Forming part of the Rare Collection, pink seaglass has been hand-carved into a kite shape from seaglass beach-combed in Falmouth Bay. This type of glass was originally used as perfume bottles and tableware in the 1800’s. The pink-red pigment was very expensive and so a thin layer was applied to clear glass to keep costs down. In this piece you can see where the pigment has been worn by the ocean on the left side, and an air bubble is visible at the top. A rare and lucky find.
The seaglass measures approximately 18mm tall and 10mm wide, set in recycled silver with a silver chain.
This piece is available on a range of chain lengths. If you are unsure of which to choose, please look at the guide in the FAQ’s. Longer chains are priced slightly differently – these are shown when changing the chain length in the chain length option.
All Porth seaglass necklaces are beautifully packaged in a grey box, with the Porth logo printed in turquoise on top. Each piece of jewellery also comes with a care sheet and a small map showing where it was beach-combed for provenance. Perfect for a special gift.
