Hoops are the earrings for which there is the oldest archaeological evidence. Sumerian women wore them as early as 2500 BC.
It's no surprise that they are still very much a big fashion item these days. They work in so many ways. Big, small, embellished or classic, round, oval, textured or not, they compliment all kinds of outfits.
And let's not forget that they are also worn by men.
This week's Oldies but Goodies Challenge from the Jewelry Artisans Community actually doesn't show you the classic hoop which is like a ring going through the ear without an extra earwire, but that doesn't mean they are less fun!
