So what is Roman Glass?
The Roman Empire is credited with building a great civilization renowned for its artistic and technological achievements.
At the peak of its power nearly 2000 years ago, Rome controlled the entire Mediterranean Sea area. The industrialization of glass production is considered one of its most significant technological accomplishments.
The Roman Glass in these fine jewelry is excavated in Israel, in archaeological sites dating back to the period of the Romans nearly 2000 years ago.
Roman glass cannot be duplicated artificially. The glass has been exposed to oxide-rich damp soil for nearly 2000 years. As a result to this exposure, stunning unique formations rich with colors and shapes occurred at outer layer called patina. These colors vary depending on the minerals and the conditions to which the glass has been exposed. Every piece of glass is unique and enables you to literally wear history!
