Latinas, jewelry, and hoops are forever intertwined. Whether it’s Lupe Velez wearing a pair of hoops with a fierce stare in the days of Old Hollywood or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defiantly wearing hoops to her Congressional swearing-in ceremony, hoop earrings have been a way for Latinas to feel stylish, bold, and connected with their culture. In a time when society wants everyone to be laid-back, casual, and “mainstream,” big hoops serve as an act of defiance for Latinxs who don’t want to look subdued.
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 put together a great shoppable guide to the coolest hoop earrings, all from Latinx jewelry brands.

Adrienne Houghton’s jewelry line, XIXI, is brimming with must-have baubles. The Engelique Earring, which comes in different stones (as well as in silver metal), but pictured here in black, combines an old-school rope chain hoop with a glam emerald-cut stone.
