Roman Glass Jewelry Information
Do not get Roman Glass jewelry wet. The weathering of the glass over time and the glass composition create the beautiful iridescence (the shimmering rainbow-like colors) and light encrustation of the surface of the glass. If the glass gets wet, the encrustation on the surface of the glass will deteriorate and it will no longer have the beautiful iridescence which makes it so desirable as a striking piece of jewelry.
The Roman Glass itself does not need cleaning. Any change that may occur to the piece of Roman Glass is a natural reaction to the environment. It is a natural process.
Sterling Silver settings need to be cleaned. The sterling SILVER PENDANTS should be cleaned using a dry silver cloth. No chemicals or detergents should be used as it might get on the ancient glass.
