Located in the heart of Whitby below the iconic 199 steps that lead to the Abbey, W Hamond has been crafting the finest designer jewellery collections since 1860. Synonymous with style, sophistication and the Whitby Jet gemstone, we are proud to offer a wide selection of designer necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings for our customers, both in store and online. If you’ve always wanted to know more about W Hamond Designer Jewellery, you’ve come to the right place…
Ever since it first opened its doors in 1860, W Hamond also known as the Original Whitby Jet Store has remained in its original place at the top of Whitby's historic Church Street and at the foot of the famous Abbey steps, becoming an unmoveable part of the town’s heritage. The charming boutique has become a Victorian treasure since its first opening, offering a glimpse into an era when Whitby as a holiday destination was still in its infancy and fashionable Crinoline-clad ladies sought a piece of handmade Jet jewellery as a souvenir of their visit.
Whitby Jet has been found in several other parts of the world, but it is only on the north-east cost of Yorkshire in England where the finest Whitby Jet is sourced. After the semi-precious stone has been mined from the cliffs, our talented team of craftsmen and women work to shape and polish them into the stunning gold and silver pieces you can see on our website and in our stores. We also work with other precious gemstones like Blue John, Amber, Turquoise, Mother of Pearl and Diamond to create bespoke designer jewellery.
Alongside our stunning collections of designer jewellery, W Hamond is proud to offer first-class customer service. Our team of specialists are on hand to help for all occasions, whether you’re shopping for yourself or for someone else. We also provide a price match promise, free next day delivery and up to 5 years interest free finance across our products.
