Murano glass is combined with the iridescence of a dichroic coating to create these vibrant earrings. This pair of earrings has a dark black base with a silver-blue color shift. Sterling silver ear wires and Swarovski crystals are used to complete the look. Approximately 1 1/2 inches in length.
What is dichroic glass? The dichroic coating, originally developed for use in aerospace technology, is a multi-layer coating of quartz crystals and oxides that have been bonded to the Murano glass. This expensive process produces a glass that has two different colors, a transmitted color and a reflective color and these colors change depending on the angle of view.
