How to clean my Irish earrings

About Irish Earrings


Whether you have gold drop earrings, shamrock earrings, or silver stud earrings, it is essential to take steps to keep your Irish earrings clean and prevent scratches. Avoid using cleaning solutions or materials that could scrape or scuff the gold, silver, or gemstone. Use a cloth or a small towel to wipe your earrings gently. Take extra care with drop earrings, as they often have delicate parts. 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


In ancient Celtic Ireland, upper-class men wore gold earrings to convey their status. During this period, an earring was named an Unasc: 'u' meant 'the ear,' and 'nasc' represented a ring or clasp. Men wore a variety of different types of ear clasps. Nowadays, many Irish men still wear earrings, but there is no particular tradition behind this. Instead, it is purely a matter of choice and fashion.
