Jewelry is used by men and women throughout the known world to change or enhance physical appearance.


Earrings are rarely mentioned in text, and the word "earring" never appears as such. The handful of mentions made of ear piercings are actually for males with jeweled studs in their ears, or exotic foreigners not from Westeros (and even these are scarce).

It appears to be generally uncommon for men to have ear piercings in Westeros.

Nonetheless a stray mention is made at Sansa Stark's wedding to Tyrion Lannister that "moonstones hung from her ears and about her neck" - implying that it is actually commonplace for female nobility in Westeros to wear earrings.[4]
