Roman glass was an industrially manufactured substance used by the Romans all over their empire. A large amount of these glass-made vessels were buried and remained intact until their unearthing in later times. While in the ground, some of the glass became oxidized, resulting in a colorful pigment layer -called patina- covering the vessels. This patina gives the vessels a thin tarnish creating a fascinating spectrum of blue, green, purple, red, gold and silver. Today, our jewelry is inlaid with this same glass, delicately handled, cut and restored, passed on to us by the ancient Romans
