TYPES OF EARRINGS

TYPES OF EARRINGS

Earrings represent style, flair, and the way a person sees herself. This jewelry is available in two basic types, pierced and clip-on, and from there they branch out into a wide variety of shapes and styles.

Both men and women of any age can wear earrings. They are often used to signify special events such as holidays or parties, and fine jeweled pieces are popular gift ideas for birthdays, graduations and weddings. Earrings are thought to have originated in Asia and the Middle East. Both hoop and pendant types have been found that date back to about 2000 BC. They became popular in 17th century Europe as styles changed and new ideas were adopted.

By the middle of the 20th century, earrings of all shapes and sizes were more popular than ever, though there was a clear distinction between more conservative types worn during the day, and the more ostentatious ones worn in the evenings. While their popularity has risen and fallen over the years, they have always been a part of fashion.
