ear-pendants. Ornaments worn on the earlobes made of metal or jade. Earrings can be made of metal, plastic, glass, precious stones and other materials. Some are circled, some are hanging, some are granular. The weight and size of the earrings is limited by the body's ability to bear. Some people who are used to wearing heavy earrings will find that the earrings and ear holes have been stretched for a long time.
Hanging earrings are found in many ancient and modern places and cultures around the world. In many cultures, there is a habit of ear piercing for newly-born girls. This practice is controversial because it is not the wishes of the baby. Male ear piercing is becoming more and more common in modern society.
