I’ve had an obsession with hoops ever since I saw the iconic picture of Sade looking incredibly cool in a pair. If you’re like me, you probably own them in gold and silver, but you’re always casually looking for more.
Right now, there’s a crop of especially pretty hoop earrings on the market. Either they’re colorful, which feels fun for summer, or they’re textured in a cool, unusual way. Personally, I’m really into Rachel Comey’s Lucite marbled pair — they feel cool yet still professional. But here are 14 other pairs that might suit your fancy. True, it can be hard to step away from the Sade model, but you have to live a little, right?

They’re slightly clear with a hint of pink — the perfect way to add an modern update to a prairie dress.
It happens all the time: I ask someone where she got her earrings, thinking they’re wildly expensive, and it turns out they’re from Dinosaur Designers and cost under $200. The tortoiseshell finish here is so pretty and unique.
