Ear cuffs were worn by women since ancient times for decorative purposes
They were popular among different cultures around the world in the past to represent their styles, ranks, marital status, age and were seen as an art form on the ear. The alteration of the earrings’ designs has changed a lot since the beginning of their existence to make them more comfortable to wear or simply to respond to the changes in fashion.
One of the first ear cuffs were called “kaffa”
However, the main reason to wear earrings throughout history was their decorative function. For example, centuries ago, the ear cuff was called “Kaffa” and it was meant to be put on the outside part of the ear as an embellishing element, which didn’t require women to have pierced ears.
We can see these beautiful adornments coming into fashion every now and then, but for different reasons and styles.
For instance, if we go back in the 50’s and 60’s, we can spot celebrities like Marilyn Monroe wearing ear cuffs, and again they were so favoured and trendy that the person who created the “earrites” in the 1920’s, Marcel Boucher, decided to get legal rights on his designs.
