The piece of rare black sea glass dates back to the late 1700 or early 1800’s. The majority of black glass was made with iron slag. Black glass was most often used in spirit and medicine bottles to protect the contents from sunlight. We found this piece of black glass on our favorite beach in the Abaco Islands.
When held up to the light black sea glass has a slight green tint, but against your skin it is perfectly black.
The black sea glass is set in a custom made sterling silver bezel. The setting is open behind the sea glass to allow the beautiful natural color to shine through.
All metal is sterling silver.
The sea glass bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches. The chain is a sturdy 3 mm sterling silver anchor chain. It has a lobster claw closure. The length of the bracelet can be adjusted to fit your wrist. Measure your wrist size and add 1/2 inch for a perfect fit.
