ROMAE was created by two jewelry enthusiasts, Cris and Elena, who are also mother and daughter. Cris is a classical archaeologist and museum professional who lives in Rome, Italy, and who has been working with Roman artifacts for over 20 years. She has always been particularly struck by the beauty and elegance of Roman jewelry, and convinced that the ancient designs would be as popular today as they were back then. She has dreamed of making this collection for many years, and is thrilled to finally bring her vision of Roman-inspired jewelry to the public. Elena is an artist and entrepreneur who has spent much of her life in Italy. She has designed her own collection of Roman-inspired jewelry with a modern twist. Our creative team also includes the incredibly talented Pegah and Waqas, who assist in making the designs become a reality.
Each of the pieces in our main collection is carefully designed and modeled after an original piece of ancient Roman jewelry, and is lovingly crafted in Rome. Certain pieces in our collection are particularly special, as proceeds from their sales are donated to charitable causes. The charities involved are outlined on the individual product pages.
ROMAE Jewelry. From Rome, with love!
