These exquisite earrings are the most popular ones within our extensive selection of Murano Glass Earrings. Their multi-color design represents the height of Murano Glass craftsmanship from the best artisans in Venice, Italy. Each pair of earrings is unique and features a random pattern of round mosaic-like glass pieces with colorful patterns of flowers and geometric shapes. Pair them with a Millefiori pendant in sterling silver frame from our extensive Millefiori pendants collection for a perfectly coordinated look, which evokes the stylish elegance of Venice.
  • Measurements: The round dangling part of the earring measures 3/8 inch in diameter.
  • The metal used in the ear hooks and the frame is Italian .925 sterling silver.
  • These Murano Glass Millefiori earrings come with an attractive velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.
  • By nature of the Millefiori glass-making technique used to create these earrings, no two earrings will be exactly the same as the design is always random. However, the two earrings within a pair will always have a consistent look and color pattern.

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
