Faceted to reflect the light, these green glass beads may have imitated emerald. That precious gem, mined in the deserts of Egypt during classical times, was only available to the noble and wealthy. As early as the Bronze Age, jewelers had learned to fashion glass into exquisite facsimiles of rare gems. There is no denying that these jewels have elegance and style, and that time has lent their simple glass preciousness beyond its intrinsic value. In the pale radiance of these earrings, we sense the beauty of the woman they adorned so long ago. - (SJ.0217)
