Earrings have been a popular style statement since ancient times. The idea of wearing jewelry on the ear goes back to the Ancient Egyptians with the earliest known earrings being made in the shape of hoops which later evolved into pendants. It is clear then that the dangle design has been ingrained in the idea of what an earring is since the very first one. The Ancient Egyptians wore dangle earrings as a sign of wealth and status, and this was later adopted by the Greek and Romans who introduced gemstones to the jewelry. Dangle earrings of the Victorian Era were large and heavy yet very popular and would remain that way until the mid 1800’s when styles changed. In the early 20th century the dangle design would make a comeback, helping pave way for the immense amount of variety in the shapes, sizes and materials seen in dangle earrings today!
