How to clean my Irish earrings

About Irish Earrings


Whether you have gold drop earrings, shamrock earrings or stud earrings, it is important to take steps to keep your irish earrings clean and prevent scratches. Try not to use any cleaning solutions or materials that could scrape or scuff the gold or stone. Use a cloth or a small towel to gently wipe your earrings. Take extra care with drop earrings, as they often have delicate parts. With Shamrock drop earrings, make sure you clean every section and hold the earrings by the base. When you are not wearing your earrings, or if you take them out, keep them in a safe place.

Is it a tradition for Irish males to get an earring?

About Irish Earrings


Historically, gold earrings were worn by high-class men to show their status. An earring was once called an Unasc, which comes from ‘u’ (the ear) and ‘nasc’ (a clasp or ring). There were several kinds of ear clasp worn by men, but it seems that the ear was not pierced. Instead, a thin ring was clasped around the ear, and from this, another smaller ring was suspended. Now, many Irish men do still chose to wear earrings, but there is no particular tradition behind this. Instead, it is purely a matter of choice and fashion.
