Earrings have been around for many thousands of years. Originally from ancient Asia, they were primarily worn by men. In Egypt those who originally wore earrings was to show wealth and high class. However, in ancient Rome it was quite the opposite where they were only worn by slaves and ancient Greece by prostitutes.
In the 13th century, the Catholic Church banned the piercing of ears as they believed people should not alter the body created in the image of God. This caused earrings to become popular amongst the lower class,
pirates and thieves.
It wasn’t until after the renaissance people started moving away from the strict rules of the Catholic Church. Earrings then slowly became more popular on men and then moving more strongly on women from the 1950s, surged in the 70s and have remained a fashion staple since. Different styles of earrings on trend have moved around the decades, but modern diamond stud earrings made their appearance in the 19th century – and have had staying power.
If you’re wondering how trendy they are, fashion-setter Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, was recently spotted wearing diamond stud earrings.
