Conquer your own piece of the Roman Empire
2,000 year-old treasure from the ancient world, handcrafted in the Holy Land
Arches. Paved roadways. Newspapers. The western calendar. These are just a few of the innovations pioneered by the Roman Empire that we still enjoy today. This same empire also innovated glassware by introducing glassblowing to the world on a massive scale.
While glass existed prior to the Roman Empire, it was time-consuming to make, thick-walled and required considerable finishing. But with the rise of glassblowing in the 1st Century A.D., glass became thinner, quicker to make, required less finishing, and fewer materials. This led to an explosion of glass objects, and the skill, beauty, and craftsmanship of the Roman Empire was unmatched anywhere in the world.
Now, you can claim your own piece of the Roman Empire. That’s right: You can own a 2,000-year-old piece of ancient art through this Stauer exclusive offer.
At an archaeological excavation in modern-day Israel, we’ve uncovered Roman glass as old as 63 B.C. that began its life as a temple vessel, water jug, or simple household object. This glass has been transformed by nature into something entirely new. Roman glass has a patina that shimmers with a mosaic of colors that mesmerizes like a fine opal. These earrings are handmade in Israel by a skilled craftsman of this lost art, who has embraced drops of Roman glass in sterling silver intricately shaped to reflect the ancient world. This jewelry is unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere.
