Silver earrings have been worn for centuries. A variety of styles have transcended the passage of time unaltered, however, many new styles are closely tied to clothing, which is in vogue or out of fashion.
The vast majority of these silver dangle earrings are high fashion statements worn by younger generations of women, and occasionally men. All of the sub groups of this family of silver earrings are distinctive and well defined; one even harkens back to earlier eras, such as the marcasite jewelry silver earrings, which are based on vintage 1920's throwbacks to the age of the Charleston Dance and Great Gatsby novel. This is in striking contrast to the new styles of silver filigree earrings, silver chandelier earrings, and silver drop earrings.
The series of silver post earrings are typically smaller earrings, happily worn by men and women and often occupying multiple holes along the curvature of the ear.
