Liz says: Earrings we all love wearing a special set of earrings. I put together this collection of great looking earrings and really great gem stones, moonstone etc. At Dressing To Impress we have many styles and free shipping. Earrings have remained popular for more than 7000 years, and originated in ancient Asia. Egyptians would once wear earrings to signify the fact they were wealthy or of a higher class. However, in ancient Rome, earrings were worn only by slaves, and in ancient Greece by prostitutes.
