Mother’s Day is an annual holiday and worldwide celebration honoring motherhood. Mother’s Day occurs on Sunday, May 13, in the United States. This holiday was created by Anna Jarvis, a women rights activist who pushed legislation through Congress making this an official U.S. holiday. Her work resulted in the 1914 Mother’s Day Proclamation, signed President Woodrow designating Mother's Day, as a national holiday.
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses. A particular aspect to Mothers’ Day is giving gifts that traditionally involves presenting moms with flowers, cards and other gifts including jewelry and clip on earrings make the perfect present.
To set the stage for fashionable gifts for Mother’s Day, earrings became fashionable during the mid-19th century. Women abandoned the bonnets that had been in fashion and began styling their hair up. Earrings now re-emerged as a fashionable accessory, but Victorians believed that piercing the flesh was uncivilized. As the 20th century began, a solution was engineered with the invention of clip on earrings. This new design allowed people to decorate their ears without the “disgrace” of piercing holes in their ear lobes. The crystal chandelier style of clip-on earrings is now considered an icon of Victorian era fashion.
Clip-on earrings enjoyed another surge in popularity during the 1920s when the short, boy-like hairstyles worn by flappers offered ear embellishments to become a focal point once again. Diamante clip-on earrings became prevalent in the 1920s due to their simple, elegant styling. The clip-on trend continued to be the fashion trend throughout most of the 20th century.
