• Handmade 100% Made in Italy
• Authentic Roman Glass 1st cent. AD
• Material: 20 Kt gilded Sterling Silver
This gilded silver pendant is made with an authentic Roman glass balsamarium (1st cent A- ampulla vitrea ) that was used from Romans to contain fragrant oils The use of sprinkling the body of perfumed oils was deeply rooted in everyday life...Pliny, the Roman writer and philosopher,lists them " among the most gradual things and the more dignified goods of life" .
During the Augustan age we have evident traces of an italian industry that had a production of great value.
This balsamarium is particularly beautiful because it has "luminescence", which forms inside the glass over many centuries!
All of our jewels are certified by certificate of authenticity attesting their Greek or Roman origin !
