It was in the atmospheric town of Whitby that Bram Stoker’s imaginative fictional novel Dracula was created. Taking inspiration from the steeping slopes of Whitby Abbey, the churchyard, and the town’s strong connections to folklore, Bram Stoker visited North Yorkshire’s seaside town in 1890 to research the ethereal backdrop to his novel. Acknowledging the strong connections and undeniable influences that Whitby has with various iconic scenes in the novel, our exquisite hand designed W Hamond creations which are created at the heart of our design studios are able to recreate a true sense of the character’s paths and the mysterious atmosphere which still envelopes the town to this day. The collection embodies styles that accentuate the natural beauty and allure of the dark, intensely black, mirror-polish quality of the Whitby Jet stone. Influences taken from the horror story can be admired in our Whitby boutique with jewellery designs that include the iconic Whitby Jet Spider collection and many more. Our Bram Stokers collection not only embraces its historical links to the world-famous Dracula novel, but also to the large ostentatious designs of the Victorian era. Our dark, mystic and mesmerising pendants, necklaces and charms absorb elements form the 1900's yet bestow a timeless appeal for all to enjoy and admire.
W Hamond are proud to sponsor the Bram Stoker International Film Festival which takes place every year in the heart of Whitby.
