Earrings are the most sculptural jewelry expression with unlimited possibilities for design. Earrings are often suspended so that they are visible from all sides, as well as from above and below.
Almost anything can be hung onto or dangled from an ear. Earrings are not limited by the size of the wearer, as are bracelets and rings. While most earring forms are specific to the ear, there are always, matching.
The proximity to the face makes earrings highly visible; one has to look harder to find pendants – which are often covered by shirts or jackets – or rings, which can be small and hard to spot on someone’s hand.
