Abstract:

Glass rings are typical feminine jewellery of the La Tène Period, used as armbands, bracelets and rings. At present count, there are 87 localities in Slovak territory which have yielded altogether 192 bracelets (fragments and whole pieces) and four ring beads (Fig. 1). With the exception of early bracelets of various hues of green and light blue and one brown late La Tène Period fragment, cobalt blue, “Celtic blue” and its hues are the prevailing colour. Several decoration techniques are in evidence on these glass rings. The correspondence of certain types with a given decoration can point to the existence of a local workshop
