Description
Since its earliest invention, glass was popular for jewelry and ornament. Its translucent brilliance attracted the eye, while its rich colors imitated rarer and more costly gems. This lovely bracelet dates to the Roman period, when the art of ancient glassmaking was at its height. Its narrow size indicates it was worn by a child. Utterly simple, it nonetheless conveys the impression of timeless style and beauty. It is colored an exquisite green, as if carved from emerald or peridot. We can imagine the person whose wrist it adorned long ago delighting in its charms as we still do today. - (GF.0254)
