Ear jewellery is mostly paired worn jewellery that is drawed through the jabbed earlobe or clamped to the ear.

The origin of this kind of jewellery seems to be western Asia.

As far back as the Neolithic Age ear piercings have been worn in the Middle East. There was ear jewellery from simple copper rings since the early Bronze Age. Golden ear jewellery with filigree work is known from Egypt, crescent or spiral-shaped and bail earrings together with animal head – ear studs were worn in Greece.

Nobles from Indian peoples in Middle America wore golden ear jewellery and earplugs with bordered turquoises. Starting with the 16th century women preferred pearl-pendants contrary to the “Girandoles”, which consisted of a top section, an intermediate piece such as a ribbon and three or more heavyweight hanging pearls, that to the bail through the earlobe often was added an additional eyelet to the hair to relieve the ears a little.

Whether Earring, Ear stud, Clip or Creole that is attached to the ear, contemporary jewellery offers the possibility to fashion large lightweight ear jewellery due to the variety of materials.
