Silver Beaded Hoop Earrings To Match Your Beaded Bracelets and Necklaces

Tags: , , , ,


Sterling Silver beaded hoop earrings are a popular type of silver hoop earring with the young crowd. Ever since the concept of beads on bracelets introduced by Pandora took hold, there has been a big interest on the part of jewelry shoppers in the use of beads in other types of jewelry. The sterling silver beads that you see on bracelets are basically donuts of silver that are threaded to fit on the particular width of sterling silver bracelets that most manufacturers make to accommodate the beads. Sterling silver beads are a fairly new concept that began recently driving the trend towards beaded bracelets and necklaces in silver. There are also silver right hand rings that incorporate a similar concept.

This idea translates well for sterling silver hoop earrings because basically a hoop earring is a standard width hoop that can be strung with an assortment of beads. There are all types of beads that can go on a sterling silver hoop earring. Some of them include acrylic beads, glass beads, faceted crystal beads, turquoise beads, lampworked beads and quartz beads. Faceted beads are some of the nicest if you want to attract attention by having a swinging hoop on your ear. These clearer glass beads catch the light and reflect it at eye level while the earrings dance  on your ear.

Not only can the hoops be strung with beads that have  drill holes but can also be strung with silver posts with a small jump ring on the end that connects to larger  jump rings with hanging beads. This is essentially a dangle earring created from many sterling Silver hoops and smaller jump rings that are great for when you want an earring that swings and sways as you move. Instead of the beads being fixed on a hoop, they swing from a post and create an entirely different look. Some women call them shoulder dusters because they can hang long from the ear till they are almost touching the shoulder. I would still call these hoop earrings because ultimately they start out from a hoop and become a dangle earring.
