In Feng Shui, the wearing of earrings is not a must, however, these jewels bring an additional asset to attract good waves and promote the circulation of Chi.
A little history
Did you know that the oldest pair of earrings in the world dates back to about 8000 years before our era. They were found in Chifeng in Mongolia and have a hemicircular shape. They were made of jade stone, already precious at that time. Later, similar accessories, but in gold, were found in Mesopotamia.
It is only from the 8th century that the first earrings were worn in Europe and mainly in Greece. They were represented by crescent moons, then over time, their shape has evolved. It was not uncommon to find models set with precious stones. What we call today creoles were very popular in Rome for many centuries.
However, these earrings were not worn by everyone. Indeed, they were royal attributes or worn by the great families. For the record, in India, earrings, like many pieces of jewelry, were not transmitted from generation to generation in order not to transmit the karma of the deceased. As soon as the owner died, the earrings were melted down to make other jewelry.
Over the years, earrings have become very popular. They ended up becoming common accessories, worn on a larger scale by a large part of the population. If in the past, men and women wore this type of jewelry indifferently, the exclusive use of women has however been widely spread in the West. By fashion trends, earrings for men were also worn, but in a more discreet way or on the contrary, more flashy by wearing large precious stones. Another fashion borrowed from different aboriginal peoples came: the lobe spreader. Worn indifferently by men or women, they seduce mainly tattoo artists or piercing enthusiasts.
