Roman glass is a rare material discovered in archaeological excavations around Israel. Glass was once a prized commodity reserved for royalty and the wealthy, but became increasingly common throughout the Roman Empire. Israel is one of the few places in the world where geological and climatic conditions coincide to enable the formation of what we call Roman Glass. Over time, the buried glass shards absorb minerals from the surrounding soil, and the soil’s unique mineral content creates an exquisite ‘patina’ – the delicate coloring of this precious material.
With a career spanning five decades, Rafael is one of Israel’s most celebrated artisan jewelry designers. Descended from personal jewelers to Yemen’s royal family, his work combines contemporary styling and modern design with the ancient art of filigree to create beautiful, timeless masterpieces. Inlaid with delicate Roman Glass, shimmering Eilat stone and other precious stones, each piece boasts a unique finish.
