Howard Carter writes in his description of Tutankhamun's tomb that the Pharaoh's earlobes were perforated, but no earrings were inside the wrappings, although the tomb contained some.
The burial mask's ears were perforated as well, but the holes were covered with golden discs.
() Earrings became fashionable among courtiers and gentlemen in the 1590s during the English Renaissance.
A document published in 1577 by clergyman William Harrison, Description of England, states "Some lusty courtiers and gentlemen of courage do wear either rings of gold, stones or pearls in their ears." Earrings were also commonplace among nomadic Turkic tribes.
Traditionally, a right-side piercing identified a man as gay and left-side as straight.
By the mid-1960s, some physicians offered ear piercing as a service.That implies that at the time, earrings were only worn in Egypt by children, much like in Egypt of Carter's times.Other early evidence of earring-wearing is evident in the Biblical record.Designs range from small loops and studs to large plates and dangling items.The size is ultimately limited by the physical capacity of the earlobe to hold the earring without tearing.
