite on those on the cooler end of the spectrum. Whether you prefer mini huggies, classic creoles or hoops large enough to skim your shoulders, there's a perfect pair out there for everyone.
