Filigree and noble earrings or mystical and dangerous?
Pretty and noble jewellery makes every woman shine. This also applies to a particularly beautiful pair of earrings. The right earrings bring every outfit to life. This can be a large and eye-catching pendant or a small discreet plug in the ear. Especially with a high-necked robe or armour, there is usually no space for necklaces or bracelets. However, there is always enough space for earrings. With the right jewellery you can underline your beguiling charisma. This way you can put the finishing touches to your role as princess or distinguished lady. A coiling snake or an intricately designed magical earring are perfect additions to the character of any witch or magical herbalist. On the other hand, you can show your lineage from a good family with real silver jewellery. You can tell a lot about your character even with simple means. This makes your character even more lively and versatile. The choice of matching earrings often depends on the style of your other clothing. Splendid earrings probably don't go so well with a poor maid, while a noble lady can't dress up enough.
Medieval and ancient earrings
An impressive outfit also needs the right ear jewellery. Today, this applies equally to ladies and gentlemen. Earrings for men also came into fashion as jewellery in the late Middle Ages. However, for the nobleman, knight or rich burgher it remained with the simple and small earring or at most the hammer of Thor. The earrings for men had to do without large ornaments or even an additional gem at all times. For the noble ladies of rank, of course, the jewellery was somewhat different. As in all times, ladies in the Middle Ages knew how to emphasise their beauty and grace. Earrings are a particularly good way of doing this. The men's world at the LARP can certainly be impressed with the right ear jewellery, which underlines the costume of each character. But whatever kind of earrings you choose as special jewellery for yourself - in the pure Middle Ages around the 10th to 13th centuries, earrings were rather the exception. The times were too wild and the price was too high to expose the ears to such danger.
For even piercing the holes was no pleasure because of the danger of infection. This was even more true when such an earring got caught on a branch or in the tunic and injured the ears. The Vikings and Alemanni loved ear jewellery, but it hung on the temples rather than directly on the ears. This so-called temple ring was worn as jewellery with a cloth band around the head near the ears.
Jewellery for the ears in other cultures
With the expert hands of the Arab healers and the great skills of Arab blacksmithing, the earring became a popular accessory in the higher circles as ear jewellery. Of course, this was only true for the extremely wealthy. In ancient times, on the other hand, earrings were already popular among many peoples. Earrings were first found as jewellery in grave finds from 8,000 years ago. These included pendants or crescent-shaped earrings. The Romans and Byzantines were also known for their disc-shaped earrings. Today, we are still amazed by earrings as they were worn in Africa and partly in Asia. There, ear holes were widened early on with ever larger discs until they were six inches or more in diameter. In some cultures, the earrings even became progressively heavier until the earlobes had become really long. Of course, we don't offer you something like that as ear jewellery. But we are sure that you will like one or the other pair of earrings as ear jewellery from our shop and that you will be happy to order them for yourself.
