In ancient times the earring was a status symbol; worn largely by men, bejewelled with precious stones, they were a mark of higher class in Egyptian and Assyrian society. As every archaeologist knows, every piece of jewellery has a tale to tell.
Whether elegantly spilling along the neck, or sitting pretty against the lobe, earrings are the perfect way to complement the shape of the face and personal colouring; be sure to choose yours wisely. For fairer hair and features, select silver, white gold and softly coloured stones, as can be seen in the Sky Drop collection. Brunettes and dark skinned beauties can afford to go wild with vibrant colours; the warmth of Arabian Nights or frivolous Artemis could be for you.
