The Rich History of Earrings
Did you know people have been worn jewelry pieces in their ears as far back as nine thousand years ago? Perhaps no other piece of jewelry has had such a varied level of significance. At certain periods of time, only the very wealthy were allowed to wear them and at other points in time the wealthy thought these beautiful earpieces were beneath them! In Ancient Greece, there were times when only captured slaves wore these and other times when the wealthy wore them as status symbols. Thankfully, today anyone can wear these, and they can be a wonderful and beautiful accessory.
Types to Consider
Earrings can complement the shape of the face as well as hair color. For example, long styles make the face and the neck appear longer. That makes them perfect for women with rounder faces or shorter necks. The shape of the piece can also alter how the face is perceived. For example, someone with angular features can appear to have softer features by wearing round or oval shapes. On the other hand, someone with too soft of features can sharpen them up with angular, geometric shapes. Small face? Try to pick a larger piece. Long face? Wear posts and smaller designs. Dark hair is complemented by just about any kind of gemstone or metal color while blonde hair should be accessorized with both light gems and light metal.
