You know something is special when it's able to overshadow the likes of beautiful Italian canals, 500-year old churches, and the artwork of Giovanni Bellini to become the main attraction in town. But that's just how incredible Murano glass is. So if you visit the small Italian island, check out the churches, and take a trip along one of the canals, but most importantly leave yourself plenty of time to peruse the shops of the legendary glassmakers. And if you can't make the trip, why not let Stauer bring the amazing glass to you? I'm talking about the genuine Murano glass of our Donato Necklace.
Murano glass has been crafted on this small island for literally hundreds of years by skilled artisans using techniques that have remained unchanged since the 13th century. The Donato upholds that tradition beautifully, combining over 50 genuine hand-crafted icy blue Murano glass beads with intricately detailed gold-layered spacers that stretch the entire 18" length of the piece. The matching post-back earrings and bracelet make for a striking combination in Italian blue.
