Details

These earrings have wonderful Venetian ca' d'oro style hearts of cobalt blue glass enclosing precious 24kt gold foil. Each bead is made by hand, and each is slightly different. The tube beads are made of dark blue goldstone, a man-made stone made of tiny pieces of copper suspended in opaque glass which is polished to a high sheen. I think it looks like the night sky. The two elements make an elegant combination perfect for a night out. These would make for a lovely romantic gift.

These earrings are very light in weight.

The earwires here are surgical steel French hooks and will not irritate most metal allergies. If you would like a different metal or prefer a different style such as a lever-back, contact me and I can easily switch them out for you.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Palazzo Santa Sofia in Venice was nicknamed the Ca' d'Oro, meaning "golden house." The term ca' d'oro was a reference to the gold leaf used to decorate the exterior of the palazzo, long ago worn away. Today, the term refers to a style of beads using gold or silver leaf suspended in richly colored Murano glass which call to mind the beautiful texture of the worn or crackled gilding and brilliant colors of the art and architecture of Venice.

Materials Used

Venetian handmade cobalt ca' d'oro 24kt foil glass hearts, dark blue goldstone tubes, faceted glass rondelles, silver-plated spacers, surgical steel earwires
