By Fabio DeMartino

Looking beautiful is something that women have always wanted for long. They have sought beauty by wearing cosmetics, jewelry, various designs of clothing and other things. You can make a statement about yourself by wearing jewelry that suits your preferences.

Some jewelry items are more frequently selected over others and an example is earrings. Italian gold earrings in general have come to be very popularworldwide and the following is the reason why people love them a lot.

Italians have loved gold for hundreds of years. The producing of gold products in Italy began around three thousand years ago in Tuscany and they continue making the products now.

The artistic Italian goldsmiths made their art perfect as time passed and they became successful in the production of extremely pleasing and attractive jewelry. The jewelry they made was of fine gold and with expertise that amazed many. This trend continues today.

Italy now proudly processes and utilizes 500 tons of fine gold each year. It provides employment for more than 40,000 people in the gold industry where almost 10,000 related companies work.

Italians usually use gold containing eighteen carats. The carat unit is a measurement of how much gold an alloy contains. It is not possible to use gold when in its original form due to its fragile and soft nature. This calls for the use of base metals to make gold stronger and they make it stronger by chemical combination to create alloys. The metals commonly used are nickel, copper and silver among others. Gold that is pure usually contains twenty-four carats.

The type of jewelry made for wearing on ears is the earring. The earlobe is the common ear part that people wear earrings on at the lower part. However, it is possible to wear earrings on other ear parts and the cartilage area is one ideal part to wear an earring. Although earrings are mainly popular with women, many men now also find it cool to wear earrings. When piercing ears the ear-piercing limit that a person should not exceed is nine.

In Italy, 18 carats is the gold standard. Earrings in Italy are predominantly produced in 14 and 18 carats. They are more durable and need less maintenance. Their prices rely on their design, their size and their gold content in carats.

There is a vast variety of designs and styles of earrings to select from. Some of these styles include stud earrings having a stick like structure at the back which is not visible and going through the ear lobe. Hoop earrings are mostly circular and sometimes square shaped and go through the ear lobe on the top. Dangling earrings hang down from the lobe to different lengths, sometimes reaching till the shoulders. Huggy earrings simply wrap around the earlobe area. Chandelier earrings are shaped like chandeliers and are available in numerous lengths.

Italian jewelry bracelets are loved by women across the globe. To access further info about buying Italian gold earrings click on the hyperlinks.
