In ancient Rome, fashion developed more than in Greece. The same was true of jewellery. Precious stones were very popular with the ladies; the most popular were emeralds. A big surprise for modern women may be the fact that diamonds appeared in these areas for the first time. In addition, stones such as agate, garnet, yarrow, and aquamarine were used to make jewellery.

Although (and in the modern world) there were also fakes made of two-colour glass. Amber was also popular. The largest expedition for this stone was organized during the reign of Nero.
