If you’re going to splurge on a quality pair of gold hoops, look no further than Grown Brilliance. Not only does the brand has some of the best dainty jewelry that you’re bound to love, but its näas Bombe 1/5 ctw Round Lab Grown Diamond Huggie Hoop Earrings bring a little bit of everything to the table: a gold design, a diamond design and a match-all design.


With nearly 40,000 rave reviews, the Pavoi 14K Gold Hoops are the less-than-$15 jewelry buy you need if you’re all about Amazon jewelry. Not only are they incredibly versatile, but we have them and they have held up for months.

AMYO Jewelry

If there’s a pair we reach for quite often (whether we’re off to a dinner date or to our 9-to-5), the AMYO Thick-Twisted Hoops are it. For less than $60, we’re colored impressed by the look and quality of them. They’re the quintessential perfect gold hoops that also make a wonderful gift.


If you love the look of gold hoops but are into minimalist fashion and that thin, mod look, the Mejuri Editor Hoops are your best bet. They’re less than $100, have a wonderful gold plating and look great with any outfit or hairstyle.

Best Diamond Hoop Earrings

Brilliant Earth

Brilliant Earth is one of the best online retailers for diamonds (just check out our guide to the best engagement rings for proof), and its 18K White Gold Echo Diamond Hoop Earrings are immaculate. Though a splurge just shy of $2,000, they’ll be treasured for years of stylish, timeless wear.

Best Silver Hoop Earrings


Affordably priced at less than $20, the Nine West Infinite Shine Twisted Hoop Earrings bring a little something-something to your overall look (and elevate your standard hoop earrings just a bit). To match the other jewelry in your box, this set is a winner.


Whether you have a wedding to head off to (read: best cocktail dresses) or a GNO (read: best bodysuits), the SHASHI Statement Drop Hoop Earrings have our full attention. They add a bit of glitz and glamour to your look but can be dressed down as well.

Kay Jewelers

Add a bit of shape to your typical hoop earrings with the Diamond In-and-Out 1/4-Carat Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings from Kay Jewelers. Right now, they’re less than $200 and are ideal if you can use a new pair of evening earrings (that are just as fashionable for all-day wear, too).

Best Small Hoop Earrings


Small hoop earrings are the secret weapon in our back pocket for adorning our fashion look in the best way possible. Specifically, we can’t get over BaubleBar’s Leona Earrings that are less than $40 and have much shape and structure. Plus, they’re so shiny.


What’s better than one pair of small hoop earrings? Six pairs, of course. You’ll never need to shop for hoop earrings ever again as this set from Amazon has all the curated shapes and styles you need. Plus, grab them while they’re on sale for an extreme discount.


Any ornate pair of hoop earrings receives our stamp of approval, including BRACHA’s Tahiti Small Hoops. Offered at Revolve, they border on statement earrings but we think they’re just the right amount of subtle-pop for your ensemble.

Best Pearl Hoop Earrings


Channel Audrey Hepburn with your dressed-up look with the Pearlada Pearl Drop Hoop Earrings. We truly can’t believe they’re less than $15 and not at all surprised they’re an Amazon best-seller. You’re bound to receive many compliments on them, too.


If we’re being honest, statement pearl earrings are one of our favorite ways to accessorize. For just $12 at Lulus, you can’t beat the Wise Idea Gold & Pearl Hoop Earrings. They pair perfectly with jeans or your best midi dress, too.


How dainty and precious are the Sterling Forever Imitation Pearl Hoop Earrings? They look so much more expensive than they are and we must say — they’re a hidden gem on the internet. Pick them up at Nordstrom for your next great gift.

Best Huggie Hoop Earrings


Gorjana is a standout jewelry brand for its sustainably sourced pieces, and its Diamond Pavé Huggies deserve all the acclaim. If you’re in need of a new, everyday set to take you from good to glam, these are them.


How chic! Natalie B Jewelry is one of our favorite brands for unique pieces, and its Marga Huggy Hoop Earring is no exception. They’re extremely versatile, too; if you wear neutral tones in your wardrobe often, they’ll accompany your look head-on.

Kendra Scott

For a girly touch, we adore the Kendra Scott Ari Heart Gold Huggie Earrings. They’re one of the brand’s best-sellers, have a sparkly touch and are the cutest pair to hang from your ears (at least in our eyes, but wouldn’t you agree?)

Best Big Hoop Earrings

1. Lucky Brand Gold Large Tubular Hoop Earrings, $32, original price: $35


For thick, chunky and large hoops, we’re leaving it all to Lucky Brand. Its Gold Large Tubular Hoop Earrings are a steal for just $35 and add a definite statement to your outfit, whether you’re off to a business meeting or a formal occasion.
