Earrings have been worn by humans for centuries and have truly become a part of culture. They were worn because of social status, religious beliefs and to attribute healing powers. In ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, earrings were already worn by both men and women, as this was a sign of immense wealth and power.

Over the years, different cultures have left their own mark on the world of earrings. For example, the men and women of the Roman empire wore many pearls along with lavish earrings, this was how they tried to show their wealth. The people who lived during the Renaissance wore intricate designs and the earrings were often set with diamonds and emeralds. During the Victorian era, people loved earrings with an expression of romantic feelings, think flowers or hearts that were incorporated into the jewellery.
There have been many styles over the past hundreds of years, these styles changed due to society's tastes and the availability of materials. The Art Nouveau period was characterized by its organic form and floral print. The Art Deco period was known for geometric shapes and gemstones in bright colours.
