Sterling Silver Roman Glass 8x10mm Teardrop Dangle Earrings 3/8”w x 1 7/8”h
This collection includes over two thousand year old Roman glass that has been excavated in Israel. These fragments of glass are witness to the ingenuity and revolutionary glass blowing techniques of the Romans. Romans used glass primarily for vessels and was made by cast which took a lot of time. But during the 1st century AD, glass was being made by blowing in a blow pipe an inflating molten glass into a bubble. Glass production became faster and more vessels were being made. In excavated Roman glass you find the element of nature and the centuries of chemical processes has bestowed a rainbow patina on the surface of each piece of glass. Some pieces in our collection the patina has been washed to leave the pale aqua colored glass. This collection is handmade with sterling silver in Israel and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Care: To preserve patina do not allow glass to come into contact with water, apply hair spray and perfume before wearing earrings and necklaces. A polishing cloth is all you will need to care for the sterling silver.
