Wear the Colors of Italy’s Le­gendary Re­gatta

Smithsonian Magazine - - Prologue -

The Re­gata Stor­ica started in 1489, when the beau­ti­ful Ca­te­rina Cornaro, wife of the King of Cyprus, re­nounced her Cypriot throne in fa­vor of Venice. The peo­ple of Venice wel­comed her with a pa­rade of elab­o­rate ly­dec­o­rated gon­do­las, ina rain­bow of pop­ping colors. Ev­ery year since, the spirit of 1489 is re­cap­tured in those world-fa­mous canals when the fa­mous Re­gata is re­peated.

“...busi­nesses on the crowded lit­tle is­land [Mu­rano] also pro­duce high fash­ion jew­elry found on run­ways and in ex­clu­sive so­cial set­tings around the world”.

— The New York Times

Our Cornaro Neck­lace is the essence

of Venice, with the revelry of the Re­gata chan­neled into one per­fect piece of jew­elry.

The gor­geous colors re­call the Re­gata it­self, and the 59 beads of authen­tic Mu­rano are the only thing as his­toric and uniquely Venice as those gon­do­las. Each neck­lace is hand­made by the le­gendary Mu­rano glass­mak­ers, where the proud Vene­tian tra­di­tion has been passed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion, dat­ing back to be­fore the city threw that first fa­mous party

for Ca­te­rina. Thanks to the Re­gata, we’ve vis­ited Venice of­ten and made great con­tacts, which is how we found and ne­go­ti­ated the best pos­si­ble price on the high­est qual­ity Mu­rano avail­able. Now’s your chance to share in the spirit of this le­gendary event with­out need­ing to break out your pass­port.

Sat­is­fac­tion guar­an­teed or your money back. En­joy the gor­geous colors of the Cornaro Mu­rano

Neck­lace for 30 days. If it doesn’t pass with fly­ing colors, send it back for a full re­fund of the item price.

Lim­ited Re­serves. You could eas­ily pay $300 or more for a Mu­rano glass bead neck­lace, but at $49, this gen­uine hand­made Mu­rano won’t last. Don’t miss the boat!
