Back in the eighties, gold bamboo hoop earrings were all the rage. They were most especially popular in urban areas. Despite their name, these earrings are not actually made out of bamboo. They are made from gold but have a bamboo pattern in them that is very elegant. They came in a range of sizes and styles and it was not unusually to see some as small as a nose ring or large enough to caress the shoulders. However, as the eighties faded away so did the trend and these earrings could only be found in places like second hand stores and swap meets.
Fashion is funny, however, and we are seeing a resurgence of these earrings in the mainstream again. This time around they are even fancier than they have been before. You can still get gold bamboo hoop earrings as small or as large as you want them. However, you can also get them in elaborate styles. For example, there are some earrings that have words worked into the design.
You can even have these earring custom designed so that your name is stretches across the center of the hoop earring. This makes a special gift for that person who loves to be the center of attention because these earrings will certainly get them noticed.
In the past, gold bamboo hoop earrings were usually round. In the current fashion, you can find them in other shapes like triangle and square. Although traditionally gold, they are also available in silver and white gold. So if you do not like yellow gold but love the style of these hoop earrings, you can still get a beautiful silver pair or just go for the white gold. These hoop earrings go from day to night. It is not unusual to see women wearing them with jeans and a t-shirt. Other women make them work with their little black dresses.
The most common type of gold bamboo hoop earrings are made from 10k to 18k gold. A jewelry store may sell you better quality. If you are looking for a high quality but don’t want to pay jewelry store prices then look at buying them from online stores. Internet retailers are generally able to sell merchandise cheaper because their overhead is a lot lower than a brick and mortar store. If you have ever wanted to wear these earrings but didn’t want to seem out of date, here’s your chance. The style is back in full force for you to enjoy.
