ear ornament

See our: earrings.

An ornament of various forms, styles, and sizes worn on the ear, including the ear-clip, ear-drop, ear-flare, ear-loop, ear-plug, ear-ring, ear-screw, ear-spool, and ear-stud.

Examples made of pre-Columbian jewelry were often of circular shape with openwork decoration in the lower half or semi-circular shape completely decorated with openwork decoration (sometimes the decoration being very similar to that in a similarly shaped nose ornament). A type made in Indian jewelry covered the entire ear and was so heavy that it had to be supported by, in addition to a band encircling the ear, an attached ornate hair pin; another type was composed of a disc over the lobe and a heavy ornate group of pendants and tassels.
