Object Description

A restrung Ancient Roman necklace composed of circular and cylindrical black glass beads. Most beads are decorated with angular etchings which adds a satisfying array of textures in combination with varying shapes of the beads. The beads are arranged in graduating size, with larger beads arranged centrally toward a pendant composed of three beads, creating a pleasing balance. Such necklaces testify to the popularity of glass ornaments across the Roman Empire. The necklace finishes with a modern silver clasp (please be aware the clasp has not been professionally tied).

Date: Circa 1st – 3rd Century AD
