Vintage Antique Earrings
Earrings are some of the oldest pieces of jewelry known to humankind. They were en vogue when Moses went up Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments. During the 1500s, they were worn by some men as well as women. Sailors have famously been associated with the practice of wearing at least one earring. Maritime lore suggests that a gold earring was a prepayment on a proper burial if the wearer was unable to make such arrangements himself. Changing societal norms ascribed the wear of earrings as either being a daring or a highly fashionable practice.
