Discover our beautifully hand crafted sterling silver and gold Celtic collection precision set with the finest natural gemstones. Explore a beautiful collection of Whitby Jet jewellery, inspired by the gemstone’s unique, rich heritage that put the Yorkshire town on the map. The stunning Celtic collection consists of striking geometric shapes, beautiful spirals and intricate knotwork inspired by a moment in Whitby’s religious history; The Synod of Whitby. A meeting was held at Whitby Abbey to decide whether the Easter date would follow Celtic or Roman tradition; two opposing sides with very different views. King Oswiu of Northumbria favoured Rome’s customs, which was the beginning of the end for Celtic spirituality. From curved spiral earrings to beautifully entwined pendants, rings and bracelets our exclusive Celtic collection captures the true spirit of the ancient religion. To compliment the Whitby Jet jewellery, our collection also features Blue John, Turquoise and Amber, all precision cut and polished to perfection for a beautiful finish. Browse our stunning jewellery range to find that perfect gift, a special keepsake to remember your trip or to simply add to your existing collection.
