Earrings originated in Asia and have been worn for over 7000 years. Throughout their long an illustrious history, they have flitted between being more popular with man and women, and between a sign of wealth or the lower classes. Banned by the Catholic church in 13th century, earrings grew in popularity among pirates, smugglers and other sections of society who were looked down upon.
Since the Renaissance Period of the 14th and 15th centuries, however, earrings have been seen as a sign of style and sophistication.
Earrings come in all shapes and sizes and can help define your face, so the style of earring you choose is important. At Arctic Fame stores across Vancouver, our expert jewelers can help you choose the styles that will work best based on your natural face shape, dress style and occasion.
Long dangly earrings lengthen the face and neck, and are often worn by women who have a square face. Angular earrings can help make flat facial features stand out more while an angular face can be softened with earrings that are round or oval.
The size of earrings is also important. Large earrings will draw attention to your face but can be overbearing if you have small features.
The good news is that no matter what size or style of earrings you’re looking for, at Arctic Fame we have something for everyone. You can check out our earring range online or come and see us in person at one of our Vancouver stores at:
