Murano Glass Earrings - Pieces Of Art For Your Ears Only

Author : Kevin Grinberg

Diamonds are girls' best friends, but glass earrings are very good friends too. Nothing like a pair of effervescent gold speckled Murano glass earrings to make a girl shine at any party.

Murano glass makers have been making glass jewelry for almost thousand years. For many centuries, beautiful, almost spectral glass orbs combined with gold or silver were decorating ears of European royalty. Glass making was so expensive that sometimes glass earrings coming from Murano glass artists cost more than that made of precious stones.

There are many glass making techniques that Murano glass makers use to make magnificent pieces of glass art. But, complex glass making techniques really shine when used to make small, exquisite pieces of jewelry like earrings. Each Murano glass earring is made by hand. Each is treated as a piece of art, in the ancient tradition of Murano glass making.

There are Murano glass earrings for any taste: aquamarine cubes with gold studs, ruby red marbles speckled with gold, rainbow swirls of color and light. Some are irresistibly quirky and whimsical, others are elegant and translucent, but all have one thing in common: they have that unique touch of Venetian artistic tradition.

Some Murano glass earrings are complex and decorative and resemble Venetian palazzos, others are playful like the annual carnival in Venice. It is up to you to choose the right pair, just for you.

Murano glass earrings work wonderfully with elegant evening gowns, with their play of light and color. They look lovely with your business suit, matching the color of your silk blouse. There are Murano earrings that are long and swirling, perfect for girls with long necks and hair piled up, and there are others, small and delicate, that look great with short hair and high cheekbones.

If you are red-haired, the best kind of Murano glass earrings would be the cobalt blue orbs with gold specks floating inside, or jade cubes on golden hooks. Dark-haired beauties would do best to choose brilliant red and flirty Millefiori earrings.

The biggest problem in choosing a perfect pair of Murano glass earrings is choosing only one, when there are so many that are so hard to resist. There is something so tantalizing in those tiny pieces of brilliant glass that almost traps light and reflects it in thousand colors. You can almost see the light of Venetian bay and gardens of Italy reflected in pieces of glass hanging on golden hooks or studs.

It is not only the beauty and uniqueness of Murano glass earrings that is making them so famous and desired all over the world. It is a sense of tradition and history that each of these hand-made pieces of jewelry carry with them, a gift from Murano artists and hot furnaces full of molten glass, just for you.

When buying Murano glass earrings, do not settle for cheap copies. Make sure that you are getting them from reputable retailers who work directly with Murano glass makers. True Murano glass earrings come with a proof of authenticity, to show you that you are getting a real piece of art, in the thousand year old tradition.
