Here is a collection of Roman jewelry that I have tried to recreate. Unfortunately, most of the original pieces went through auction houses (as the shiny jewelry tends to) and they specified that use of photos would violate copyright law. Some pictures, when clicked, will bring you to the original source.

This shape (polygonal) of Cornelian is seen is several examples (here, here, here[?], and here) from jewelry in the early part of the Empire.


Roman Amethyst, Gold, and Chalcedony Earrings

The original, dated to the 1st century CE had jade, I used chalcedony as a replacement. Chalcedony was common to the time period.


Roman Inspired Laurel Necklace

Based on a 1st century CE – 1st century Ce Amethyst and gold Roman necklace.


Roman Amethyst, Beryl, and Gold Necklace

The bottom necklace is based on a 2nd -3rd century CE Roman necklace composed of green beryl, amethyst, and glass spacers with gold leaf.


Amethyst Melon Beads and Gold Necklace

The original, dated to the 1st – 2nd century CE was a graduated amethyst melon bead and gold spacer Roman necklace. Note that the original spacers were wider. Gold filled were used in their place and graduated amethyst melon beads can be found but are exorbitantly expensive.
