Wear an entirely unique piece of 2,000-year-old history. The glass in this aqua-hued jewelry began life as a vase, jug, or vessel. Uncovered from ancient Roman archaeological sites in modern-day Israel, and sourced from a reputable antique dealer authorized by the Israeli government, each not only bears the marks of its past life as a household or temple object, but also has been transformed by the very earth in which it rested. Each piece of Roman glass is framed by a sterling silver bezel.
I had my eye on these for several years and requested them for my birthday this year. They are very pretty and it's cool to think of wearing a piece of history. They are actually slightly larger than I expected, which is a good thing. And the setting is very attractive.
