Connect, Remember, Be Reminded - You Are Loved
Earrings appear to date back as far back as 3000-2500 BC! They originated in Asia and were created in 2 styles: a simple hoop earring and a pendant style earring. The pendant earrings were more elaborate than the hoops.
Over the years, earrings have been worn by both men and women. They have been used to identify the wealthy and those considered to be of the “higher” class. In some ancient societies, however, earrings identified the wearer as a slave (ancient Rome) or as a prostitute (ancient Greece).
Nowadays, earrings are worn by everyone! There are no stigmas attached to wearing earrings. Isn’t that great? We can wear 1 earring, 2 earrings or a gazillion earrings! Most especially, we have the freedom to choose the size, type and style that best suits our unique personality.
Earring styles are as varied as the individuals who wear them. There are minimalist earrings and Bohemian earrings. There are styles made famous in different eras such as Renaissance, Victorian, Edwardian, Roaring 20’s, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. There are hoops, drops, earbobs, studs, baubles, ear ornaments, bijoux and gewgaws.
What earrings throughout time all have in common, though, is that they are all beautiful and are all valued by someone!
