What are huggie earrings?

Huggie hoop earrings are a jewellery staple, that can be worn for any occasion, day or night. They are small or mini hoops typically wider and thicker than traditional hoop earrings that snugly encircle your earlobes, helix or concha. They make great second or third-piercing earrings and look super stylish along with studs, danglers and threader earrings. 

When you want more of these in your own huggie hoop earrings collection, we suggest you buy demi-fine versions in gold-plated sterling silver.

The gold-plated huggie earring advantage

Gold-plated huggies come in a variety of styles and are a godsend for women who love more. Huggie hoop earrings are comfortable to wear. They won’t get in the way while you go about your day. They’re worn as a single, in pairs, or in multiple ear piercings. You can go for a classic look as a pair, or mix N match your huggies with studs, danglers, large hoops or cuffs for an upbeat look.

Buying tips for gold-plated huggies

The charm of designer gold-plated huggies lies in their affordability with the allure and luxurious look of gold earrings. Premium-quality gold-plated earrings use sterling silver as the base metal, plated with 14K, 18K or 22K gold. The thicker the plating, the longer it will last.

Gold-plated earrings come in shades of yellow, white, or rose gold, each colour garantees the glamour and lustre that a touch of gold brings to any piece of jewellery. And if you are a fan of different hues, you can also choose a huggie in charming rose gold or sterling silver huggie hoop earrings with rhodium plating for a white gold finish or in the traditional yellow gold plating.

Lower karat gold (14K/10K) plating, though not as shiny as 22K gold, will be more durable and last longer. If you are looking for hypoallergic earrings, we recommend sterling silver as the base metal for gold-plated hoop earrings as these do not have nickel which can irritate your skin.

Tips to take care of gold-plated huggie hoop earrings

Gold-plated huggies are lovely, delicate pieces of jewellery for your ears. But they should be worn and stored with care to keep them looking their best. To keep your earrings in good condition, follow these simple guidelines.

♥ Store huggie hoop earrings in a jewellery bag or a box when you’re not wearing them. This will protect them from scratches and damage.
♥ Clean gold-plated silver jewellery using a soft cloth.
♥ Avoid wearing huggies while swimming, showering, or at the gym. Moisture can cause the gold plating to wear away over time, leading to discolouration, tarnishing of silver and damage. If this happens, you can have it checked at a trusted jewellery house, as most plain designs can be re-plated.

Gold-plated huggie earrings are for women who love experimenting with new styles and earring fashions. These beautiful accessories add the perfect finishing touch to your jewellery collection. Whether you’re looking for gifts for someone special or a treat for yourself, our selection from the finest brands and design houses have some super exciting styles you would love to add to your shopping bag.
