Like the perfect red lipstick or a pair of great-fitting jeans, the right hoop earrings can instantly pull together an entire outfit. And while there’s certainly a case to be made for splurging on an investment-worthy pair of genuine gold or silver hoops when you’re ready, you can find some really great earrings for well under $100. Regardless of their price tags, the best hoop earrings tend to have a few things in common: they’re lightweight enough to be comfortable to wear all day long, and they’re made with high-quality, hypoallergenic materials, so you won’t have to worry about them changing color over time, irritating your skin, or turning your ears green. Nickel, in particular, is a common material used in cheaper earrings that tends to cause irritation, so it’s a good idea to stick to nickel-free earrings if you have sensitive ears.

Luckily, it’s totally possible to find hoops that meet these criteria at any price point — indeed, whether you’re shopping for classic gold hoops or diamond-studded huggies, the sheer amount of options out there can quickly feel overwhelming. To help narrow things down, stick with the 15 pairs of hoop earrings in this edit, all of which are conveniently available on Amazon for less than $100.

To see the best hoop earrings to buy this season, just keep scrolling.

A wildly popular pick on Amazon with over 9,000 five-star ratings and 2,500+ five-star reviews, they're made of genuine sterling silver plated in 14-karat gold.
