Earrings are no longer just for women — now there are earrings for him, too. In fact, history has shown that for centuries, earrings were mainly worn by men. Find the earrings that perfectly suit your or your partner’s style in BAUNAT's collection.


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 worldwide 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.

Which types of earrings can I wear as a man?

The most common types of earring for men are studs in a rather muted 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. It involves wearing 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 rose gold.
