Overview

At the shop “Principessa Cristalli d’Autore”,you can appreciate and purchase very special jewelry, objects and gift items made by original Murano Glass from the best Murano artisans and Francesca, the shop owner, designer and jeweler's maker. Most of the objects are unique pieces, but you will also find a lot of little gift ideas, and of course, everything is handmade.
