As the lovely poem so aptly describes:

My heart is full now and content

I know now what God sent

Love is you."

What is Murano Glass?

On the coast of the Adrianic Sea, on the Northeastern coast of Italy, is a famous group of islands called Murano. It sits on the lagoon of Venice is across from the city of Venice which is the capital of the Veneto region.

Venice as you know is a world-renowned place is known for its shoreline, architecture, canals and romance. Venice has been called by the New York Time, "undoubtedly the most beautiful city ever built by man". What is fascinating in this romantic region of the world is the origin of one of the most beautiful, inventive type of jewelry. A type of jewelry made of glass as only this unique place in the world could ever envision and craft.

For you see, Murano may be a place but it is also the namesake of Murano glass jewelry.

It has a fascinating history that dates back before 1291. Yes, that is not a typo, this specialized production of glass was so coveted that some speculate leglislation was enacted to ban this type of glass from Venice and isolated the production only in the city Murano not because of fire safety concerns but because of the fear of robbery of the technology and craft by foreigners.

"In fact, the glassblowers became virtual prisoners on Murano, insulated from any contacts who might divulge their production secrets to potential competitors abroad. Venetian--or Murano--glassmaking became the leading source for fine glass in Europe and a major source of trading income for the Republic of Venice." source:http://www.boglewood.com/murano/history.html

Murano Glass Survives the Ages

Murano glass continues to be highly valued art in the form of decorative pieces such as mirror and vases but also jewelry.

Because Murano is world-renowned for its proprietary glass making craftsmen, Murano is nicknamed the "island of glass".

While glass making may have begun sometime in the 8th century, the proprietary development of this specific type of glass, which we now commonly call Murano was crafted when the ports were opened and the area became the epicenter of glass art.

Murano held a monopoly on the specific production until about the 1600's when Europeans learned the proprietary skills and started duplicating this fine glass art.

Interestingly, during the 1400's it was stated that these unique artisans were banned from leaving the Republic. Yes, that sentence is correct the Republic banned their citizens from leaving and going abroad - that fact highlights the commercial value of this finely handcrafted artisan skill.

Familiarity with the Murano Glass Sea Horses

Everyone has seen the sea horses made of Murano glass. The two artful mediums seem to go seamlessly hand in hand - the graceful seahorse with its many curves is further accentuated with the beautiful swirls of Murano glass.

So what makes Venetiaurum proprietary and different from Murano glass? Well, words cannot do this specialized art form create. Venetiaurum takes Murano glass into a new realm. A realm of further depth and mystery, a realm of couture. Yes, Venetiaurum makes the beautiful Murano glass look provincial. Don't believe me? See and judge for yourself.

Other Common Murano Pieces of Jewelry

Besides the sea horse, there is another common piece of jewelry where you will see literally thousands of different designs and color combinations. These pieces often hit the marketplace from China and are sized and crafted in the Murano glass style but with fit and finish in European beads commonly referred to by its patented name Pandora. The glass beads are popular for its variety of designs and color and it charm like interchangeability.

For all the many beads and charms I have cruised the Internet for, I have yet to see a European bead in the grace and elegance of Venetiaurum design. And then, I jump to the website Venetiaurum.it and lo and behold - what do they now carry - but of course, the beloved European bead! Somehow they have labelled this collection - Magic Reflections. Reflection of the current style trend of the popular bead with its threaded and interchangeable beads? I don't read Italian so I am sorry to report if the beads are threaded. If you can add to this discussion, please leave comments below and I will be happy to update this section.

      I never really knew what it was. I knew it was glass, I assumed Italian but had no idea. See how little the Americans really know! I really must get out more! I do hope to travel to Italy someday soon.

      I have a ring made out of Murano glass that I purchased at an Italian Expo in Houston several years ago. Both types of glass are beautiful in my opinion. Interesting reading about them!
