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.
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.
