Earrings are jewelry that is worn on a piercing on any part of the external ear. Earrings are worn by everyone but are most common for women who have been using it for centuries now. Different locations to wear the earring include the earlobe, tragus, helix, rook, daith, conch, and others. Ear piercings usually refer to the earlobe while piercings on the upper ear are called cartilage piercings.
Earrings can be made from a number of materials including beads, wood, bone, precious stone, plastics, metal, and glass. They also have many different styles including studs, loops, hoops, barbells, and more.
