A beautiful opulent Venetian Murano puffed heart wedding cake (or Dogaressa) glass bead which measures 28mm (2.8cm or just over 1") and is 20mm (2cm or 3/4") thick. It weighs 20g - that's a lot of glass.
In the classic tradition of 17th and 18th century Venice when it was world renowned for it's extravagance. 24k gold foil has been applied over an opaque glass base, then ribbons of white, green and pink glass have been added before pink rosebuds have been hand painted in molten glass.
Please note that the pattern and placement of the exterior decoration is different to the front and back, including the size, clarity and depth of colour of the rosebuds. Both sides have been photographed. All photographs are taken right beside the window in natural daylight.
Enhanced with 24k gold Vermeil beads, a Swarovski crystal and 14k gold filled beads. It comes on an 18" gold plated chain and will arrive in a gift box.
This bead has exterior 24k gold foil which may be subject to a little wear over time and/or contact with other jewellery. This is not a fault, simply a characteristic of exterior foiled beads.
