  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Earrings 
  rings  properly  for  the  ear  (Gen.  35:4;  Num.  31:50;  Ezek.  16:12). 
  In  Gen.  24:47  the  word  means  a  nose-jewel,  and  is  so  rendered  in 
  the  Revised  Version.  In  Isa.  3:20  the  Authorized  Version  has 
  "ear-rings,"  and  the  Revised  Version  "amulets,"  which  more 
  correctly  represents  the  original  word  (lehashim),  which  means 
  incantations;  charms,  thus  remedies  against  enchantment,  worn 
  either  suspended  from  the  neck  or  in  the  ears  of  females. 
  Ear-rings  were  ornaments  used  by  both  sexes  (Ex.  32:2).
