One masterpiece deserves another. The inspiration behind our latest Murano creation came from one of the most famous paintings in the history of art. “The Kiss” depicting a pair of lovers united through a kiss, is one of Austrian artist Gustav Klimt’s most popular paintings. It is the final painting of Klimt’s Gold Period, during which he incorporated gold leaf into his works.
Considering the spectacular combination of colors, patterns and gold leafing, we knew where we had to go... to the Island of Murano, where glass artisans have been creating the most exquisite glass art in the world for over 700 years. The Il Bacio Murano Pendant takes all that is beautiful from Klimt’s masterpiece (including gold leaf touches) and infuses it into a miniature portraiture of handspun Murano.
Modern and endlessly chic, yet with the timeless allure that can only be achieved through Murano artistry, this is a piece destined to become a prized favorite in her collection. Comes suspended from a triple-strand sterling silver chain finished in gold that showcases this beauty like the splendid exhibit it is.
