Millefiori Pendants have been a tradition of Venetian Glass Jewelery for decades. Millefiori means thousand flowers in Italian and became named as a result of the small canes which create each piece. The canes are made in Murano in the same traditions of Murano glass for centuries. The Millefiori pendants are created by fusing small slices of the Effetre Moretti glass canes together creating the patterns. These authentic Murano jewelry pieces appear as small stain glass windows and are set in beautiful mountings. A Venetian jewelry tradition which was reintroduced in the 20th century by local craftspeople. The settings of each of these is either .925 sterling silver or gold plate over .925 sterling silver. As they are handmade, no two are ever exactly alike.
