Silver keeps its position on a par with gold. In addition to traditional jewelry models, trends include jewelry of more sculptural volumetric shapes, such as Gucci silver Hoops Bamboo using the original shape of bamboo sticks.
Silver hoop earrings are practical and absolutely unpretentious jewelry made of metal in cold tones, suitable both for everyday life and for special occasions.
What to choose: Laconic or large earrings? That’s the question.
We still remember Jennifer Lopez’s music videos from the early 2000s, when she wore large hoops. The singer is a real fan of this style of earrings. Since this time, fashion brands return to the period of the early 2000s in their designs. So it is logical that eye-catching hoops also regain their status as a must-have. It is worth mentioning that not only huge hoops but also hoops of smaller size are presented in the collections of different brands, from Tiffany & Co. to more democratic brands.
This season, look out for:
Large silver hoops, as in the collections of Fraboso, Gucci, and TOUS, catch the eye at once. These impressive models complete your look and are always trendy.
In addition to the trend for multiple piercings, the trend of wearing a pair of thicker, medium-sized hoops in each ear is also hot. Take note of silver hoops by Thomas Sabo, Jil Sander, Laura Lombardi and Tom Wood. Such universal jewelry looks more laconic than multiple piercings, but no less stylish. If you wear a couple of medium-sized earrings in each ear, you will strike the most undeniable trend of the season.
Small hoops in silver are a favorite piece of jewelry for those who like piercings. Among the favorites are earrings of Swedish brand All Blues. They look like little bagels.
If you prefer thin hoops, you should turn your eyes to the jewelry models of Fraboso, Thomas Sabo and Gucci made of textured silver. You can play with the shape, such as in thin earrings or hoops with a textured spiral from the brand P D Paola.
How to choose silver earrings to match your skin tone
To make this cold metal even more advantageous to your appearance, focus on the tone of your skin. Silver earrings are best suited for owners of pinkish-beige, light olive, ivory, and porcelain skin tone. The shine of the jewelry metal should ideally be matte. This will especially emphasize the aristocracy of the appearance. If the skin is darker or very dark colored, the silver, on the contrary, should sparkle with its bluish coolness.
Silver is not always what it seems
Silver hoops are not necessarily made of pure silver. Various base metal alloys, such as brass or copper, are also used and then plated with sterling silver.
The advantages of sterling alloy are no less than those of gold. It is characterized by durability, resistance to damage, resistance to oxidation for a long time, it is affordable and does not cause irritation on the skin. Unfortunately, there are also disadvantages: tarnishing, dullness, stains or even a yellow tarnish.
Rhodium-plating can help avoid these problems by coating jewelry pieces with a thin layer of rhodium. Rhodium is the brightest metal in the platinum group. Rhodium plating makes it possible to increase resistance to corrosion and thereby strengthen the wear resistance, durability and aesthetic appeal of the jewelry.
