Earrings Murano Glass Cobalt
A blaze of color: Venetian glass
On the lagoon island of Murano, just outside Venice, the iridescent colored glass beads are created in the best Venetian tradition, from which these earrings are made in a jewelry workshop in Pforzheim. The beads gain their shape, color and beauty each individually by hand under the flame. The processed glass material is extremely break-resistant thanks to a particularly high proportion of aluminum oxide - beyond this information, the manufacturing companies do not reveal the secret of the composition of their starting material and their color formulas. Only the iridescence can be explained: A fine gold foil is placed over the raw pearl bodies separated from a glass rod - as a base for another colored glass layer - and finally another layer of clear or colored glass is applied on top. One glass bead is used in each of these earrings. By using both white and yellow fine gold foil in the glass bead, the earrings can be combined equally with gold and silver jewelry.
Ménard. Timelessly beautiful and sustainably good
When Gisela and Detlef Menard founded their own company in 1981, the focus was still on the sale of antique-style jewelry. It has long since become an established family business that stands for timeless design, high quality and durability. To achieve this, Ménard harmoniously brought together craftsmanship, functionality and design. The clasps of the necklaces and bracelets, for example, are not just a necessary constructive evil, but in their simultaneously simple and effective design are in part pieces of jewelry in their own right. It is no wonder that Ménard has registered them as designs. Almost a trademark are the necklaces and bracelets made of the colorful Murano glass beads, which come from the lagoon island near Venice, famous for its glass art. And of course Ménard also processes classic jewelry materials such as pearls.
The idea of sustainability also plays a major role at Ménard. Thus, one relies on the location of Germany due to the high labor and social standards, short transport routes and technical expertise: the silver clasps come from the gold city of Pforzheim, stones are processed in the gemstone city of Idar-Oberstein. It is worth noting that Ménard works specifically with precious metal refineries that use only recycled silver and gold. Environmentally friendly packaging material rounds off the holistic concept.
