Not so long ago only the rich could afford to purchase and enjoy a piece of authentic Murano Glass. Today, the breathtakingly beautiful, hand-made pieces of authentic murano glass reach people on all five continents.

700+ year-old, handmade Murano glass techniques and designs are still strictly followed by the skillfull masters on the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon. Each piece is unique - small or large, inexpensive or worth thousands of dollars. Take a quick look at this amazing murano necklace brought to you by

Part of GlassOfVenice murano necklaces offering, this piece of exquisite workmanship stands out and creates truly royal impression.

Unspoilt by motor vehicles, the Murano island is just 10 minutes away from Venice by boat ("Vaporetto"). The island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Glass makers were confined to the island for centuries to keep them isolated from the world outside but these days tourists arrive themselves to see how Murano glass is still made in the workshops on the island.

Murano glass industry, thriving through the centuries, proves again today that, just like centuries ago, the tight community of glass workers is commited to carrying their craft through generations despite all changes that affect them. Like diamonds, Murano glass is there to stay forever.

I just saw a documentary on Murano glass from Venice yesterday. How Ironic! I think my wife has some new ideas for gifts!
Thanks Colin!
