ABOUT THE ROMAN GLASS

ROMAN GLASS IS AN ANCIENT GLASS DISCOVERED IN ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXCAVATION SITES IN ISRAEL.

ANCIENT ISRAEL WAS ONE OF THE LARGEST GLASS PRODUCERS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE 2,000 YEARS AGO.

THE EXCAVATED GLASS FRAGMENTS FROM THE ROMAN CIVILIZATION IN THE HOLY LAND HAVE BEEN EMBEDDED IN THE SOIL FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. THE PATINA FORMATIONS – THE IRIDESCENT, PEARLY SCALES ON THE SURFACE OF THE GLASS – EVOLVED GRADUALLY OVER CENTURIES AS A RESULT OF PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO SUN, WATER, SOIL AND OXIDATION.

TODAY, THE ROMAN GLASS FRAGMENTS ARE USED BY ASCOPA JEWELRY TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL STERLING SILVER JEWELRY THAT MIXES THE BLUE AND GREEN SHADES OF ANCIENT GLASS AND PATINA, CREATING A PIECE OF ART AND HISTORY TO WEAR WITH LOVE.

ASCOPA JEWELRY PURCHASES ALL THE ROMAN GLASS  FRAGMENTS FROM A CERTIFIED ANTIQUITIE EXPERT  DEALER THAT IS AUTHORIZED BY THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT
