An earring is a type of jewelry that is attached to the ear through a piercing in the earlobe or another part of the ear. Earrings can be made of different materials such as a metal, stone, wood, bone, bead, and other materials available.
One of the oldest known body modifications is ear piercing. Earrings made from metals were used during ancient times. Earrings made of gold, silver, and bronze were popular during the Minoan Civilization (2000 to 1600 BCE), and these are evident on the frescoes in Santorini, Greece.
In Western Europe in the 1590s, earrings became popular amongst English courtiers and gentlemen during the English Renaissance. Sailors also wore earrings to sign that they’ve already circumnavigated the world or had already crossed the equator.
Types of Diamond Earrings
Earrings, just like any other jewelry, can be encrusted with gemstones. Diamonds, in particular, make the earrings extra elegant and classy. Below are the most common types of diamond earrings.
- Stud – Diamond stud earrings are simple earrings with a single diamond set on the end of a metal bar while the other end goes through the piercing.
- Hoop – Hoop earrings are circular earrings that have a similar look to a ring. Diamond hoop earrings are typically made of metals that are encrusted with tiny diamonds on the outer hoop.
- Dangle – Dangle earrings are earrings that are designed to be suspended from the earlobes. These earrings’ design can vary, and diamond dangle earrings are usually set on a simple “thread” of metal.
- Huggie – Huggie earrings are similar to hoop earrings but are smaller, and it looks like it “hugs” the earlobe. Diamond huggie earrings are typically channel set on the metal.
