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!

        Comments about Roman Glass and Pearl Necklace:

        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.
