Ear adornment has for the most part been a female's domain in most cultures for eons--modern hipster-men's ear decor notwithstanding.
The reason for ear jewels is pretty much intuitive. The ear jewels, prominently or discretely at the side of a woman's face, add attractive light and appeal to her pretty visage. Also earrings are located close enough to the eye area so that when the sparkly stones in them shimmer from afar--it actually adds a lovely impression of dancing to the eyes.
Clever jewelry designers are not known to leave things alone. So they've conjured up all kinds of ways to cuddle the lobes of lovelies.
