Roman Sculpture

Part of our ancient jewelry collection - the first true Roman jewelry wasn't produced until the beginning of the Imperial period, 27 BC, with the accession of Augustus as Emperor. As the adaption of mining techniques advanced, Roman jewelry-making blossomed in the first three centuries A.D. Many different styles of Roman earrings were popular, and the fashion of the time preferred a bold, clean simplicity of design.
