When you put on this unique Venetian Glass ring and get ready to turn heads everywhere you go. The rich colors and unique pattern handcrafted by talented Murano Glass artisans pay tribute to the centuries-old traditions of fine decorative glass-making that made Murano Island world-famous. The chic mosaic design that makes this Venetian ring stand out is achieved with the use of complex and labor intensive Millefiori technique invented thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt. After creating thin glass canes with patterns inside, the artisans cut them into tiny mosaic pieces, then assemble the pieces in patterns and fuse them together in special furnaces. The result is a burst of colors and dazzling pattern that is a pleasure to look at and a joy to wear. Pair this Murano ring with a Millefiori pendant, earrings, hair clips and more from our extensive Millefiori collection for a perfectly coordinated look.
Measurements: The ring's central bead has a diameter of 1 inch and thickness of 3/8 inch. The band is silver-plated and adjustable to fit any finger size. The ring comes with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.

Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

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.
