Millefiore pendants
« on: March 22, 2006, 10:38:51 AM »
I bought these in a moment of madness.  :roll:

I think the two similar ones are gold plated silver (there's a hallmark...I think I can make out 925?) and the 'tree' pendant I think could be just gold, it's fragile and fine.

These are the type of thing that tourists would pick up, aren't they?

Possibly, but this type of jewellery can become very sought after

Hi Max!

Wow! Looking at your pendants reminded me of one I have that is similar to those. I bought it many, many years ago. I was shopping with my Mom at a outlets mall here in Michigan. They had a Murano store there, and we went in to look around. At the time I wasn't into glass, we were just looking. I bought this pendant and it's trimmed in silver. I have to polish it every once and a while or it tarnishes. If I only knew then what I like now...I could have bought some great pieces of glass!!! The store is long gone, but boy did I miss the boat on that one!!!

That's a nice pendant Cathy. with closer packed millefiore than mine.   :D

I know what you mean about wishing you'd bought more glass years ago.  I think back to when Whitefriars glass was worth almost nothing...I wish I'd bought some big bricklayers - I'd be RICHHHHHHH now!

I thought I'd mention too that my pendant came in a little bag. On the bag it says "IL Mosaico Veniziano" I think IL Mosaico means "The Mosaic" but I'm unsure to Veniziano. It's kinda hard to read, but I think I have it spelled correctly.
