Hoop earrings are a staple in many women’s closet, but do you know it’s history? Hoop earrings originated in Africa, dating back to Nubia, a civilization that existed in the fourth century in what is modern day Sudan. In ancient Egypt, both men and women wore hoop earrings, even being buried with it as it was thought to enhance beauty and sexuality. Queens and Pharaohs like Nefertiti, Hatshepsut, Tutankhamun and Cleopatra adorned themselves with gold hoops. The Lerato is a contemporary take on a quintessential African essential.
