I always save my favorite and most rare sea glass for my gold pieces. This sea glass is from my special collection of neodymium pieces from Spain. Neodymium glass is dichrotic, meaning it shows different colors in different lighting. This piece has been meticulously set in 18k gold and polished to a high shine. The band a classy clean "wave" style in 14k gold and is a size 8. I have adorned the band with "urchins" that I crafted from recycled 14k gold. The bezel is backplated in recycled Argentium silver for economical purposes.

 

An excerpt from Beachcombing Magazine on Neodymium glass...

 

"Neodymium glass was produced throughout the world in the early 20th century, after Alexandrite crystals were discovered in 1885 and neodymium oxide (Nd2O3) was used to colorize glass. Leo Moser of Moser Glass was the first to develop the commercial use of neodymium in glass. He worked with scientists from Germany and England in the 1920s to perfect his process. Glass manufacturers from Czechoslovakia, Italy, Spain, England, and the U.S. followed suit, adding the compound to art glass, tableware, jewelry, and other items to take advantage of its color-changing properties.The name neodymium is derived from the Greek words neos (νέος), new, and didymos (διδύµος), twin. Neodymium glass is dichroic, which means it shows as two different colors, depending on the type of light shining through it. In sunlight, neodymium glass looks lavender, and in fluorescent light it looks blue."
