Guide for different types from XXS to XXL
Finally, we can distinguish various types. For example, when do you wear large or small ring earrings? We would like to answer the most frequently asked questions to help you make the right choice.
Tinny ring earrings: XS up to 15 mm (0.59 inch)
The small ring earrings are a big trend in jewelry. These models have a diameter of up to 15 millimeters (1 inch). Usually they are slightly thicker and, for example, provided with diamonds.
Of course, the size till 12 mm (0.47 inch) is also often worn by children. In that case there is more space between the earlobe and the ring. Nevertheless, there are plenty of great options for adults.
The 15 mm hoop ring is most often worn by men.
Small hoops: S from 20 – 25 mm (0.79 – 0.98 inch)
The small hoop is an ideal size for everyday wear. The dimensions are modest, but also easy to expand with hangers. You can also see that in the photo below. Usually S is also a bit thicker than the L and XL. In this way it gives narrow faces more volume and it stands out more.
Medium size hoops: M from 30 – 45 mm (1.18 – 1.77 inch)
The average hoop earring size for women is 35 mm (1.38 inch). It’s the classic design you see a lot. You can also expand this with charms and pendants. Furthermore, it’s also an easy size that fits different clothing styles.
Large hoop earrings: L from 50 – 75 mm (1.97 – 2.95 inch)
The L design is often thin, but striking. In all its simplicity, it draws attention to the wearer’s face. The size varies from 50mm to 75mm. In addition, this model also fits well with a free neck in combination with, for example, a shirt. Furthermore, the special thing about this design is that it also gives the wearer extra spice.
XXL Loops: 80 – 140 mm (3.15 – 5.51 inch)
Finally, we have the XL and XXL loops for people who like the bigger the better. For example, the 80 mm is the classic XL Hoop. Forget the other earrings and jewelry in this case. The best thing is when the attention is fully focused on these earrings.
Keep in mind that this circumference is mainly for a casual look and is less suitable for a meeting or business occasion. As you can see in the photo, for this one it is also beautiful in combination with bare shoulders.
