Sterling Silver Roman Glass Bracelet
(Based on 15 reviews)
Category: Jewelry/Bracelets

Archaeologists have uncovered glass fragments from across the Roman Empire, from vases, vessels, even windowpanes. This asymmetrical cuff bracelet features two medallions of ancient glass excavated in Israel. The iridescent patina develops over 2,000 years of contact with moisture and minerals in the earth, and has made Roman glass popular with collectors for centuries. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Engraved gems were one of the most sought-after luxury items in the ancient world, and with great luxury comes the demand for great imitations. Roman artisans became skilled in using pasta vitra, or glass paste, to simulate gemstones, and the effect was no less brilliant. They could then carve images into the glass in a process called intaglio, or they could use glass paste and lost-wax casting methods to produce consistent results.

Authentic Roman glass fragments complement a pink piece of agate druzy in this natural bracelet. Each glass disc is roughly 2,000 years old, and may once have been part of a drinking glass or jar. Atlanta-based artist Mickey Lynn chooses pieces that range from teal to translucent aqua—all colored by centuries of contact with the earth.

During the Roman Empire, as now, people used glass vessels in all shapes and sizes to store wine, medicine, perfumes, and food. The aqua-hued medallions in our elegant bracelet are fragments recovered from this ancient glass. Excavated in Israel, the pieces of glass are cut and polished, but still retain the texture of constant use. Each piece is set in a gold-plated sterling silver bezel.
