Diamond Hoop Earrings
Your overall look mostly depends on the clothes, makeup, and the jewelry you wear. Making sure all of these elements go well with one another, and suit you best, is the key to a great look. The choice of earrings is especially important to a woman’s overall look. They compliment her face. Each person has a different face shape (round, heart-shaped, oval, or rectangular). The shape of the face, the style, and length of the hair all determine the design of earrings that will best suit you.
If the color and style are right for you, hoops will be like two spotlights adding a glow to your face.
In this article I would like to concentrate on the jewelry of the season: Diamond Hoop Earrings.
Hoop earrings can be traced to Africa, dating back to ancient Nubia, a civilization traced to the middle stone age (30,000 BCE), into the Dynastic Era of Egypt (2950 BCE), up to about 4th Century AD, and is currently Sudan. According to Yekaterina Barbash, associate curator of Egyptian Art at the Brooklyn Museum, the oldest earrings archaeologists have discovered belonged to Sumerian women who lived in 2500 BC who favored the now classic, gold hoop style. Different variations of the hoop have been adopted by a range of cultures around the world, from the Hmong women of Vietnam to the Gadaba tribe of India.
In ancient Egypt, both men and women, including Egyptian royalty; queens and pharaohs like Nefertiti, Hatshepsut, Tutankhamun, and Cleopatra, wore hoop earrings. For Egyptians, earrings were seen as something that enhanced one’s beauty and sexuality. Egyptians that were not royalty were also buried wearing their hoop earrings, to enhance their beauty and appeal in their afterlife.
An important factor for the choice of earrings is the occasion. Earrings come in different styles, sizes, colors, and metals. Some are for everyday wear, others are better suited for special occasions.
The smallest hoops are referred to as Huggies or hug earrings. Worn in pierced ears, 'Huggies' are a popular style of earring where the setting actually 'hugs' the earlobe. The earrings attach to the ears with a post that fits between two halves of the hoop. They come in many different widths, the wider they are the more noticeable they will be. Huggies are ideal for everyday wear. From just white diamonds to other more colorful styles, each offers a refreshing sparkle and bold vibrancy to frame your face. Classic Huggies come in a circular shape, but today there are so many innovative styles that have switched up the classic hoop game.
Many designers have added decorations and geometric shapes to define unique and original designs. There’s a pair for every taste. They are safe to wear, even for kids.
Small hoops come in sizes: 8mm to 13mm.
You can wear them all day. They go with everything and aren’t over-the-top for work. They go well with every outfit and short or long hair and are perfect if you are the kind of woman that doesn't like to change earrings on a regular basis.
Medium hoops come in sizes: 14mm to 40mm.
Medium and large gold or silver earrings have a geometrical, modern look when worn with casual simple clothes. They add chic and a sense of sophistication to a woman.
Large hoops come in sizes: 41 to 70mm.
Larger and more expensive hoops are perfect for a night out. They draw the most attention to the face, especially if you wear your hair up and add red lipstick.
Large diamond hoop earrings or ones with other colored stones are suited to wear when you go out on special occasions, and when you want to draw attention and make a strong impression. They can be thinner if micro-pave diamonds are used, or heavier and wider if bigger diamonds are used. They will definitely draw a lot of attention to your face. Large diamond hoops that sparkle with every step makes a strong statement. Large diamond hoops are an invitation to be dressed to perfection. Wear your hair up to fully expose your neck and the earrings, this look will have everyone notice you when you enter the room.
XL diamond hoop earrings were a of the favorite Spring runways. This trend of larger-than-life hoop earrings is seen on many celebrities who are embracing the look. We all know that celebrities are trend-setters, it doesn’t take long before fashionable women start to purchase them. One reason to wear extra large hoops is that they will keep you from looking like everyone else and will go well in combination with smaller hoops for a unique and different look.
