Whitby Jet Jewellery

View our stunning Whitby Jet jewellery collections made from the finest quality English Jet. Our exquisite jewellery designs are handmade within our very own workshops, with each gemstone which has been carefully hand selected, precision cut, and polished to perfection. Whitby Jet displays an intense unique black high lustre finish, and takes an mirror like high polish finish.  Whitby Jet is an organic gemstone, formed in the early Jurassic period from fossilized monkey puzzle tree. Thought to be in the region of 180 million years old, Jet is formed under extreme high pressure, discovered in seams of shale compressed over millions of years. Seams of Whitby Jet can on occasions be visible in the Yorkshire coastline, which often extend under the seabed. Pieces of Jet may often break away in rough seas and harsh weather conditions, before being washed up on the shores. The Whitby Jet gemstone became very popular during the Victorian era, with strong links to the British Royal Family, worn by Queen Victoria as tribute to her late husband Prince Albert. The expression Jet Black has been a commonly used phrase for hundreds of years. Jet can be sourced in small deposits across the world, including Germany, Spain, and the United States of America, although the finest gemstone jewellery quality Jet, has always been sourced from Whitby, North Yorkshire, England. We offer an unrivalled selection of stunning Whitby Jet jewellery, including our precious diamond set jewellery collection of Whitby Jet rings,  earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets and charms, finished to the highest standard and suitable for all occasions.
