What are Huggie Earrings and why YOU will love them?


Here's a jewelry riddle for the day.....What do you get when you take one part hoop, one part drop, and one part stud?  Answer: Huggie Earrings, of course! 

But do you ever wonder why they are called Huggie Earrings? Well, wonder no more. Huggie Earrings take their name from their design and date back thousands of years to ancient Sumerian civilization. Seen as a status symbol, these small hoop earrings have been on trend and in style for centuries.

So what makes Huggie Earrings so special?  Basically, it comes down to its size, fit, width, and hinging mechanism. Huggies are typically wider than hoops and fit snuggly or "hug" the earlobe. And a hinged component at the base allows for ease in adding them to your ear party!

There are multiple ways you can wear your huggie earrings...as a single pair for an everyday, classic look or stacked with your hoops, studs, and ear cuffs - all the way up your ear lobe for a trendier look that will get attention and stand out.

We like to think of Huggie Earrings as the perfect mix and match accessory and a must for your "Jewelry Wardrobe".

Our Wide Huggies have the bold gold look that we love from the 1970's and off center princess cut stones that help you stand out and be seen.

Our Caged Huggie Earrings are an eye-catching and designed to make the gemstones really pop. Resembling a ferris wheel, these huggie earrings add some playfulness to your style.
