If you’re a jewelry lover, you likely have at least one pair of hoop earrings in your jewelry box. And if you love hoops and diamonds, you can have the best of both worlds by making these two favorites join to create a stunning set of diamond hoop earrings. But exactly how much do you know about hoops? If your diamond jewelry favorites limit you to diamond studs and rings, you’re missing out on so much more.

Are Diamond Hoop Earrings in Style?

Always. Diamond hoop earrings sort of have a vibe of their own, and if we had to pick one or two words to describe them, they’d be: fun and versatile. And although large hoop earrings go in and out of style, smaller diamond hoop earrings are always in. So if you’re worried that styles will change, select a smaller hoop size just to be safe.

Clean Origin Bella Rue Diamond Hoop Earrings

You can find diamond hoops in yellow gold, white gold, sterling silver, two tone, and tri tone. They also come in different shapes like square, heart cut, and oval. Diamond hoops even come in single, double, and triple rows of side-by-side diamonds to make them shine even brighter.

Looking for some extra sparkle and movement? There is no set max number of diamonds for hoops. Shop for a pair of diamond hoops that also have a single diamond dangling from each one. Diamond options can include emerald, round, pear, and even princess cut.

If you prefer to keep your diamonds ethical, then lab created diamond hoops are an excellent option. Just be sure to double check they are true lab diamonds with the store you’re purchasing from.

How To Wear Diamond Hoop Earrings

The beauty of diamond hoops is they are the perfect jewelry to match any outfit, for any occasion. Choose smaller hoop earrings to dress up an everyday look like jeans and a crisp, white t-shirt. Or get adventurous and pair a little black dress with large, statement diamond hoop earrings for a night out. You’ll love how they glimmer and shine, catching the evening light just right.

Never be afraid to mix and match your diamond hoops with your other jewelry. If you have multiple piercings in your ears, add diamond stud earrings or smaller solid gold hoops to your look. Pair them with two tone, tri tone, or even silver bracelets. And while you’re at it, why wear them with only one necklace when you can layer several? Hoops indeed go with everything.

You don’t need to be a jewelry expert to create eye-catching looks, just wear what looks good to you. Don’t compare your jewelry style to others. But if you’re ever in doubt, remember: Hoop earrings are always the perfect finishing touch for elevating any look–no matter how you choose to wear them.

Types of Diamond Hoops

With so many types of diamond hoops out there, it can be hard to find some you love. Luckily, we are here to help! We’ve rounded up a few pairs of diamond hoops we think are perfectly suited to a wide range of tastes and preferences.

Huggie Hoop Earrings

Clean Origin Cecilia 12 MM Huggies

In more general terms, these diamond hoops do exactly what their name implies: they hug. They are smaller diameter hoops that sit close to your earlobes when you wear them. But although they are smaller diameter-wise, they tend to be chunkier overall.

Our Cecilia 12MM Huggies are a prime example of diamond huggie hoop earrings. Available in 14k yellow gold and 14k white gold, these hoops have a total of 16 round diamonds that equal 1/7 carat. They’re small and subtle enough for everyday wear but easily dress up an outfit for a fancier event.

J-Hoop Earrings

Clean Origin Lux 20MM hoops.

Unlike most hoops which form a complete circle, J-hoop earrings don’t because they are made in the shape of the letter J. Thanks to the shape, they fasten differently than a round hoop does and are easier to take on and off.

If you want a pair of J-hoops earrings, search no further than these Lux 20MM Hoops. They are available in 14k yellow gold and 14k white gold, and have a total of 44 round diamonds that equal 5/8 carat. They are huggie hoops but their size makes them perfect if you want huggies that are a little bigger but also don’t want large, statement piece hoops.

Square Hoops

Clean Origin Vita Hoops

If you want to make a statement without relying on size, then square diamond hoop earrings are the way to go. They’re different, they stand out, and they give off a refreshingly modern vibe.

Our Vita Hoops are perfect; they’re not too big or too small. And they give all the sparkle with their total of 42 round diamonds equaling 3/8 carat. Not only is this set of hoop earrings square, but it is also in the huggie hoop style.

Who Popularized Hoop Earrings

It’s hard to pinpoint who made hoop earrings popular. People from all around the world have been wearing them for centuries. But in recent history, celebrities like JLo, Rhianna, Alicia Keys, and Beyoncé are all known for regularly wearing hoop earrings. Alicia Keys in particular seems to set much of her image on hoop earrings. She has hoops on in almost every picture taken of her!

And we can’t even begin to talk about hoop earrings without mentioning the late Tejano music queen, Selena Quintanilla. Selena’s signature style (which people still copy today) was a dramatic blue-red lip complemented by a pair of hoop earrings. The absolute picture of perfection!
