Fashion Standards for Diamond Hoop Earrings
Love to wear hoop earrings? The size and style of the hoops matter because if you wear hoop earrings that are too small or too large for your face, it will give the wrong kind of statement. Follow these fashion tips for wearing hoop earrings correctly.
Pick the Proper Size and Consider your Facial Structure
While smaller hoops around 1.5 inches or so are more versatile; they should be level at the widest part of your face and extenuate your jaw line. On the other hand, large hoops that are too large don't look fashionable as they overpower your facial features. They’re also heavy, painful, and awkward to wear.
If you have an oval face shape, you're quite blessed as hoop earrings naturally go well with ovals. But the rest of us, we need to choose carefully. When selecting hoops, aim to find a pair that's longer than your jaw line but at least two inches shorter than your shoulders. Another tip is to choose earrings that are no bigger than your fist to flatter your jaw line without making it appear too large.
Round hoops are classic jewellery for everyone, but you might want to experiment on angular or triangular hoops for a new look.
Choose the Right Style for the Proper Occasion
Hoop earrings, along with fabulous art deco pendants, can be worn every day; but if you wear them to work, you need to be careful so they won't snag on things and become a safety hazard. In places where snagging is likely to happen, you can wear simple, small hoops. Simple, thin gold hoops are ideal.
Hoop earrings are also ideal jewellery to wear for a weekend party or date night. You'll want to wear a pair of larger hoops, perhaps some diamond hoop earrings for more formal occasions.
Think about your lifestyle and your wardrobe. If you wear lots of trendy clothes from designer labels, indulge in at least one pair of larger hoops or glitzy diamond hoops.
The Techniques and Standards for Choosing Diamond Hoop Earrings
Diamond hoop earrings are the epitome of fashion accessories. If you're going to splurge and buy diamond hoop earrings, you have a choice between round diamond studded hoops or simple gold hoops with a single diamond. Both feature elegant and classic styles. Just make sure that in choosing diamond hoops, pay attention to the 4 Cs: Cut, Clarity, Colour, and Carat size.
Silver and platinum are becoming the most popular metal for diamond hoops, but don't discount classic gold as it will always be in style. In fact, gold hoop earrings that are paired with fabulous art deco pendants can definitely make a statement. That combination can make you a real eye-turner, whether at work, in a formal event, or even in a casual place such as a shopping centre or a business district.
If you're going to showcase a pair of earrings like those, then let the earrings be your statement piece. Keep the rest of your jewelry and look classy and elegant, perhaps a simple chain with one of those fabulous art deco pendants.
Many say that hoop earrings are giving way to smaller, more dainty, and more contemporary designs. That couldn’t be farther from the truth! Hoop earrings are here to stay!
