Roman jewellery was prized in ancient times as it is today by customers and collectors who value beautiful work. Not only did the Romans themselves prize Roman craftsmanship, but it was also valued by the people across the Roman Empire and tribes whose territories bordered the Roman Empire. Many pieces of Roman jewellery have been found by archaeologists in modern times, all around the world but also in East Sussex, which was a heavily Romanised area at the height of the Roman Empire.
Roman jewellery was commonly made of precious materials. Gold was a popular choice because it was a sign of wealth and influence. Other jewellery was made from silver or bronze, both of which were prized for their value. Some Roman jewellery was designed using the ornate patterns of the metalwork, but it was common to decorate the jewellery with precious stones. One of the most popular choices, which is still valued today, was pearls. Pearls had great value, partly because they look so good, but also because they were hard to obtain. Pearls had to be recovered from the seabed, which meant that highly experienced divers had to make a free dive, without any breathing apparatus, to find the molluscs that contained the best pearls. As well as pearls, other precious stones were popular in jewellery. An example of these are rubies and amethysts, as well as turquoise and lapis lazuli.
