Right throughout the history of la Serenissima (the Republic of Venice), the Venetian woman was fortunate. While she did not directly take part in political or government activities, her importance and dignity was nonetheless recognised. She enjoyed a certain independence, and was lavished with the richest and most magnificent jewels.
Travellers to Venice were struck by such beauty, such luxury, quality and elegance…
Today, giving a piece of jewellery in Murano glass to a woman is a way to celebrate her uniqueness and importance.
Besides traditional creations there are many decidedly contemporary solutions, designed and developed in collaboration with brilliant international designers from different backgrounds. Traditional forms, balances and combinations are borrowed and reinvented, reinterpreted and reassembled to create necklaces that accentuate the wearer’s verve and attention to quality.

The tumbling technique
To make the surface perfectly even, smooth and shiny, and to accentuate the beauty of the details, beads and pendants are kept immersed for seven days and seven nights in rotating oak barrels containing special substances: the smoothing and polishing solution that is inside has always been and still is a company secret today.
