An exquisite vintage circa 1950-60s Italian “Wedding Cake” and glass beads necklace!
The main beads are pretty translucent rose pink colored glass, accented with bronze glass saucer shaped beads.
The necklace features seven Venetian “Wedding Cake” glass or Fiorato, handcrafted in pink, blue, white and yellow colors with golden and copper splashes inside.
The necklace is strung on pink thread.

More facts about this necklace:

- Hand knotted with gold-plated “copetta” (bead caps) surrounding each bead and a barrel clasp;
- Made on the island of Murano in Venice Italy;
- There are 7 10mm (approximately 1/2 inch) Fiorato (Wedding Cake) Murano Glass highlight beads;
- The necklace is 26 inches (66 cm) long

The Fiorato (Wedding Cake) beads are very special: each is handmade in the exact manner in which it was first created during the Renaissance in Fifteen Century Venice.
The glass artisan twirls molten glass unto a hand-held copper wire and then skillfully decorates the resulting bead with six individual fused layers of “Adventurina” or Gold-tone (gold and copper dust imbedded in glass) and three further applique layers of delicate pink swirl roses and multi-color flowers.

This piece of jewelry is special due to its historical value, best-world craftsmanship, and stunning delicate beauty and strengths. The necklace looks like new, is very shiny, flexible and absolutely gorgeous!
This precious piece of art is in EXCELLENT vintage condition...no chips on any of the beads and the brass is bright and beautiful..STUNNING!!!
