Hoop earrings in general are considered to be a go-to choice for daily wear for women across all age groups. Simple metal hoop earrings regardless of their size are mostly worn to elevate casual or modern outfits. Hoop jhumkas are a desi version of the same and feature a round hoop earring attached to a dome-shaped jhumka below.

If you prefer earrings that have a long or heavy look to them, then hoop jhumkas make a suitable choice for you. Hoop jhumkas with Kundan or pearl work make a pretty popular yet beautiful choice to elevate the Indian outfit.

Suryakanthi jhumkas as the name suggests, have a sunlike round shape for the studs, and dome-shaped jhumkas are attached to the stud. These types of jhumkas are very common and most popular in oxidized silver jhumkas. Apart from small, and medium sizes, oversized suryakanthi jhumkas are pretty popular and make the best choice for a traditional, modern, and boho look.

Wear big-size suryakanthi jhumkas for occasional wear and opt for smaller and easy-to-carry ones for either a daily or casual look.

Also known as the string style jhumkas, Kashmiri jhumkas make a lovely and off-beat accessory that can elevate your traditional as well as modern look. The USP of these jhumkas is the multiple strings that hang from the back of the earrings. From pearls, and Kundan to silver oxidized, you can select from a variety of Kashmiri-style jhumkas.

Since these jhumkas create a layered effect, wear them as a statement accessory. Avoid a neckpiece if you can so that attention can be formed with just a piece of stunning earrings. Also, Kashmiri Jhumkas are ideal for someone with a long neck.
