Ear piercings are one of the oldest forms of body modification dating back to 3,300BC, when the oldest mummy was found. He too, had pierced ears believe it or not. On the other hand, British sailors in the 16th century would pierce their ears knowing that if they died at sea, the gold could be used to pay for their funeral. Clearly piercings have been an important part of our culture since the beginning of humanity as far we know. In todays world however, they are considered a form of self expression, fashion sense, an extension of ones style even. Hence, for this week we have prepared an ‘Ear Piercing Party’ article for you. We have included some our favourite pieces and have even given you some ideas as to how you can style them. Compelled? See below for more.
This stunning piece by Bibi van der Velden is an ear piercing party on it’s own and it can act as three separate pieces! What more could anyone ask for?! The sweet slug is in 18k yellow gold with a rose quartz body and green tsavorites for eyes, and is designed to climb up the ear lobe. It attaches to the tulip with an 18k rose gold wire, with the 18k rose and yellow gold tulip fashioned to sit at the top of the ear. The flower also sparkles with coloured stones, composed of pink sapphires, amethysts, and blue sapphires, while a moonstone water droplet and a blackened silver ant also sit on the petals, with an opal at the tulip’s centre. The piece comes with a 40cm chain onto which the tulip can be threaded to be worn as a necklace, with a tiny gold maggot on the chain, too.
