Earrings have a surprisingly long and rich history. Evidence has been found that people were piercing their ears as early as 3,000 BC!
There are many reasons why people wear earrings. We’re used to wearing earrings because we enjoy their sparkle and shine, but earrings have also been worn to show social status, religious affiliations, and to reveal other aspects of the wearer’s identity.
Some people believe that earrings have health benefits: there are those who say wearing earrings can help fight off infection – even the dreaded common cold!
We’re not so sure that earrings really can boost your immune system, but they can surely lift your mood! When we look good, we feel good – and for horse lovers, that means finding horse earrings!
Horse Jewelry: Earrings
There are certain motifs that show up time and time again when you’re looking at horse earrings. Stirrups are very popular, especially when coupled with a small gemstone such as a diamond. Bits and bridles designs work well in gold horse earrings. Horseheads are another favorite, featuring horses with and without bridles on.
Perhaps the most popular type of horse earrings are horseshoe earrings, such as these handmade sterling silver horseshoe earrings. Horseshoes are considered to be a symbol of good luck. You’ll feel lucky when you’re wearing these earrings: they’re designed with the active horsewoman in mind! Their small size means you can wear them confidently all day long – even when you’re in the barn! (Not all earrings pass the ‘nuzzle’ test – you don’t need your horse’s morning greeting to catch in your jewelry!) There’s also dressy enough to go everywhere: to the office, to dinner, to check out that new horse trailer you simply have to have before the show season starts.
Be careful! Horse earrings are addictive! You may buy a single pair, only to find that you enjoy wearing them so much that you need another pair, and another, and another! Perfect for gift giving too: earrings like these are great for the teen rider!
