African hoop earrings

When it comes to hoop earrings – a cult jewel of the 1980s – don’t miss those that feature the African continent. Light and oversized, they were created by Rokus London’s creator, Marie-Paule Tano in collaboration with Cameroonian-born designer Iman Ayssi. Since 2013, Marie-Paule Tano has made a name for herself with her contemporary reinterpretations of Fulani, Akan and Tuareg jewelry.
