During the Roman Republic, laws aimed at limiting the ostentatious display of personal wealth meant that Roman women wore very little gold jewelry. In the imperial period after 27 B.C., however, the wearing of lavish jewelry gained acceptance. To satisfy this new Roman market, many goldsmiths migrated from established jewelry-making cities such as Alexandria and Antioch to work in Rome.
Jewelry styles were consequently copied throughout the empire as well-to-do provincials sought to follow fashions set in the imperial capital; some of these Roman jewelry styles were very long-lived.
