LUXE TO LESS

The Dominion Post - Your Weekend (Dominion Post) - - Fashion & Beauty -

A pair of big gold hoop ear­rings is a fast track to el­e­vat­ing any out­fit, from suits to evening­wear to lazy Sun­day en­sem­bles.

Style-wise, look for a thick, tubu­lar shape with a bit of sub­stance, and a cir­cum­fer­ence large enough to make a state­ment – but not so big you could hula hoop in­side them.

Mead­owlark’s luxe Taboo hoops were in­spired by the classic ear­rings worn by singer Sade in the 80s, and as they are hol­low they’re much lighter than you’d think, mak­ing them easy to wear.

Across time and species, they’re a classic: 4500-year-old gold hoops are among the old­est ear­rings ever dis­cov­ered and, in 1500BC Egypt, even cats (con­sid­ered sa­cred) were adorned with gold hoop ear­rings.
