Introducing our fabulous Italian Jewellery Tour, featuring our oh-so-stylish and luxurious Italian brands. 

The event focuses on the much-loved Murano Glass Jewellery, stunning contemporary designs from Bronzo Italia, and new to QVC Bella Vita - a luxury fine jewellery brand which offers 18 carat gold plating at affordable prices, taking inspiration from the elegant Italian lifestyle. 

 

This special event highlights the history and culture behind Italian jewellery, as well as the phenomenal style and sophistication.

We will be taking you on a tour of these fantastic brands and their Italian origins. If you love travel and culture as well as stylish jewellery, this is definitely not a show to be missed!

Our buyers have selected their favourites from each brand to give you a taste of what to expect from our shows:

Bronzo Italia omega necklace

 

"This omega necklace by Bronzo Italia creates a statement whilst remaining understated and sophisticated. Featuring rose gold-plating, this piece is a fantastic contemporary update to a classic Italian look."

 

 

Bella Vita turquoise necklace

 

"We are really excited about our launch of Bella Vita, a brand that offers classic Italian gold designs which have become inaccessible in recent years. This turquoise station necklace is a beautiful classic piece and comes in an innovative new alloy which is finished in 18ct gold."

 

 

 

 

 

Murano Glass curved bead  bracelet

 

"I love the way that the beautifully patterned Murano glass has been used to deliver a statement fashion look in the colours of the season. This Murano Glass bracelet has also been curved to beautifully fit the wrist, a true piece of art!"

QVC UK went over to visit Murano where we shot this stunning video.

 

We also caught up with Francesca Randazzo, creator of the glamorous Murano brand…

Crafted using a technique handed down from father to son, the first to master the technique were the Phoenicians and then this technique spread along the Mediterranean coast of the Middle East and Egypt. 

Francesca says:
"Our beads are created with the lampwork technique, the oldest of all methods. This technique derives its name by the fact that they once used a real oil lamp whose flame was kept alive by the breath of a bellows. Today the heat is obtained through an oxygen torch with a flame that reaches temperatures of 1100C"

The company is based in Francesca's hometown of Arezzo. Produced solely in Italy, Murano Jewellery is handcrafted in the Venetian island of Murano, which is renowned for its artistic glassware. The glassworks have been in Murano since 1297, although the first historical documentation dates glassware activity as early as the year 982!

 

Running throughout the day, our Italian Jewellery Tour will be showing this amazing craftwork in stylish designs from Murano, the Bella Vita premiere show, along with much more! Join us on Monday 24th March for a fabulous jewellery tour of Italy.

    Did not think the Murano glass video shot in Venice very good at all! Shot in Venice it kept stopping in mid tracks, about 30 seconds to start again, not good at all. The other video, quite ridiculous! The language I think was Arabic, what was the sense of that, when QVC speak English!! Rather stupid I think!
