Hoop earrings: their circular form is the symbol of eternity, so it’s apt they’ve been a stylish go-to for centuries. This season however, designers have toyed with form, texture and embellishment to create exciting variations. It’s time to see hoops in a whole new light.
“Alighieri’s woven three-quarter hoops are artfully twisted to create the illusion of interwoven links - inspired by the cathartic role of water and tears in Dante's epic poem, the Divine Comedy.”
“Copenhagen-based designer Maria Black is renowned for her hoops, and this oversized, high-polished pair feature textural ribbed detailing that creates a sweeping, rope-like effect.”
“Pearls are going nowhere - and each of Dinny Hall’s scalloped earrings are defined by four lustrous incarnations. The result is a ladylike take on a classic.”
“London-based Theodora Warre gives her signature style a personalised twist; adorning one high-polished hoop with a crystal-encrusted initial charm.”
“Who said hoops should be minimal? Characterised by six faceted blue topaz stones, Astley Clarke’s petite earrings demand to be looked at.”
