    What do earrings mean to men?

    The Minoans wore gold earrings long before our time. This civilisation was established on the Greek island of Crete between 3,000 and 1,200 BC. At that time, jewellery was a symbol of the status of the richer class. Gold earrings also appear in the Bible. While Moses was talking to God on Mount Sinai, his brother and high priest Aaron asked the Israelites to melt down the earrings of their wives, sons and daughters into a golden calf. That image was then worshipped as the God who had freed them from Egypt.

    Today, men and women of every origin, age and social class wear earrings, with or without diamonds. In some cultures, earrings still have a religious meaning. Male Muslims, for example, are not allowed to wear gold jewellery. Some Jewish scholars see gold as a symbol of luxury, which leads to destruction.

    With men, more importance is attached to the side in which he wears an earring. Whether a man's earring is worn on the left or the right side would be a symbol of his orientation. If men wear their earrings on the right, this would indicate that they are homosexual. If they are being worn on the left, it would indicate heterosexuality. However, this theory is not confirmed and there may be regional differences.

    Which earrings can I wear as a man?

    Men often choose ear studs in a rather sober colour. Yet you can also follow jewellery trends as a man. You can also opt for a statement earring in the form of a short pendant with a striking design. Moreover, the trend of asymmetric short earrings is very popular with men. You wear a subtle ear stud in one ear and a striking short earring with a pendant in the other. For men, the most common earrings are silver or black. But you can also choose yellow gold, platinum, or even red gold.
