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.


Handcrafted in Israel. Approximately 3/4"W x 7"L.

I put off buying this bracelet for a long time as I wasn't sure what I would be getting for that kind of money. I saw it at a museum gift shop and tried it on and it was beautiful. Unfortunately I don't remember the quality being as poor as the one I ordered from National Geographic. It's quite lovely, but the bracelet is very thin and feels like it will snap in two if bent . Also, the backside of one of the Roman glass features isn't even silver coated so I'm sure if you poke it it will fall apart. It's a great bracelet until you look closely and realize the workmanship is quite poor.

        I love the shape of the bracelet and the material of which it is made.
        The two medallions have no distinction from the bracelet material as shown in the catalog. The Roman Glass is distorted.

        Comments about Sterling Silver Roman Glass Bracelet:

        This bracelet was not like the catalog photo. It is thin beaten silver that bends out of shape easily. Medallions are as much bonding plastic as bits of glass.

                    So not like pictured. Sent back for refund. This was as Christmas present and it took forever to get credit to my card. Will not be ordering again.

                        Looked like it would fit a child and it was intended for a grown older woman. It was returned for a refund immediately. Too bad, 'cause I'm always looking for interesting gifts -- thought I'd found one but was wrong.

                            This bracelet looked beautiful in the magazine but it when I received it I thought I had received a child's bracelet. It was made of such a thin metal that I thought it would break if I was to wear it. Also stone was not as described. It was said to be a beautiful piece of glass but unreality it looks like a thin piece of painted plastic.
