The earliest evidences of men earrings are found in the wall paintings of Persepolis in Persia. Throughout history men earrings have been admired and worn by sailors, soldiers, local Indians, pirates, etc with a sense of pride. The Western society, however, adopted this style a bit later- in the early 20th century.
Today, fashion loving men wear earrings to get a distinguished appearance. There are many stores out there selling a wide variety of these.
Modern men earrings are available in materials including metal, glass, beads, precious stones, and plastic. These are of different sizes too.
It is better to go for light weighted men earrings for regular wear. Heavy earring lovers should avoid wearing these for a prolonged period of time. Hairstyles play a very decisive role in whether or not a particular earring will suit one. For those with long hairs, cross earrings go well. Short hair wearers may opt for ear tops. Further, a man can never go wrong with silver earrings. Fair complexioned men should opt for black silver earrings. Gun metal or steel earrings also look great on men. Multicolored men earrings are too in fashion, but it is not advisable to opt for these unless looking fanciful is on your mind!
