General fashion advice when selecting earrings, whether gold, diamond, pearl or other, is to consider choices which complement the shape of your face. In general:
Factors such as colour, length and shape can also assist when co-ordinating with an outfit. For example a dainty pair of gold or diamond earrings can provide an elegant and stylish accent to simple attire.
Archaeological discoveries provide evidence that both men and women wore forms of ear adornment as far back as Biblical times.
The earliest earrings were hoops. In Egypt, gold was the preferred material, while the Greeks preferred gemstones. The first earrings were attached through piercings in the ear lobe and symbolised age, status and wealth.
In other cultures, ear jewellery was believed to keep evil spirits from entering the body through the ears, as well as have medicinal or healing properties.
Clip-on and screw back variations were developed in the 1930s as an alternative to the pierced version, and fashion trends changed to see the acceptance of wearing more than one set at a time, now commonly worn on outer ears as well as lobes.
