Over centuries, they have been textured and colored by the forces of wind and weather. Each piece not only bears the marks of its past life as a household or temple object but also exhibits the influence of the earth in which it rested before being transformed into a distinctive accent.
The designs for these jewels are based on artifacts and drawings discovered during the archaeological digs. They draw inspiration from the rich history and culture of the Roman Empire.
