Frequently Asked Questions about earrings

What are the most popular styles of earrings?

Studs are the most popular type of earrings. Simple, understated, and elegant, studs are versatile and suitable for a variety of occasions and looks, including casual wear, office wear, evening wear and bridal earrings. Fine jewelry foams are also gaining recognition as sustainable fashion because they have a timeless appeal that transcends trends. Other popular types of earrings include dangle earrings, hoop earrings (including the popular pearl hoop earrings), and huggers.


What is the back of a stud earring called?

Stud earrings feature pushbacks,  also known as a "butterfly back" or simply a "post". The pushback is a very small piece of metal that is pushed into the post of the earring. Fine jewelry studs sometimes come with screw-back covers to provide additional security. Some types of studs have rubber backs instead of metal backs (not common in fine jewelry).

A Brief History of Earrings

Earrings have been worn for thousands of years. Most sources indicate that they originated in ancient Asia - and depending on the region, earrings symbolized different statuses, occupations and affiliations at different points in history.


Earrings and Ancient Civilizations

The first pierced earrings appear to have originated in the Middle East, around 3000 BC. Their role was primarily to indicate the political and religious beliefs of the wearer. In places like Egypt, the elite wore earrings as a status symbol to indicate their position in society. On the polar opposite, in places like ancient Rome and Greece, earrings were worn by slaves or prostitutes. However, the wealthy classes in Rome or Greece also wore earrings with pearls and other precious stones to indicate their upper-class status in society.


During the Bronze Age in Greece, hoop earrings were very popular, mainly in the style with dangling pendants. During the Persian Empire, male soldiers used to wear only one earring - as depicted on carved walls at archaeological sites. The Persians saw jewelry as a talisman that could provide protection in battle.


In the second century AD, various colored stones were introduced as a way to decorate headphones.
