History of Hoop Earrings
Earring with a circular design is known as hoop earrings. Hoops are usually metal and include a wire clasp through an ear-piercing. The traditional hoop is round, but newer forms include oval, square, and diamond shapes.
Hoops were first worn in Africa during the 4th century, specifically in Nubia. Hoop earrings were also popular in ancient Egypt when both men and women wore them.
Hoop earrings come in various forms, including ultra-slender or thick, tube-like, and gemstone-encrusted. All of these are available in multiple sizes, ranging from small to extra-large hoops that go all the way to the shoulders.
While most hoop earrings are circular, they can also be triangles, squares, or ovals and come in various sizes, from tiny to enormous. Smaller hoops provide a more subtle style, but larger hoops have a more striking effect.
Types of Hoop Earrings
Earring with a thin wire for going through the ear is generally thicker than ear piercings. This thin ear wire has one hinged end, and the other catches on or fits into the broader end of the earring. The ear wire usually has a slight hump, allowing the lower portion of the earring to drop more freely.
Huggies, also known as huggie hoop earrings, are huggers because they're made to embrace your earlobes. The huggie hoops are very petite, with thicker overall widths and lever-back clasps that curve gently to secure the earrings.
Wire Loop Earring
These earrings are among the most basic and traditional types of jewelry. The circular earring is made from a single wire with a loop formed at one end and a hook shape formed at the other end. The looped end catches on the hooked end, passing through the piercing. A round wire with the loop end already fashioned can create this style.

This sort of jewelry is most commonly seen in non-ear piercings, while they can also be helpful for small upper-cartilage piercings or an earring that you wish to wear for a long time and never change or remove.

Wire closures are standard on hoops, while pushbacks are common on C hoops. C hoop earrings are available in a variety of styles and sizes.
