Earrings are big bold and beautiful this year as we saw on most of the major runway’s for spring/summer 2010 and it’s another great accessory to make a statement with. In recorded history, earrings have been traced back to the ancient city of Perspolis, Persia, where the illustrations on the walls depict soldiers wearing earrings. During the Roman Empire, jewellery was crafted and worn with gusto as a sign of status and luxury and the earrings were made of shiny materials and gem stones so that they could illuminate the face. The popularity of earrings also largely depended on the fashions that prevailed at the time, today whether the earrings are for pierced ears or clip on’s earrings are always fashionable and they are a hot item. Their made of any number of materials, including plastic, glass, precious stones, beads, and other materials and have become lighter in weight, so if you are one of those people who love to spark up your style and love big earrings this is the year for you.
