Latinas, jewelry and creoles are forever intertwined. Whether it’s Lupe Velez wearing a pair of hoops with a fierce look in the days of old Hollywood or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defiantly wearing hoops to her congressional swearing-in ceremony, the earrings were a way for Latinas to feel elegant, daring and connected to their culture. In an age when society wants everyone to be laid back, laid back, and “mainstream,” large hoops serve as an act of defiance for Latinxes who don’t want to look submissive.
This loyalty means that not only do we have a solid collection of beautiful hoops, but that we are constantly on the lookout for more. A bonus is when these hoops are made by us, for us so we wanted to create a great guide to buying the coolest hoop earrings, all from Latinx jewelry brands.
