Eternally fashionable with endless ways to style, there are few jewellery box staples like gold hoop earrings.

Whatever age you are, whatever your personal style, and whatever the occasion, there's a pair of gold hoop earrings waiting to give your outfit its final touch.

We've picked out five of our favourite pairs of gold hoop earrings, all of which can be styled in different ways, to revive your jewellery collection and transform your look.

Style 1: Classic and feminine

Anne Klein Jewellery Ladies' Gold Plated Hoop Earrings

The Anne Klein brand is renowned for taking classic pieces and updating them for the modern woman without losing what made the original so great in the first place. The Anne Klein gold-plated hoop earrings (RRP £30) are a standout example.

The hoops are chunky yet petite, offering understated sparkle with a tasteful amount of dazzle. These earrings will shine paired with a little black dress, black heels, and a gold accent clutch bag. Perfect for a formal occasion like a wedding.

Style 2: Long live punk

Gold hoop earrings might be most closely associated with boho-chic and conservative styles, neither of which are particularly 'loud'. But there are modern pieces that bring the potential boldness of gold to an even bolder audience, with punk-inspired pieces set to make waves in 2018.

The Calvin Klein Airy two-tone earrings (RRP £69) are reminiscent of iconic punk safety pin 'earrings' and will add edge to your outfit. The two-tone colouring introduces an extra element of outrageousness (without going over the top), and will look great worn with dark eye make-up, back-combed hair, and a fuss-free attitude.

Style 3: Day to night

Thomas Sabo Jewellery Ladies' Sterling Silver Glam & Soul Hoop Earrings

Ladies' Thomas Sabo sterling silver Glam & Soul hoop earrings (£79)

Small gold hoops are a great choice for an understated look, but for those hoping to add some sparkle, hoops with small gemstones will work a treat.

The Thomas Sabo Glam & Soul earrings (RRP £79) capture this style perfectly. Plated in 18ct gold, the 1cm earrings are small enough to match a smart-casual outfit, but the gemstone means they can easily transition your outfit from office to dancefloor, should you be persuaded out for some unplanned after-work drinks.

Style 4: Young and fun

Juicy Couture Jewellery Ladies' PVD Gold plated Iconic Juicy Rainbow Heart Hoop Earrings

Ladies' Juicy Couture PVD gold-plated Iconic Juicy hoop earrings (RRP £60, our price £39)

You're unique, so your earrings should be too. Mix things up with unusual shapes in place of the classic circular hoop, and opt for a multi-coloured style for a pop of youthful energy at any age.

Juicy Couture is an expert at pushing the fashion boundaries to create pieces that are undeniably exciting albeit too unconventional for some tastes. The Iconic Juicy Rainbow earrings (RRP £60, our price £39) are a perfect example of this, with multi-coloured gemstones framed by yellow gold, set in a cute heart shape to show off your personality.

Style 5: Rose gold forever

 Karen Millen Jewellery Ladies' Crystal Sprinkle Large Hoop Earrings

Ladies' Karen Millen crystal sprinkle large hoop earrings (RRP £65)

Fashion lovers have a new favourite shade on their style agenda: rose gold. Found across modern watches, rings, headpieces, and necklaces, earrings haven't escaped the rose gold craze either... and we're certainly pleased about that.

If yellow gold isn't really your cup of tea, go subtle with a coppery set of gold hoops instead. Karen Millen Crystal Sprinkle hoop earrings (RRP £65) are a sophisticated pair, with a smattering of crystals embedded into the hoop, which makes them ideal for black tie events. Match with a clingy dress and killer heels to really stop the show.

Every woman needs a pair of gold hoop earrings. Find your perfect pair by browsing the Watch Shop earring range.
