These dramatic earrings look as if the sterling silver has been painted across the rounded Roman Glass fragments, leaving the texture of the brush intact. Roman Glass Jewelry is made of 2000-year-old Roman Glass that has been excavated from sites around present-day Israel. The glass is set by hand in the finest sterling silver by talented Israeli artisans. Because Roman Glass is so ancient, each piece varies slightly in texture and appearance, making every piece of Roman Glass jewelry unique and special. Care instructions: avoid water, polish with a soft cloth. Finished with french wire backings. Measures 1.25 x .5 in.
