What Is Ancient Glass Jewelry?
Ancient glass refers to glass made from sand quartz. We call it ancient because this is the type of glass that ancient societies used. One such society was the Roman Empire.
So, ancient glass jewelry is jewelry made from ancient sand quartz glass. At Roma Designer Jewelry, we create each of our pieces out of shards of glass recovered from archeological digs in Rome.
That means our jewelry is not just sustainable. It is also beautiful and 100% unique. Each piece carries with it a story that dates thousands of years back to the very beginnings of human society.
Is Glass Jewelry Trending in 2022?
Yes! According to Vogue, glass jewelry is one of the main jewelry trends to watch this year. In fact, some style experts are calling glass jewels the new pearls!
Whether clear or colorful, Vogue recommends pairing your glass jewelry with swimwear, stacked with other glass and metal pieces, or paired with your favorite casual attire.
What Styles Look Good With Glass Jewelry?
Glass jewelry is incredibly versatile. You can wear your glass items with pared-down looks and dress them up with business casual clothes or even semi-formal attire.
But hands down, these are our favorite styles to wear with ancient Roman glass jewelry.
Since glass jewelry is trending in 2022, it makes sense to pair your glass necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings with other trendy items. According to InStyle, this season's top fashion trends include:
- Luxurious leather
- Power suits
- Faux fur coats
- Statement boots
- Preppy and plaid
- Vintage everything
- Sheer fabrics
- Oversized blazers
The artisanal quality of handmade glass jewelry would pair especially well with vintage looks. But these pieces would also offer the perfect contrast with a crisp and buttoned-up power suit.
With its natural and beachy vibes, glass jewelry pairs perfectly with the bohemian style. Imagine pairing your glass earrings with a one-piece and a wide-brimmed hat for a day at the beach. Perfection!
Though boho style is usually associated with spring and summer, you can also transition it into the cooler months. Pair pants under flowy dresses, chunky sweaters over maxi skirts, and fringed jackets with bell-bottom jeans.
No matter which of these outfit combos you choose, your glass jewelry will fit right in. Try stacking multiple glass bangles and rings. You can also mix and match various lengths of necklaces for a layered look.
The best thing about glass jewelry is that it is timeless. Your glass jewelry items may be trendy in 2022. But they will also be in style for many, many years to come.
That means you can pair your favorite glass pieces with your favorite classic staples. Classic style never goes out of fashion, as evidenced by ever-stylish ladies like Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Blake Lively.
Some of the components of the classic style include:
- Traditional prints
- Minimalistic colors
- Simple and clean lines
- Limited details
- Understated elegance
May we recommend pairing your Roma glass jewels with trousers, a soft and streamlined turtleneck, and a classic trenchcoat? You will look timeless and elegant, no matter the occasion.
