Fun Fact

Glass, largely produced in ancient Rome since the late 1st century, also reached the Korean peninsula through the Silk Road, the ancient global trade route.

Description

An enormous amount of beaded strings and necklaces were excavated from Silla tomb sites. Glass, largely produced in ancient Rome since the late 1st century, also reached the Korean peninsula through the Silk Road, the ancient global trade route. Yet soda glass started to be produced in the Silla terrirory as early as the 2nd century. Comprised of glass beads, comma-shaped jades, and silver bands, this is an excellent example of chest lace.
