Did you know the popularity of bracelets dates back to Roman times?
Stones and glass were often used in Roman bracelets. Gemstones were commonly found set in eyes. Open bands were cut to represent a row of ivy and entwined with pearls. Many of the leaf and berry bracelets were heavily adorned with decorative glass. The wealthier women could be seen wearing bracelets layered in bezel set emeralds.
