- Gold, silver and bronze earrings were already known in the Minoan civilization (3000 - 1200 BC). They were worn as body decorations. They may even be older, as older mummies have been found with pierced ears.
- In the Middle Ages, women often wore jewellery in their hair, and their hair came below the ears. So earrings were superfluous at that time.
- Popularity increased In the 16th century - among men, too. William Shakespeare and Francis Drake, among others, often wore earrings. Sailors also wore earrings symbolically.
- By the 60s, more and more women had started piercing their ears. This had not been done for some time. Around this time, earrings also acquired additional meanings: as a sign of non-conformism in hippies, as a tribute to their roots for black people, or as an expression of sexual orientation in men.
