The rare shards of roman glass set in Angie Olami's jewelry are 2000 years old. They have been unearthed by archaeologists in Israel on ancient city sites that were once part of the Roman Empire. The iridescent colors have evolved gradually over the centuries as part of the glass's chemical reaction to the sun, the water and the earth in which it was buried. The designs for the settings are based on artifacts and drawings also discovered on archaeological digs in Israel. All of Angie Olami's Roman glass jewelry is hand cut from different fragments which makes each piece truly one of a kind.
It is recommended that you keep the glass in your jewelry dry as water may alter or impair the shimmery patina.
