Earrings have been found on Egyptian mummies, some had special compartments to store perfume and were used to ward off evil spirits.
In Rome a law was passed to limit the amount of gold that could be buried along with someone so sterling silver earrings became popular as there was no limit to the amount you could add to the shroud.
Earrings became less popular in the mid 1800's as hairstyles were worn loose covering a ladies ears. Sleepers were invented during this time to be worn at night to prevent the holes closing up.
As trends in hair styles changed so did the design of earrings, ladies would wear gem stones such as turquoise and agate to add accessories to their dresses. These days sterling silver earrings can be both modern and vintage inspired and come in a variety of lovely colours
