The History of Earrings
Beverly Loan Company is a high-end collateral lender that has been in Beverly Hills, California for over 75 years and has decades of experience with all styles of jewelry – including earrings of all types and eras.
Decorations for the ears is one of the principal styles of jewelry and has been around for over 7,000 years. Styles have greatly changed over the years from pearl studs and ear pendants to chandelier earrings, diamond studs, and hoops – all of which can be brought in to Beverly Loan Company.
Often time’s earrings were worn to signify someone was wealthy or in a higher class – this was noted for Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and in later years the wealthy in India and China. This however changed with the times, and in the 13th century ear piercing was forbidden by the Catholic Church; as a result only pirates, thieves and the lower class continued to wear earrings. This conviction did not stick around for long, and by the 16th century earrings were more popular than ever; even William Shakespeare was known to wear a gold hoop in his ear.
Nowadays earrings are an almost every day accessory for most women around the world. Earrings of all styles and metals are more affordable than ever. Typically either sterling silver, gold, or platinum is used to craft earrings of all styles, and semi-precious stones like amethyst, garnet, topaz, aquamarine and tourmaline are often used in earrings. The more expensive and luxurious earrings, the earrings seen at Beverly Loan Company, usually have diamonds, emeralds, sapphires or rubies – along with heavy gold and platinum.
Luxury earrings can be purchased, sold, or brought in for a collateral loan (or pawn loan) at Beverly Loan Company. Please call 310-275-2555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
