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 1/2"L x 3/4"W.

        Comments about Roman Glass and Pearl Earrings:

        Along with the necklace, I received these earrings for a milestone birthday. Have had numerous compliments on the color of the glass. It is lovely. And it feels good to wear something that comes to me from 2,000 years ago.

        Saw these in Isreal and had non-buyers regret. Was very happy to see them in catalogue. Have bought quite a bit of jewelry from NG. Love the ones with ancient inspiration.

          Comments about Roman Glass and Pearl Earrings:

          I bought these as a birthday gift for my girlfriend. She collects sea glass and I was drawn to the history behind these earrings. I was sadly surprised when I took them out of the box. They were much lighter in weight than I expected. The metal was bent up and feels very cheap, almost plasticy. The little description card in the box said there is a patina on the glass, but it just looks grimy. And the pearls don't look real at all; they also look like plstic! Everything looks like it was glued together instead of handcrafted. I was very disappointed considering the price I paid and almost returned them. My girlfriend says she loves them though. I just really hope that they don't fall apart after only a few wears. Expected much better from National Geographic.
