Venetian Murano Glass Necklaces

It takes true talent to elevate a humble material into an art form, and that's what Murano's magnificent glassmakers do. Murano, an island just off the Venetian coast, is world-renowned for its stunning art glass creations. You can wear a piece of this masterful craftsmanship in the form of Murano glass jewellery. Every piece is subtly different because it's the product of an individual artisan's expertise; every swirl, whorl or floral pattern is unique. Venetian glass jewellery is still hand-crafted today just as it was when Leonardo da Vinci worked for the Medici family. The artistry of Murano glass jewellery makes an elegant foil for your own signature style.

One of the hallmarks of fine Italian glass is its brilliant colour. During the Renaissance, these craftsmen produced colours for stained glass windows that no one else could match. While the demand for stained glass has lessened, Murano's artisans still make art glass in brilliant colours and variegated finishes fit for fine jewellery.


Murano Glass Earrings

Make the most of the Venetian glass trade's gorgeous colours with a pair of Murano glass earrings in vibrant jewel tones touched with gold leaf or a beaded necklace in a bouquet of complementary colours. Every piece of Venetian glass jewellery is an original, and like all original works of art, it deserves a suitable frame.


Murano Glass Pendants

Murano glass pendants are large enough to showcase the glassmaker's art at its finest. Wear art glass pendants with neutral hues or against your skin; think of them as a vivid painting on a gallery wall. They're the perfect accent for an otherwise plain top in a solid colour or for simplified silhouettes. Murano glass necklaces work equally well on a satin ribbon that falls just to your collarbone or with a longer chain as a more substantial accent. Because they come in so many shapes and colours, a suite of Murano glass pendants can easily become your go-to jewellery wardrobe for every occasion. 

While other natural materials dictate their form to the jewelcrafter, glass allows the maker complete control over the medium. Natural amber, jade, carnelian and coral are beautiful in their own right, but in the hands of a talented Venetian glassmaker, these gemstones' rich colours take on new beauty in glass when combined with flakes of gold and silver or painted patterns. Even without painting or gilding, the transparency of glass lends it a special beauty. Murano glass earrings make the most of this luminous quality in drops that filter light from all sides and transmit it in brilliant colour.
