How To Buy Authentic Murano Glass Jewelry Wholesale

Author : Kevin Grinberg


On a small island of Murano near Venice in Italy, glass artisans have been making beautiful glass objects for more than a thousand years. For centuries, these superb art pieces were so expensive that only the rich and powerful people could own them.

But, thanks to the modern technology, exquisite hand-crafted Murano glass is now affordable for everyone, all over the world. The wholesale Murano glass jewelry distributors are making Murano jewelry and art objects available in almost all corners of the world, introducing to average people the true beauty of glass jewelry and art, made, just like thousand years ago, by skilled hands of trained and experienced Murano artisans.

Since it is made possible to build the glass-making furnaces small enough for an average artist's studio, glass making has become a popular way for artists to express themselves. It also made it possible to make glass objects faster, significantly lowering the price. There are now thousands of artists producing and selling lovely glass jewelry and art objects.

But, the techniques for glass making are still almost the same as when Murano artisans invented them through the last ten centuries. Many modern glass artists spend some time in Murano where they work in ancient glass making factories, learning the techniques for making art out of sand and dreams out of the flames of furnaces. Murano Island is again the world center of beautiful glass jewelry and art objects.

Technology also made it possible to make glass jewelry and objects using machines, fast and cheap, for the mass market. To boost the price of such objects, many unscrupulous retailers call their glass products 'Murano glass."

Murano glass is popular collector's and gift item because of its superb craftsmanship, exquisite colors and the sense of history Murano glass brings from Murano, where it has been produced for more than thousand years. Unfortunately, the popularity of Murano glass is also encouraging a thriving trade of fake Murano glass, copies made by machines that are far cry from the real Murano glass in originality and quality of craftsmanship.

Some people are attracted by the low price of fake Murano glass objects, and do not bother to find out if they are real or fake. But, if you wish to own real piece of Murano glass, for your collection or as a special gift, the best way to make sure it is a true Murano, short of traveling to Italy, is to buy it through reliable Murano glass retailers, who sell Murano glass jewelry wholesale.

A number of respected and reputable distributors and retailers of Murano glass have a well-established relationship with various Murano glass factories. They work with Murano artists directly, in a symbiotic relationship, beneficial for everyone: the artists' work reaches the glass lovers all over the world, the retailers have steady supply of high quality authentic murano glass jewelry wholesale, and the customers get the most beautiful glass art in the world.

The wholesale Murano glass jewelry distributors manage to keep the price of original Murano glass sufficiently affordable for average consumers, but if you find a piece of "Murano" glass jewelry that is really cheap, you can be sure that it is mass-produced. It is simply not possible to make a piece of glass art by hand and sell it for next to nothing.

Some Murano glass manufacturers emboss their factory seal, which is the best sign of authenticity. But, it is not possible to mark in such a way small pieces of Murano glass, such as necklaces or pendants. For that, you depend on the reputation of a wholesale Murano glass jewelry distributor.
