Murano Glass Ring








These gorgeous solid glass rings come from Murano, a group of Italian islands world-famous for their beautiful glass art. Glassmaking began there in the 8th century; by the 13th century, Murano artisans were virtually isolated on the islands to safeguard their special technique from others! The dome design of these rings is reminiscent of those classic Lalique cabochon rings — but you don't have to spend $200 to own one of these!
