What You Should Know: Hoops are created from solid 14k gold wire.

The first evidence of hoop earrings were worn by Sumerian women around 2500 BC. These particular hoops were crescent shaped and molded out of gold or bronze. The same materials were used 1500 years later by the Aegean civilizations, though these hoops were more reminiscent of a tapered boat shape. In ancient Egypt, thick hoops were worn by all genders and required a commitment of stretching your ears. The Greeks and Romans more commonly wore lighter and thinner hoops, wrapped out of wire and often decorated with clusters of beads implicative of floral or animal like shapes. Vintage and modern hoop are worn by people all over the world, of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds. It has become a universal adornment and because of this we have always had a certain reverence for hoops. The importance to so many cultures, carried in a simple circle.
