Not long after the Egyptians began using what is known as earplugs. These are not the same type of earplugs we are familiar with today. They used earplugs in conjunction with piercing of the ear lobe. It is said King Tutankhamen had such a piercing in his ear.
Poverty dominated the Dark Ages to the point jewelry making was not made. The designs were secured and were used after the Dark Ages were over. Early Roman women used earrings to display their wealthy position. Precious stones such as emeralds, sapphires and aquamarines were used the most.
The changing of hairstyles influenced the designer of jewelry. There are times in history where earrings were not worn at all. The elaborate headdresses worn in the Middle Ages were not worn with earrings. The ears could not be seen. The bonnets of the 1800th century made it difficult to wear earrings. Also at that same time women wore their hair in a knot at the back of their head. Their ears not visible again.
When hairstyles started getting shorter or was worn swept up and away from the face. Designers were again making earrings. Today earring are sometime worn and sometimes not worn. It makes very little difference how today’s women wear their hair. We keep the earring designer very busy.
