Murano Glass Jewelry

Murano glass is some of the finest glass produced in the world. Crafted in Italy, Murano glass is known for cream of the crop, hand blown glass. It can be found in many jewelry pieces. You can discover Murano glass in earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

The Murano glass making began in the late 1800’s, in Venice Italy, and continues to this day. It is hand blown, and often has a signature identifying it. Don’t be fooled. Not all Murano glass is signed. Some of the older pieces have not been signed.

Murano glass will say that it was made in Venice, or made in Italy. It won’t say made in Murano. If you see a piece that says made in Murano, you are looking at a counterfeit.

Sometimes nothing will be written on the piece, particularly in older glass pieces.

One way to identify Murano glass is by noting that it is always hand blown. You won’t find seams. You will often find specks of gold flakes in Murano Glass. Look for bubbles and irregularities. If it’s too perfect, it’s probably a counterfeit, or mass produced.

Murano glass can run into thousands of dollars. Look for bargains at estate sales, and vintage stores.

Murano glass jewelry is a high quality treasure that can be passed down from one generation to the next.

I have been buying and selling vintage and antique jewelry for about 7 years. Mostly on ebay. I like unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry and prefer old over new. Vintage jewelry is a little like me, not so easy to fit in a box.
I have a masters degree in social work and practiced for 15 years in an outpatient community mental health center. . I have innovated a couple of products. Own rental property and managed it for years. I have bought and sold a variety of products in my life time, and currently my focus is on vintage Jewelery. I suppose it's easier then sitting home knitting a sweater.
