Save Money, The Venetian Way
“No white nor red was ever seen, So am’rous as this lovely green.”
— Andrew Marvell’s “The Garden”
Anyone who has tended a garden knows the joy of watching the first spring bulbs emerge. One day the outdoors is all dry grasses and bare trees; the next there are crocuses and daffodils popping up everywhere and the branches overhead are aglow with fresh leaves. Andrew Marvell understood mankind’s innate need for green when he penned his classic poem “The Garden,” a 17th-century ode to natural beauty. And Italy’s famed glass artisans understood that same need when they designed the Garden Green Murano Collection.
Off the coast of Venice lies the island of Murano, where for 700 years, an elite community of creators has set the world standard for glassmaking. Using time-honed techniques, they pour care and attention into every piece, from the grandest chandelier to the most delicate glass bead. Here, 68 of those beads combine to form a jewelry set of rich, verdant green reminiscent of a garden in full flush. Complete with yellow gold-finished settings, they yield a sophisticatedly simple ensemble sure to complement any woman’s beauty.
Normally jewelry of this pedigree commands top dollar. But because Stauer is one of the world’s largest buyers of Murano glass, we’re able to offer these pieces for an exceptional price for the set. Because we know you can never have enough green in your world — or in your wallet.
