Non-Conformist Hoops – Medium

Gold vermeil



Inspired by ergonomics, the asymmetry of Eileen Grey’s Non-Conformist Armchair offered a humorous observation on the human condition, namely, that most people sit leaning to one side. Inspired by this reimagination of an everyday object is our considered take on a classic hoop. In a ridged texture, these gradient, huggie earrings are subtly larger at the front, emphasising the part of the object closest to the human eye when viewed face on.

The Non-Conformist hoops are thoughtfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver 925 or 18k gold vermeil. 6mm thick at their widest point, these gradient earrings measure 20mm from their outer and 9mm at their inner diameters. Each weighs 8.5g. Please note that we are unable to accept any returns on earrings due to hygiene reasons.

All of the materials that we use in our jewellery are ethically and sustainably sourced using Fair Mined certified gold and predominantly recycled silver. 
The Non-Conformist hoops are cast and assembled in Thailand by a community of artisans from our partner factory, Boma. The gold vermeil option is finished in the UK by our plating specialist, D&M. Read more about the story behind our pieces and their makers here.
