    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).
