Hoop Earring Size Chart

As one of the most recognizable types of earrings available today, hoops are widely considered to be a staple in every jewelry lover’s jewelry box. These versatile earrings are fun and fresh yet sophisticated and classic, making them the perfect earring to transition from day to night, casual to dressy. And while hoop earrings are available in various materials and colors, size is the biggest challenge when shopping for the right pair of hoops. Anticipating size can be especially challenging when shopping for hoop earrings online. To help you find what you’re looking for, we created this handy hoop earring size chart that contains everything you need to know about choosing a hoop size, along with an on-ear size chart to help you visualize different hoop sizes. 

Hoop Earring Sizes

Hoop earrings are available in a wide range of sizes—as small as 15mm or less to as big as 70mm or larger. The hoop size you prefer is a personal choice, whether you prefer a smaller hoop that will hug your earlobe or a larger, chunkier hoop that coincides with the latest earring trends. While 20-30mm hoops are a good size for everyday wear, smaller and larger hoops are also popular. Smaller, huggie style hoops are a practical yet chic choice while larger hoops make a major statement.
