What is sea glass?

14 kt Gold Sea Glass Earrings

Sea glass is fragments and shards of glass from broken bottles, that have made their way into the ocean from coastal dumpsites, shipwreck and shoreline restaurants.  Glass is rolled and tumbled by waves and current for many years.  Ultimately, sharp edges are smoothed and sheen is worn into a frosted appearance. This frosted look is what sea glass collectors come to know as cured or the curing process.  Glass is considered “jewelry” grade based on its frost (cured), color rarity, size and shape.
