Exclusive jewellery, made by Venetian artisans
Murano, a series of islands in the Venetian Lagoon, has been a centre for glassmaking since 1291, when the Venetian Republic ordered glassmakers to move their foundries there. Using centuries-old techniques, the artisans of Murano create everything from contemporary art to chandeliers - and jewellery - and have earned a worldwide reputation for design and craftsmanship.
Just launched exclusively online Murano 1291 is a fabulous and luxurious collection of jewellery which embodies the quality and design of Murano glass in its most beautiful form. All of the pieces have been hand made on the islands and can be worn day or night.
Each glass bead is treated as a precious stone. Their Gold Leaf Elements rings, such as the Maestro Ring, feature 18 carat gold, shot through the smooth glass to give the piece a sense of depth and shine. This fine gold will remain bright and beautiful for many years to come.
The glass blowers’ art is best illustrated by these delicate Sponged Tear Drop Earrings. Each pendular earring is formed from iridescent aqua blue glass, and then coated in a luscious 18ct yellow gold vermeil. They’re sure to be admired on that special night out!
If you’re a lover of modern art, then you’ll be drawn to this Sterling Silver Chain Drop Pendant Necklace, which is inspired by the artist Miro. There are matching Drop Hook Earrings, which are perfect for work or that early evening cocktail.
Unique in design, Murano 1291 is more than just a piece of jewellery; it’s a work of art.
