    Earring

    Juni 21st, 2013

    An earring is a piece of jewelry that is worn pierced or clipped to the ear. Most earrings are attached to the earlobe, but can also be attached to almost any other part of the ear. Earrings can be made of nearly any material such as metal, glass, stone, beads, wood and plastic and there are many different styles of earings such as hoops, studs or plates. Ear piercing is one of the oldest body modifications known. They were first worn by wealthy men of ancient Persia and became very popular amongst European sailors in the 15th century. For sailors wearing an earring was a symbol that showed they had sailed around the world and crossed the equator. In the 1960s earrings were worn again by hippies and gay men. Since then musicians have been keeping the trend alive.

    Ring

    Juni 21st, 2013

    A ring is a piece of jewelry that is worn on one or more fingers and usually consists of a band of metal, plastic, stone or glass. This band is often decorated with a gemstone such as a ruby, diamond or almost any other material. Rings were already worn by ancient Egyptians and Greek and were very popular in the Middle Ages. The tradition of trading rings is approximately 6000 years old and is common in most parts of the world. In most countries and cultures the wedding ring is worn around the ring finger of the left hand although some cultures wear it on the right hand. The origin of putting rings on the ring finger of the left hand comes from the old belief that there is a vein that leads straight from the left ring finger to the heart.
