The history of pierced earrings tracks back to the Middle East, as early as 3,000 B.C. and were originally intended to provide strangers with a quick and easy clue as to the wearer's religious, political or tribal identity. Originally crafted of metals that could be bent, flattened and twisted into unique designs and hoops, earrings became more elaborate in the second century A.D. when assorted gems were introduced. Post earrings, which became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages, have remained one of the leading earring styles for centuries.
