Upcycled Welsh Purple Sea Glass Sterling Silver Stud Earrings

Upcycled Welsh Purple Sea Glass Sterling Silver Stud Earrings
Love this


Connecting you to the land and history from where it came, the sea glass featured in these earrings was discovered on the beach in Beaumaris. Most lavender sea glass comes from older Pre World War I clear vintage canning jars and other glass containing manganese, a de-colourizer originally used to remove the green caused by the iron naturally found in sand. Some manganese dioxide decolourized bottles may date as early as the 1820's and as late as the 1930's. Over a period of many years the glass made with manganese turns lavender when exposed to sunlight. This is called "sun-purpled". You can also determine how old your glass is by any markings or bubbles.
Backing: Your sea glass shards are set into fine silver, so you don't have to worry about tarnishing over time. Sterling Silver earring posts ensure you shouldn't have to worry about any metal allergies or green earlobes.

This is the perfect jewellery gift for someone who wants to express their unique style, love of the ocean and desire to take care of the environment. Given the gift themes of the 3rd (glass), 11th (jewellery) and 25th (silver) wedding anniversaries - these earrings would make a creative, thoughtful wedding anniversary gift.

They will arrive gift-ready in a cotton pouch, along with their story, inside a tissue-lined box made from recycled materials.


These earrings were inspired by walks along the beach in Wales, especially on Anglesey and the history and charm of Beaumaris. These sterling silver earrings re-tell the stories of its past craftsmen and ground you in connection.... to a person, a place or a memory of Wales, its coast and heritage.

When you purchase a piece of Unearthed Jewellery, you also receive the provenance that has been uncovered....where it was unearthed, what it was from, and more.
