This is a gorgeous heart with a rich coverage of 24ct gold foil submerged beneath the dark topaz, producing a stunning yellow. It takes such skill to make these beads which are imported from Venice. The size is about 12mm top to bottom. Murano hearts make a wonderful necklace when mixed with a clear Swarovksi bicone bead and sterling silver wire wrap. I make the pins which the bead threads onto from a thicker wire than they usual pins which are manufactured for additional security and strength.
This necklace comes with an 18" sterling silver box chain (1mm diameter).
