Overview

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.


These sterling silver cufflinks feature iridescent slivers of Roman glass found in Israel. The colors come from thousands of years of contact with minerals in the surrounding soil. No two fragments will be exactly the same.
