Two-thousand years ago, the aqua-hued glass fragments in this unique jewelry were part of a vase, jug, or vessel. It may have been a wineglass used to toast a business deal, a temple vessel that held holy oil, a bottle of perfume given to woo a sweetheart. Over the centuries, the broken pieces—recovered from ancient Roman archaeological sites in modern-day Israel—became textured and colored through exposure to minerals in the earth, and now bear unique traces of their long-ago life. Each piece of Roman glass is framed by a sterling silver bezel and dotted with tiny freshwater pearls.


Handcrafted in Israel. 1"L x 3/4"W pendant; 17 1/2" chain with lobster clasp.

    Comments about Roman Glass and Pearl Necklace:

    This is an absolutely gorgeous necklace. I love the color and design. It really dresses up casual attire. Then, why only 1 star. You can't get the stone wet. Yes, that's right. You cannot get water on the stone. This was NOT stated in the description when I purchased it. I only found out after I received it and read the insert booklet. Also, the loop on the stone that the chain goes through is very small, just ever so slightly bigger than the chain. As a result, instead of sliding freely to stay centered, it catches on the beads of the chain and rides up. I was constantly having to pull it around, which was difficult because it kept catching on the beads and wouldn't move easily.

      Comments about Roman Glass and Pearl Necklace:

      I purchased the earrings & necklace as a set. They are lovely & unique. My one complaint is that the clasp that holds the necklace to the chain is too small, causing the necklace to catch on the chain. It doesn't slide freely. I will be taking this to a jeweler to have it fixed. I've worn the earrings several times & have received compliments on them. Can't wait to wear everything as a set. Thanks!

        I have had my eye on this set for sometime and my husband gave it to me for a milestone birthday--my 65th. It feels good to wear something so beautiful and elegant that is 2,000 years old. Gives me perspective on being 65.

          Roman glass and druzy agate: two unusual materials combine to form a truly conversation-starting necklace. Atlanta-based artist Mickey Lynn begins by sorting through fragments of 2,000-year-old Roman glass to find the best colors. After Roman craftsmen discovered glassblowing in the 1st century A.D., it became one of the most widely available materials in the Roman world. Today, aqua-colored fragments are abundant, their colors having developed over centuries of contact with the earth.

          Many people are surprised to learn that glass was one of the most widely available materials in the ancient world. By the 1st century A.D., glassblowing techniques had been perfected to the point where household items like glass cups and vessels were common. Two thousand years later, fragments of this ancient glass are found throughout the lands of the former Roman Empire.

          During the 1st century AD, glass production in the Roman world drastically changed as the art of glass blowing was discovered and vessels for everyday use began to be made in aqua hues. Remains of many 2,000-year-old drinking glasses, vases, and jugs continue to be uncovered across the former Roman Empire, especially in Israel. Each glass medallion in this remarkable necklace was once part of an object that was created more than two millennia ago. It may have been part of a water vessel carried by a servant, or a bottle that held perfume or medicine.

          Through the 1700s, the main industry in the seaside town of Torre del Greco had been harvesting coral, or "red gold." When the ruins of nearby Pompeii were excavated, it became a must-see destination with England's elite. Cameos made from the shells harvested by local fishermen were one of the most popular souvenirs to show off one's well-traveled status. This romantic necklace pairs a rustic, hand-carved cameo portrait with a string of cultured pearls.

          The night bazaar in Thailand’s cultural capital of Chiang Mai bustles with creative energy. Artisans and food sellers cover several city blocks, and many artisans keep studios nearby. One such studio is run by three young sisters, whose resemblance is so striking they’re often mistaken for triplets. There they hand-string cultured pearls and gold-tone brass beads to create this romantic triple-strand necklace.
