Howard Carter writes in his description of Tutankhamun's tomb that the Pharaoh's earlobes were perforated, but no earrings were inside the wrappings, although the tomb contained some.

That implies that at the time, earrings were only worn in Egypt by children, much like in Egypt of Carter's times.
