Red Sea Glass Necklace, rare beach glass pendant with floral setting
Rare red sea glass necklace with sterling silver bail in leaf design ... lovely gem from the North Sea. A true sign of love! Amberina is red going to orange on the edges and was once a popular glassware. This is a chunky piece with ridges - it is likely to have been a lens in its former life.
Sea glass is approx. 1.7cm, overall length incl bail is approx. 3.2cm, comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
Seaham is on the East Coast of England, near Durham and Newcastle. During the Victorian times until 1890s fabulous art glass artisan manufacturing took place in Seaham. At the end of each day small amounts of coloured glass was melted together and given to the Sea... nowadays these end of day pieces of sea glass get washed ashore. Some pieces have shades of the same colour, others are rainbow coloured.
Outstanding sea glass jewels to last you a lifetime!
