Jewellery trends come and go, and are often divisive. But the pervasive gold hoop seems to unite women from every camp.

Whether you're a sucker for the 14karat offerings, or devout to cheap and cheerful high street multipacks that tarnish in time, there's something about the simplicity of a gold hoop in its many variants that constantly feels fresh.

Larger-than-life hoops swung from the earlobes of disco dancers in the 1970s, were pervasive during the hip hop era of the '90/'00s, and never appeared to retire anytime in between.

The oldest gold hoop-style earrings that archeologists have discovered once belonged to Sumerian women who lived in 2500 BC - and some 4,500 years later, we still haven't strayed far from the trend.

For 2018, Louis Vuitton, Marni, and JW Anderson gave the classic the fresh take it was longing for. Indeed, Anderson's bullring-style variant wound its way on to wish lists everywhere, garnering cult-like status at the same rapid speed of his Pierce bags.
