01 Jul Ear ear!
You’re going to want to go shopping after you ‘ear out this one.
Ear cuffs may not be new on the style radar, but their inimitable chicness is enough to make one harp about their merits. Head-turning without trying too hard, they tick all the right boxes. The new wave of ear cuff is all about making a ‘less is more’ impact. We decode it for you.
A brief history of the ear cuff
The earliest ear cuff was discovered in 2000 BC near the British Isles but it wasn’t until 350 BC that they became symbols of affluence in Greek society. The Greeks made spectacularly ornate cuffs called kaffa. Ever since, they have continued to appear and disappear off the scene till present day. For instance, they became popular again in 17th Century Russia during its cultural Renaissance period with its fiery style of architectural ornamentation. Ear cuffs were also favoured by yesteryear actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Lita Baron and Miranda Carmen who made bold design their own.
