Before ear piercing, and even before clip-on earrings, the Celts had their own style of ear jewelry. Around 1200 BC, their metal working skill and tools became advanced enough to make small, delicate pieces of jewelry. So along with their necklaces, cloak fasteners and hair ornaments, the men of ancient Ireland began to wear earrings.
These early Celtic design earrings had two parts: a small, elastic loop that went around the ear and a decorative piece that hung from that loop below the ear. Although this was the Bronze Age, they were most often made of gold. Specifically, they were usually two pieces of gold twisted around each other. Later, silver became popular for Celtic jewelry too.
Styles change, and Irish made silver earrings evolved along with everything else. Different styles of earring became popular in Ireland. But one thing didn’t change much. Earrings, like other forms of jewelry, have always been a way for people to express themselves.
Today’s Celtic drop earrings are a way for people to express their connection with their Celtic roots or their love of the Celtic cultures. Symbols such as the Tree of Life and the Trinity Knot go back centuries. Everyone recognizes the shamrock as a symbol of Ireland at a glance. They make a deep statement about the wearer’s identity and interests, inviting conversation and admiration.
