History: The earliest diamonds were found in India in 4th century BC, although the youngest of these deposits were formed 900 million years ago. A majority of these early stones were transported along the network of trade routes that connected India and China, commonly known as the Silk Road.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

Early earrings were most often actual rings or crescents of metal or carved stone slipped through a pierced hole in the earlobe. The oldest earrings that archaeologists have found are thought to be between 8,500-8,200 years old.

While post styles of earrings were worn by the Etruscans before the rise of Rome, the post or stud style of earrings we know today were first commonly available in the 1920s.
