Did you realize that earrings haven’t always been a predominantly female item of jewelry?
Men have been wearing earrings longer than ladies
Both men and women have worn earrings for personal adornment, but are more traditionally worn by men. Ear piercings are the oldest form of body modification, which has been backed up by written and physical evidence gathered from all over the world. Carved images have been uncovered in Persia, that show a Persian soldier wearing an earring.
No physical earrings were found in Tutankhamen’s tomb, but it was found that his ear lobes has been perforated, which suggests the young Pharaoh wore earrings.
It wasn’t nobility who wore earrings in Ancient Rome. It was the slaves. While in Ancient Greece ‘ladies of the night’ were characterized by the wearing of earrings.
Over the years, and throughout history, earrings have been in and out of fashion. Both for men and women, and not necessarily at the same time. In the 13th century it would have been considered sacrilegious, as the Catholic Church forbade such an adornment. But even back then there were people who thought nothing of flouting the rules. And some who even made a point of doing so. During that period in history it was thieves, pirates, and lower classes who wore earrings.
Earrings came back into fashion in the late 1500s, for men at that time. Remember listening to stories of pirates as a child. Didn’t the pirate always have an earring? It was common practise for sailors to pierce their ears when they had crossed the Equator or sailed around the world. It may also have been done to ensure there was something to pay for a proper burial, should they be drowned at sea.
The ear an earring was worn in also had some significance. An earring was worn in the right ear by the only boy in a family. If you were the son of a single mother whose husband had been killed you would wear an earring in the left ear.
Earrings have played a big part in personal adornment, and it’s really not too different today. While we don’t have any specific customs that we follow, earrings continue to be popular ways to show individuality.
