The Earring’s Fascinating History
We all know earrings combine beauty and elegance to freshen up any look – but did you know they have a fascinating and lengthy history?
Earrings are a symbol of womanhood that traces their origin back to ancient times. Still to this day – earrings symbolise one’s personal style and allow the wearer to express their own individuality.
Earrings have been known to symbolise stability, social status and new beginnings. With a strong historical connection, earrings have been a symbol of culture and status since the dawn of time. Their ancient origins can even be traced back to the Bronze age that spanned from approximately 3300 BC to 1200 BC.
Wavering between a symbol of wealth worn by the upper classes and a symbol of depravity worn by the lower classes such as pirates – one thing has remained steadfast – earrings have always been a popular choice throughout the ages. Today’s trends indicate contemporary times are certainly no different.
At one point in history, the earring was once considered a valuable good luck charm for all who wore them. Women belonging to the tribes of central Africa adorn themselves in remarkable statement earrings as a symbol of femininity and often earrings are used as a means of tribal identification. The Ancient Egyptians were also no strangers to the ritual of donning themselves in ornate earrings for decorative purposes. Even the mummified Tutankhamun whose tomb was opened in 1923 was found with ear piercings.
Once a staple fixture worn chiefly by males – earrings slowly evolved into a principally female accessory. Men still wear earrings of course and often sport the single ear piercing significant the versatility of this wonderful piece of jewellery.
Earrings are still one of the most common jewellery types across the globe and this is certainly down to their durability, beauty and symbolism.
The Fashion Statement
When it comes to making a fashion statement – earrings are a firm favourite. From studs and pearls to hammered earrings or copper earrings – there really is every opportunity to create a fashion-forward look.
Earrings serve to accentuate your outfit choices to denote your own personal style. Ertisun’s new collection aims to achieve a balance between loud earring styles that tend to dominate a look – and subtle earrings that may not make enough of a statement.
We incorporate a simpler style that can be both stylish and interesting.
To me, earrings serve to enhance your beauty without overpowering the wearer’s features – the right earrings offer a finishing touch not provided by other accessories. We strive to evoke a sense of confidence and individuality into the wearer and avoid falling into the trap of following temporary fashion fads that may not be for everyone.
