Item # : CF1200_4
These Murano Glass cufflinks are sophisticated and unique, just the thing for a modern man who is ready to conquer everyday challenges in style. Handcrafted by experienced Murano Glass masters, the cufflinks project European elegance with their rich colors and silver foil infused in the glass for subdued shimmer.
Measurements: Each cufflink measures just under 3/4 inch in diameter. These Murano cufflinks come with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.
Due to the glass-making technique used to make these cufflinks entirely by hand, there are always some variations of colors and patterns and no two are exactly alike. This is not a defect but the very feature that distinguishes handcrafted Murano Glass.

Infusing silver leaf in Murano Glass has been one of the secrets of Venetian glass-makers for centuries, allowing them to create luminous beautiful glass pieces that shimmer and glow from within. More recently Murano artisans have been creating jewelry with Murano Glass beads lined with silver leaf. To create each bead the master wraps a very thin layer of genuine silver leaf around the glass base under a flame, and then puts a layer of clear or colored glass on top. The silver-lined Murano Glass bead is then put into a special annealing camera, after which it is ready to be strung onto a necklace, a bracelet, or used to create earrings, or another jewelry piece. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that every bead was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
