Glass jewellery – timeless beauty

Glass jewellery is timeless, and infinitely versatile. A wonderful material that has been used as adornment since pre-Roman times, glass is both glamorous and practical. Whether created in a traditional style or given a contemporary twist, glass can take many forms in the world of fashion jewellery. Older production methods, such as the manufacture of faceted cut crystal components, mimic precious gemstones and jewels – the most well known, of course, being the sparkly crystal imitation of diamonds. The ancient Italian technique of ‘millefiori’ (translated literally as ‘thousands of flowers’) was developed originally in Murano, Italy…a place famous for its unique and beautiful glassware styles. Millefiori is an effect where delicate , small ‘floral’ patterns, usually in many colours, are embedded within the body of the glass. The technique works particularily well in the production of jewellery and here at Joe Cool we have many beautiful examples of millefiori earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. Simple glass jewellery has its own charm and for hundreds of years drilled beads and pendants or tiny beads woven into elaborate patterns have been crafted across the world. Have a look at our huge variety of traditional and contemporary glass jewellery styles.

Glass rings have been a staple of the Joe Cool range for many years, and we have a large variety of styles from which to choose. Every ring is handmade so each and every beautiful design is unique. The millefiori style domed rings featured, come in a choice of six beautiful colours and numerous designs incorporating gold and silver as well as a range of vivid colours. ‘Glass lined domed’ are wonderful swirls of lustre colours and ‘high spot’ is a striking design of irregular black spots on pure hued base.

For an airy summer feel look at ‘lagoon blue’ and ‘deep ocean colour’ – both in a range of wonderful speckled, striped and swirling styles. Inspired by Mediterranean seas and tropical skies every one is a stunning reminder of beautiful ocean colours.

Vibrant arty designs are available in a profusion of incredible stripes, spots, squiggles, splashes or just simple gorgeous self-coloured glass! Choose unique glass jewellery styles from across every imaginable colour and design. Glass with class!
