Antica Murrina Venezia launches in the Philippines

Last December 1, 2014, the talented people of Antica Murrina Venezia launched their Philippine branch through Mr. and Mrs. Nardone of Porta Lucerna Trading. It was held over a grand dinner at Buddha Bar Makati which was hosted by Issa Litton and was graced by several A-Lister's in society such as Ms Imeda Marcos, Tessa Prieto Valdez, Peewee Reyes-Isidro, Divine Lee, Ritz Azul, Kylie Padilla, Keana Valenciano, Rica Peralejo Bonifacio, Charmagne Laconico, Rocio Olbes, Jerika Ejercito, Camille Mathay, Abby Asistio, and Maggie Wilson-Consunji. It was also attended by the CEO of Antica Murrina Venezia, Robert Ciotti, who was more than excited when he saw how perfect the dresses and jewelry line up were.

Great success!
Antica Murrina Venezia, which literally translates to the "Ancient Murrhine of Venice", speaks true to its name. They are well known for handcrafting fine timeless unique Murano jewelry and accessories from Italy. With each jewelry handcrafted by their famed Maestros, each piece is surely a one of a kind. Murano had been well known for their glass-blowing industry since the 12th century, since then it was an industry cherished. Antica Murrina Venezia has been one of the jewelry brands that upholds its commitment to quality, beauty and uniqueness. You can check out their home website or their Philippine website for more information on their collection.  

We talked about Antica Murrina being about uniqueness. With close collaboration with Ryan Madamba, Antica Murrina Philippines was able to showcase 31 pieces of Murano jewelry (from its autumn/winter 2014 collection) with the elegant dresses made of local "Abel Iloco" fabric. It was the perfect representation on how Murano jewelry can marry with our local own taste. You can check out their store at New World Hotel Galleries at Makati Avenue, corner Esperanza Street.
