A creole earring is a hoop earring that is elongated and is not uniform in its thickness, most often with hinged saddle-back closures (sometimes called latch backs or push-fit closures). Creole earrings can often be oval in shape but you also see round and square creole earrings.

Originally made in gold, these are now made in any metal and two-tone designs also work well. Many creole earrings have engraved patterns in the metal.

Historically they were worn and made popular by ladies and men of African and Caribbean descent and pirates wore them as a secure and handy way to carry their wealth should they need it.

We have rounded up some of our favorite creole earrings below.

To Sum Up …

Creole earrings go with both casual and smart outfits and are hugely versatile. Perfect for wearing with long or short hair, you can chose a more boho-style pair for summer fun or a stone-studded or highly-polished pair of creoles for more formal occasions.

The latch-back fittings on most of these earrings mean that this style of earring is easy to insert and remove. The tapered shape adds a lovely dimension to them.

If you don’t already own a pair of creoles we’d encourage you to try. A silver pair of these earrings are inexpensive (even a gold pair can be) and are a worthy contender for a place in everyone’s jewelry collection.
