The brothers Jan and Václav Fišers from Turnov. Their alleged voyage to Venice, five years of efforts to seize the local secret of secrecy, return to Turnov, dozens of wasted attempts and then - finally success! In 1711 they made the first glass for the production of artificial stones.

THE GLASSHOUSE IN NOVÝ SVĚT

It was in 1712, when Elias Müller built his glassworks on the estate of the Harrach Counts in Jilemnice.

Even today, you can see not only metallurgical production and blowing glass, but also a hundred-year-old grinding shop. It is driven by a water turbine and transmissions used to distribute the driving force.

He was one of the first to venture into the world for business.

BLOWN BEAD and its way to the tree

People can make sense of time and numbers, but not us, beads. However, I have heard that they have been blowing me in the mountains for more than a hundred years. As a bead would put it, that is a long time. You, who have never seen how a bead is born, you don´t know how beautiful life can be....

Palace Plus Story

Proficient merchants and businessmen have always contributed to the success of Jablonec jewellery. Since the very beginning of the production of glass beads and imitation jewellery, they have been able to convince customers around the world of the exceptional quality of these products. Gradually, they created a worldwide network of representatives and customers.
The idea of a comprehensive offer of jewellery production from the whole region was revived in 2010 by the Association of Glass and Imitation Jewellery Manufacturers. The association became the founder of the Palace Plus jewellery centre. This centre gradually concentrated business offers from 45 manufactures under one brand “Made in Jablonec”. Palace Plus has built a position of “the centre of Czech imitation jewellery”. Apart from sales, it also organizes huge presentation events, such as “The Workshop of Inspiration”, “Czech Christmas”, and also specialized workshops and seminars.
Every year, Palace plus welcomes thousands of visitors in Jablonec nad Nisou and revives the city as “The City of Glass and Imitation Jewellery”.

In centre Palace Plus, you can see over five thousand kinds of jewellery, utility glass, traditional handmade Christmas decoration and components for jewellery production. There are also brands like Preciosa and Granat. The collection offers exclusively Czech products. 

A large creative workshop for children and adults is open throughout the opening hours.
