WHAT GOES AROUND comes around, as the adage goes. But lately, hoops just keep circling round. They have proven they are here to stay, and over the past five to ten years, hoops have continued to evolve into different interpretations. At the Clooney Foundation For Justice Inaugural Albie Awards, Julianna Margulies wore a pair of Nikos Koulis double hoops in enamel, gold and diamonds (pictured above; click on the image for a closer look at the hoops), and they complemented her halter neckline flowing gown with their easy glam — a feeling in jewelry that so many of us are looking for today.

Today’s hoops are available in multiple styles, from straightforward yellow gold to twisted, textured and braided. There are gemstone and diamond studded styles, gypsy looks, front-facing hoops with a mix of fancy cuts, and double and triple hoops that often can come apart to transform into different lengths and looks.

Koulis’ hoops provide just the right amount of elegance and cool girl vibe to be worn for numerous circumstances and occasions. The black enamel is a staple that allows the diamond part of the hoop to pop. It’s the perfect earring for those whose prefer the ease of basic black in their fashion choices.

Many designers are creating vibrantly colored hoops with enamel that conjure up images of the MOD fashion of the ‘60s a la Twiggy; the larger, more basic metal hoops Natalie Wood wore in film and real life during the same era; or the chunkier huggies and sculptural hoops of the power career woman of the ’80s and ’90s (think Robert Lee Morris and Donna Karan). But Koulis, whose jewelry has shown up on the red carpet on A-listers at numerous events, keeps it simple, versatile and wearable — just look at Margulies and you get the picture.

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
