VENEZIANA NECKLACE - BLACK - Edelweiss
An elegant and timeless gold box chain with a small AMOURRINA pendant.
The gold box chain, also called "venetian chain" (veneziana), is handmade with small gold rings to be welded together to form a fine link. This type of manual processing is typically Venetian: it is reported that the Venetians learned the process in Constantinople by the 6th century. The Venetian chains adorned the necks and wrists of Venetian noblewomen and Dogaresse throughout the history of the Republic of Venice.
PENDANT: Medium AMOURRINA bead (Ø14mm), handmade in Murano (Venice), Italy
CHAIN: gold box chain (lenght 45 cm + 5 + 5)
MATERIAL and FINISHING: bronze, 18k gold plating
Amourrina beads are handmade of glass. Manufacturing of this product has been realized in Murano (Venice) with hand crafted procedures, therefore small imperfections, subsidence and ripples of the surface are deliberately present and they are a feature of the product, proving the hand-made manufacturing procedure.
CARE: Avoid falls and bumps to prevent chipping or breakage. In recent years, arsenic and lead - both proven harmful to the environment and to humans - have been removed from the ingredients composing the glass used to make the murrine rods. Due to this change in the components blend, the white parts of the beads could oxidize over time. This oxide, which is not harmful in any way, can be easily removed by cleaning the beads with a cotton swab or soft cloth soaked with a common anti-rust product.
All the metal components are handmade of 18k gold plated bronze and are nickel free. Manufacturing has been realised in a small craft workshop in Arezzo which adopts responsible policy towards the sustainability of production using brass alloys produced exclusively from recycled and certified resources
CARE: To make your gold plated items last for as long as possible, we recommend you limit the exposure to certain substances such as chlorine, perfume, lotion, sprays, sea water. Only use a soft cloth to clean your item, for example the kind of cloth used to clean glasses with.
