Huggie Earrings

Huggie earrings are also known affectionately as "huggers" because they almost give your ear a hug, like these Gold-Plated Simulated Square Diamond Earrings. They tend to be thicker and wider than the average hoop earring but have been carefully designed to provide an easy method of closing the earring with a lever back. This means you can fit your earrings without any fuss or frustration. Say goodbye to losing that fiddly butterfly fitting for your earring or losing your butterfly backs when brushing your hair or sleeping.

Huggies for Children

Children with pierced ears will find them easy to wear, fit and remove. There are some lovely designs available for children, so they can also have fun choosing and wearing their own huggie earrings.

Different Finishes

This is where you can really enjoy yourself as you look through the wonderful new designs that are available in the comfortable new huggie style. You’ll find a range of finishes, such as precious gold, silver, rose gold and gold or silver plate. You can be sure to find something that you like.

When choosing the finish of your earrings, try silver-toned earrings to complement cooler-colored clothing and cooler complexions. Gold or rose gold finishes look nice with clothing in the warm color range and warmer skin tones. Of course, this is only a suggestion as many people have their own preference when wearing gold or silver. Whichever finish you prefer, you will find there is a great range of huggie designs for you.


Jewelry designers have been coming up with some stunning new huggie designs to suit a variety of styles and tastes. These designs range from the basic hoop shape, which comfortably hugs the earlobes, to more elaborately designed styles suitable for weddings, parties and prom nights! The simple, classic design has always been a popular choice to wear to work or the office.

However, some of the designs on the market right now also feature semi-precious or precious stones embedded into the design of the huggie earring itself. Designs with these semi-precious stones are available in a range of colors and styles and are a wonderful way to carry a hint of color from your clothes to your jewelry. Huggie earrings featuring birthstones make for great gifts, like these Black Gold Emerald Huggie Vintage Earrings.

Another huggie design variation that is gaining popularity, especially among children, are the huggie earrings that are supplied with a range of pretty charms. These are easy to slip over the earring so you can change the look of your earrings just by adding cute little butterflies, semi-precious stones or sparkling diamanté drops. These charms give your huggie earrings a personal twist and extend the life and wearability of your earrings.

Mix and Match

One of the best features of huggie earrings is that they are easy to layer with your other earrings. If you have multiple piercings, you can choose huggie earrings to complement any other favorite earrings. Some of the designs are close-fitting to your ear, which gives you the appearance of wearing an earring cuff; just add simple studs or dangly earrings to complete the earring stack effect.

If you haven’t tried huggie earrings yet, you are missing out on an innovative new trend that makes choosing and wearing earrings simpler than ever. Designers are bringing some stunning new designs to their collections to complement the basic design of the huggie earring. Whether you are looking for a timeless classic or sparkly party earrings, there is sure to be a huggie design to suit you.
