Murano takes the stage
The Arlecchino Murano Necklace delivers thousands of years of uniquely Italian history and beauty
These earrings combine the two great Italian traditions of Murano glass and the Harlequin. Murano glassmaking originates 1,500 years ago in Venice, being moved to nearby Murano in 1291. It’s the finest in the world because the art form of mixing Murano with gold has been passed down from generation to generation for a millennium and a half.
The Arlecchino, known in English as the Harlequin, was a beloved comic character in Italian Commedia dell’arte, an early form of professional theatre. The Harlequin entertained the crowds with nimble, lighthearted, and quick-witted performances, wearing a costume of bright and colorful checkered rhombus shapes.
The Arlecchino Murano Earrings bring these two great traditions together. Genuinely exquisite Murano glass in an array of colors and in checkered shapes resembling the Harlequin’s costume. These shapes are decorated with 24k gold to add an extra glow of genuine luxury befitting two such fine and storied pieces of Italian cultural heritage.
With thousands of years of history, exquisite artistry, nods to Italian theatrical culture, and genuine 24k gold, you might expect the Arlecchino Murano Earrings to cost a small fortune. But we operate like the Harlequin himself, trying our best to be nimble and inventive, allowing us to give these earrings a price that steals the show.
