Own a unique piece of Holy Land antiquity - genuine 'Roman Glass' set in pair of sterling silver decorative 'rectangle' earrings.
Biblical themed jewelry based on archaeological excavations in the Holy Land - made on a kibbutz in Israel.
Before the Roman period, glass was made with a sand core mold, and was extremely expensive. But during the Roman period, glass blowing was invented, which changed the entire glass industry. Glass became much more common.
One of the first types of vessels to be made using this new blowing technique is the small elongated bottle that we call the “tear bottle”. The shards used for our jewelry come from these ancient bottles from antiquity.
