Wear the colors of Italy's legendary regatta
Made in Italy
I recently attended a party in Venice that’s been going for more than 500 years. The Regata Storica started in 1489, when the beautiful Caterina Cornaro, wife of the King of Cyprus, renounced her Cypriot throne in favor of Venice. The people of Venice welcomed her with a parade of elaborately-decorated gondolas, in a rainbow of popping colors. Every year since, the spirit of 1489 is recaptured in those world-famous canals when the famous Regata is repeated.
Our Cornaro Necklace is the essence of Venice, with the revelry of the Regata channeled into one perfect piece of jewelry. The array of colors recalls the Regata itself, and the beads of Murano glass are the only thing as historic and charming and uniquely Venice as those gondolas. The 59 magnificent, multicolored beads on the Cornaro Necklace were handmade by the famous Murano glassmakers, where the proud Venetian tradition has been passed down from generation to generation, dating back to before the city threw that first famous party for Caterina.
Thanks to the Regata, I’m now a regular visitor to Venice and have made some great contacts, which is how I’ve found and negotiated the best possible price on the highest quality Murano glass available. And now I’m excited to offer Stauer customers the chance to share in the spirit of the Regata. Wearing the Cornaro Necklace is the next best thing to gliding through ancient canals in a gondola, and will add a brightly-colored air of sophistication to your day.

The golden years.
My 88 yr. old boyfriend presented me with the cornaro murano necklace today. It is around my 84 yr. old
neck right now. I love it very much and am so happy
that he gave it to me. He also gave me a beautiful
card with some sweet words in it too.These golden
years are wonderful.
Everyone admires this and I love it but it was advertised as being 28" and was only 25". A change of plan I was told but I see it is still being offered in the magazine as 28" but online it's 25". Very misleading but 25" is ok.
At first this necklace seemed so small in relation to the size it appeared in the picture. I am sure they enlarged it to show the detail. And the detail is amazing. I love the way this feels when I wear it. I add a 14k long necklace with it and all of those beautiful gold flecks in the glass beads stand out. I love wearing it on a solid color.

Wife loves it
The colors of the beads make it a matching accessory for any wardrobe.
She received a complement on the top worn many times previously with no mention. We attributed the attention given to the addition of the necklace. This occurred Within 30 minutes after donning the necklace. Thank you.
Very beautiful necklace and bracelet! The length for the necklace was advertised as 28" and I was very disappointed that it was only 25". I see now that others were also mislead. In the most recent catalog I received days ago it is still being described as 28". I decided to keep it because it is so pretty, but I will add a 3" extender to get more length.
Received this necklace and matching bracelet for Valentines Day from my husband. He ordered it from an ad in a magazine. Haven't wore it yet but know it will look lovely with any plain color. Is very pretty and I'm sure it will be my favorite "go to" piece of jewelry.
