Earrings of Karen

Earrings Both Sgaw and Pwo women wear silver earrings having a cylindrical part which is thrust through the holes in the ear lobes (bevelled so they will stay in the ear) with a cup-shaped outer part. These vary in size. Often brightly colored tufts of wool and other decorative objects are attached.
Some Pwo men wear rhinestone earings with wool tassels. In some areas Pwo men and women used to wear ivory ear plugs with a stick-like portion extending to as much as ten cm. These are now rarely seen.
