You can have this ring with a different Murano glass colour. The Murano glass was hand picked and choosen by myself in one of my journeys to Venice - Murano.The island of Murano is located 3km north of Venice in Italy and has been a prosperous commercial port since the 7th Century. The vibrancy of Murano glass is unmistakable, appearing to glow from within.
Glass is a solid matter which, in its raw state, is made of siliceous sand, soda, lime and potassium melted together in an oven at a temperature of 1500°C, to become a flexible material. Then, the glassmaker removes this substance from the oven with the help of a pipe, and shapes it using various specialized instruments that changed little since antiquity, such as pliers, scissors and wooden shovels. "Glass-blowing" refers to a method of blowing inside the pipe to give the glass object a form.
The magnificent appearance and coloring of Murano glass is achieved by adding gold or silver foil to the glass mixture and/or adding minerals such as zinc for white, cobalt for blue, manganese for violet, and so on.
