Modern Earrings

The origin of earrings lies in the Middle East. And at first people wore earrings for the sake of safety. It was thought that evil spirits could get into body through moth, ears or other "holes". So by wearing earrings (and by the way using lipstick) people tried to protect themselves. After that people started to wear earrings to show others his social status, their religious beliefs and sometimes political views. Today of course the purposes of wearing earrings have changed.
