Rare Cerulean Sea Glass

Rare Cerulean Sea Glass

Dreaming of calm cerulean seas lately?  With all that’s in the news these last few weeks and being stuck at home with no end in sight, I’ll admit I’ve been mentally escaping to white sand beaches and aqua waters.  Inspired by those turquoise waters, I bring you a collection of ultra rare bright blue sea glass jewelry.  Where did this color originate from?

Cerulean blue sea glass, also known by some collectors as turquoise or electric blue, is the rarest of the blues. Your chances of finding a red piece of sea glass are even higher than finding this special blue color.  The odds that you’ll find this color are about 1 in 5,000, according to Richard LaMotte author of the popular book Pure Sea Glass: Nature’s Vanishing Gems.

This color glass was difficult to produce, so it was really only manufactured for tableware, vases, seltzer bottles, flasks, and art glass. Peak production years of cerulean glass were from the late 1800s to the 1950s. Because this shade of glass wasn’t widely produced, you can assume that any cerulean piece you find is most likely older than most other colors. If you get super lucky, you'll even find some pieces with the original decorative texture on it still, like this textured sea glass heart.

Sea Glass Heart

This shade of sea glass mostly originates from England or the Caribbean. Patterned blue glass from windows is sometimes found on the beaches in the Caribbean - used in window panes to filter out the blazing sunlight. These textured pieces are a sought-after rarity. 

Because cerulean sea glass is so rare, I treasure each piece and the opportunity to turn it into something special just for you. Paired with a dainty gold chain or earrings, I imagine it being the perfect pop of color with a little black dress or the perfect start to your spring wardrobe. Either way, its vibrant blue color is sure to turn heads. 

This limited edition collection of rare cerulean sea glass will be dropping soon.  Make sure you're on the email list to get first access over to the shop to claim your very own piece of this rare treasure.

Pink and White Sea Glass: A Rare Ocean Treasure

Pink and White Sea Glass: A Rare Ocean Treasure

Pink and white sea glass... Have you ever wondered where these rare shades of sea glass come from?  If you're lucky, you may have found a piece of this coveted shade of sea glass on the beach.  And if you're anything like me, you jumped for joy when you found it!
-
Pink sea glass is special because it is from a specific time period in American history—the Great Depression.  The iconic pink glass made for cheap cups, plates, and other dishes. The low cost made it readily available to families struggling through financial crisis.  Most of it ended up in your grandmother's attic or an antique shop, but some of it managed to find its way to the ocean, to be tumbled and turned into this lovely peachy sea glass. This sea glass is a reminder that the dark times will pass and be made beautiful with time.

White sea glass also comes from the kitchen—a few decades earlier. Milk glass was commonly used for canning and dishes in the late early 1900s. Like the “depression glass,” much of it ended up in antique stores, while some of it found its way to the sea. The sea now gives it back to us in the form of opaque white sea glass that compliments any outfit with an air of calm and sophistication.
Both colors, set in dainty gold, make the perfect compliment to that little black dress you've been saving or that spring dress you're dying to pull out of the closet for the first time after a long winter.

Sea Glass Gives Back

Did you know that for every piece of sea glass jewelry purchased, we donate $1 to a charitable organization that benefits our oceans?
Last year, we donated to an incredible project called "Fore the Waves." It began with a teenager who noticed a problem: golf balls littering the ocean floor.  Over just a few years, she collected over 50,000 golfballs off the ocean floor. But she didn't stop there. She went on to collaborate with a local artist and, together, they were able to use 20,000 golf balls to create a giant, interactive wave sculpture which went on tour to educate young people about ocean pollution. As a result of this project, at least one local golf course has already agreed to fund their own clean up and education efforts. 
We are inspired by the courage of this young team, and we look forward to finding more sea-worthy causes to support with the help of your purchases.
