Ancient Roman Glass Ring
Are you ready to own a piece of history? Imagine wearing something that existed 2,000 years ago! Roman glass has survived for centuries. The Roman Empire built an amazing civilization, with renowned artistic and technological achievements. At its peak, Rome controlled the entire Mediterranean Sea and largely oversaw the industrialization of glass-making roughly 2000 years ago. With the invention of new glass blowing techniques, common people could enjoy household glass items such as plates, bowls, and jars. In fact, the industrialization of glass-making is considered one of the Empire's greatest technological achievements. Roman glass was made when sand and nitrate were heated to extremely high temperatures. Then, glassmakers would add various metal oxides to give the glass its distinctive color.
