the popularity of earrings in todayís era, many people are surprised to find
out that earrings first appeared in the Middle East. While earrings were
considered a bit taboo for many years, in the early 1900ís earrings began to
appear as a fashion statement. During this time earrings were produced only as
clip-on accessories. In the 1960ís and 1970ís the style changed from clip-on
earrings to pierced styles. Today many people without pierced ears have a
difficult time finding clip-on earrings.
The style of earrings has evolved drastically over the past several years.

choose a pair of earrings that are hypo-allergenic. If the earrings you choose
are made from precious metals, they are likely suitable to be worn by those
with sensitive ears. Earrings made of other types of metal like surgical
steel, should contain the words hypo-allergenic. This lessens the likelihood
of having sensitivity issues to the earrings.
