Tying modern culture to the ancient world is one of the hallmarks of our brand, and one of the ideals of our company: connecting humanity across the ages.

Our jewelry is inspired by ancient examples found in archaeological excavations across the world. Each piece is crafted with love and care, and with a desire to recall the elegance and eternal appeal of the original. With our own designs, we are happy to make ancient jewelry current, fashionable, and available, once again.

ROMAE Jewelry. Our jewelry is timeless.

One site - two stores

Something for everyone

Ancient jewelry is spectacular, and it has so many admirers. We want our jewelry to be accessible to everyone, so we have created two separate jewelry lines. ROMAE Jewelry is our traditional boutique line, and AMOR~ROMAE is our popular line.

AMOR~ROMAE is our collection of contemporary classical-inspired jewelry that is exciting and perfect for everyday wear. Each piece is available in your choice of 925 Sterling Silver, or "Yellow" Silver, a mixture of silver and brass that has the appearance of yellow gold.

ROMAE is our traditional luxury collection of timeless ancient-inspired jewelry. These are the pieces fashioned in 14K, 18K, or 22K yellow gold, and feature semi-precious and precious stones. We are happy to personalize your jewelry with a different stone or metal - just ask!

Perfect. For You.

ROMAE jewelry is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, such as a graduation, anniversary or birthday. Of the many designs available in our collection, we are especially proud of the jewelry that may be personalized with initials, a phrase, or a signet design of your choice. All of our rings, too, may be engraved with special dates and messages on the interior. We look forward to personalizing your jewelry!

Every piece of jewelry that we make receives the same fine crafting and specialized attention, and is stamped with the ROMAE  Jewelry logo on the interior. Your jewelry will also arrive with a card providing details about the original piece of ancient jewelry that has inspired our creation, so that you may know its long history.
