Once the pride of archeological collectors, Roman glass has now been transformed into exotic pieces of fine jewelry. Each piece is distinctively set in a gold or silver, specially designed to complement the look and feel of the ancient glass.
In the past, such rare items where only found in museums or in private collections. Now, they can belong to people everywhere.
In the ancient world, before the advent of modern factories, each piece of glassware was hand made by a skilled craftsman, each piece like a small work of art.
This is not plastic or modern mass produced glass.
These artifacts were created centuries ago and yet they seem like timeless patterns designed by a post-impressionist artist. The rich ancient hues have been transformed and softened by the passage of time and by the minerals of the earth, creating a gentle pattern of exotic colors… dark blues fading into magenta...
