History: Glass Jewelry dates all the way back 2000+ years to the ancient Romans (duh), but is now gaining popularity again as it is being unearthed and reborn into the world's most unique jewelry. Read on to learn more about this historical trend.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

The word "filigree" comes from the Latin words "filum," meaning "thread," and "granum," meaning "grain." Filigree jewellery has been made for centuries, and its history can be traced back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The earliest known examples of filigree jewellery date back to the Middle East around 3,000 BC.
