History of Earrings: Pierced 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. Earrings 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. The Roman Empire in the first century had upper class women competing with each other in ornate styles of gold earrings. The trend change and adding gemstones to the gold became commonplace. The women adored its attractiveness and sparkling sheen. The use of semi-precious and precious stones had their jewelery increase in value.
