Need suggestions on the size of hoops

Should a plain gold 2 inches hoops be thicker 1/4 width or thinner 1/8 width. Which looks better. Thanks.

I guess it mostly depends on your personal preference, but I would choose the 1/8" width. Smile

I would go with the smaller width as well. I'd be afraid the wider width would be too heavy...or that it would look as though it isn't actually gold.

I love this size hoop and usually go for the thinner version myself...so another vote for the 1/8"" width lol!

I think 2""+ hoops generally look better in a thinner width.

I guess it depends on the look you want ... thinner hoops are saxier, and wider hoops are monied.

Sexier or monied. Hard to choose.

Sexy or monied...I don't know? {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}I just tend to think that larger hoops that are wide usually are pretty heavy, and pull down on the earlobe, and that's not a good look. Or else they need to be hollow and that doesn't seem very monied. Wink

Either way, I love hoops. They're my favorite style earring.

Hmmmm, I have a couple of pair of 2" oval hoops that are thicker in width and I like 'em. Of course they're hollow.
