Frequently Asked Questions

Why is your gold jewelry more expensive than other sellers?

At Bay State Sea Glass we believe that top jewelry-grade sea glass is just as beautiful as other top gems and deserves to be set in solid gold. We are one of the only sellers that use solid gold instead of gold plated silver. Roughly 70% of the price of our gold jewelry is the cost of the gold itself. One way to significantly reduce the price would be to use gold plating which could wear out over time showing the base metal underneath, which does not meet our quality standards. Another way would be to use a lesser grade of gold such as 14K. There is a significant difference in color of 14k gold vs. 18K so we prefer the latter.
