A little bit of History; From Kaffas to Ear Cuffs…
Since ancient times, ear cuffs have been worn by many women from different cultures and countries. In 2000 BC, they were called “Kaffas”. Around 350 BC, Greek aristocrats wore those ear adornments in gold. They had a decorative function but it represented also their social status. Same case later, when they appeared in Europe in the in the 18th Century.
Kaffas images were also seen in Indian and Thai art dating from the 12th Century.
In the 1950s, they became so popular that the French jeweler, Marcel Boucher, patented his creation (an ear jewel clipped and pinned to the earlobe).
Thirty years later, during the pop and punk 80s, famous fashion designers put ear cuffs on the runways, and since then those must-have accessories have been reinvented over and over each season.
