Splendor in the glass
Celebrate the timeless wonder of Murano glass
For more than 1,500 years, Venice’s Murano islands have produced some of the most astounding works of glass the world has ever seen. From the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, it was Europe’s glassmaking center, racking up a long list of innovations and artistic contributions. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Murano would become the epicenter of Europe’s glassmaking elite.
With Venice dominating trade in the Mediterranean Sea, a class of wealthy merchants was created, establishing a demand for glass innovations. Among other types of glass, Venice would create cristallo, a nearly transparent glass that was considered the finest in the world.
We’ve brought you this beautiful art in the form of the Murano Splendore Pendant. Handcrafted by a skilled Italian craftsman, this pendant represents the murrine style, exhibiting flecks of gold leaf among rich jewel tone colors.
The glass innovations of Venice have awed the art world for generations. With the Murano Splendore Pendant, you can enjoy your own trip to Italy without the airfare.
