The IT Piece


Earrings first made their debut in the Middle East as early as 3,000 B.C. and were intended to provide strangers with a quick and easy clue as to the wearer’s religious, political or tribal identity.

They were also an indicator of the individual’s social status in the community and were worn as a matter of choice and pride by those who were in power and as a label of inferiority and shame by those who were enslaved.

Today their use is primarily ornamental and helps to “tie an outfit” by using colors that match or contrast with the overall look. They can range anywhere in size from metallic or jeweled studs to large bangles.
As the season changes, and the fall trends begin to define what we choose to wear, earrings are only getting larger and used more and more as the focal accessory.
When deciding what to wear, do you find that a great pair of earrings, can help you put your outfit together? What piece of jewelry do you feel does this?
