Jewelry: Small, decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as pins, rings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets and earrings.
Earring: A piece of jewelry attached to the ear via a piercing in the earlobe or another external part of the ear, except in the case of clip on earrings, which generally clip onto the earlobe.
What do you get when you mix a love of jewelry with a passion for wearing long, dangling, gorgeous earrings? Exquisite adornment that highlights and frames your fabulous face. Classic jewelry taste!
Earrings are worn by both sexes, although more common among women, and have been used and worn by different civilizations in different times.
Earrings Fun Fact: Locations for ear piercings other than the earlobe include the rook, tragus, and across the helix of the ear. The simple term “ear piercing” usually refers to an earlobe piercing, whereas piercings of the upper part of the external ear are referred to as “cartilage piercings”. Cartilage piercings are more complex to perform than earlobe piercings and generally take longer to heal.
Earrings may be made from a number of materials, including metal, plastic, glass, precious stone, beads, wood, bone and other materials. Although designs of earrings range from posts and studs to large plates and dangling items, I tend to find large, beautiful, dangle earrings fashionable and alluring with any outfit.
Swing and sway the large earring way!
Ear piercing is one of the oldest known forms of body modification, with artistic and written references from cultures around the world dating back to early history. Evidence of earrings worn by men can be seen in archeological evidence from Persepolis in ancient Persia. The carved images of soldiers of the Persian Empire, displayed on some of the surviving walls of the place, show them wearing an earring.
Earring Not So Fun Fact: Although glamorous to wear, heavy pierced earrings worn over extended periods of time may lead to stretching of the earlobe and the piercing itself. Warning: the pierced hole will become a long slit, that can split the earlobe. If you adore large heavy earrings, you may want to consider wearing clip ons.
Or, alternate between wearing pierced earrings and clip ons to give your sensitive, soft earlobes a rest!
For a look that is unique and trendy, why not wear only one large, long, feminine earring on only one ear? Perhaps pull your hair back on one side, show off your long rhinestone or diamond earring, and leave the other ear bare, with your hair hanging down for a look that is elegant and classy but also cool and sassy?
Whichever side you prefer, right or left, when wearing only one exquisite earring you’ll make a splash and look your best! Not so sure? Give it a try and put my suggestion to the test!
Let your signature style swing and sway the long earring way!

Earrings are a sexy, splendid, sensational item of jewelry!
The word jewelry is derived from the word ‘jewel’, which was anglicized from the Old French ‘joule’, and beyond that, to the Latin word ‘jocale’, meaning plaything. In British English, Indian English, New Zealand English, Hiberno-English, Australian English and South African English, the word is spelled jewellery, while the spelling in American English is jewelry.
Earring Fun Fact: Multiple piercings in one or both ears emerged in mainstream America in the 1970s. Initially, the trend was for women to wear a second set of earrings in the earlobes, or for men to double-pierce a single earlobe.
My oh my, your glorious earrings take my breath away. Large, dazzling, superb earrings are here to stay!
