GET TO KNOW YOUR EARRING STYLES
Hearing so many different ways to describe earrings can be confusing. Get to know some popular designs from your huggie earrings to your studs and ear crawlers with this handy guide to earring styles!
Hoops is the general term given to any earring that resembles a circular hoop, but let’s break this down a little further;
- Huggies - A huggie earring is simply a hoop that wraps around and hugs the ear lobe. They’re usually small in size and have a clasp that clips under the back of the loop for a seamless finish.

- Sleepers - Sleeper earrings are originally a lightweight, thin hoop that are comfortable enough to sleep in, hence the name! However, sleeper hoops have evolved and their sleek design is now available in much larger styles.
Plain Sleeper Hoops 22mm - €80
- Classic Hoop - The classic hoop generally consists of a hoop of any size and width and a hinged clasp. They can come in an array of designs from plain, to twist hoops, patterned, like diamond cut hoops or even with some bling!

Studs or stud earrings is the most commonly used term and the most basic earring style. They usually have a cute design at the front of a stem that sits against your earlobe. The stem feeds through the ear and is fastened at the back to give the illusion that the earring is floating.

Crawlers or Climbers
