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.
