A top quality modern Whitby jet cabochon bracelet crafted in gleaming sterling silver. Whitby Jet is a fossilized mineral gemstone millions of years old that is only found in and around Whitby, a seaside hamlet in England.
This bracelet looks gorgeous when worn, it's tactile and effortlessly chic. The Jet is cut into 7 perfect oval cabochons that are slightly domed and high polished to a mirror shine. The impressively large gemstones are bezel mounted in open backed settings, you can plainly see the organic nature of this Jurassic age material from the back which just adds to the ancient wonder of this piece!
Hinged links and a fold-over clasp completes this fabulous and stylish example of contemporary English Jet jewellery that might soon become your favourite signature piece.
If you have never enjoyed genuine Whitby jet jewellery before it is a wonderful organic gemstone used since ancient times (Jet jewellery that dates to Roman times has been unearthed in Britain). Polished to a high shine it is a glossy intense deep black, it is featherweight, warm to the touch and if you tap it against your teeth it makes a dull tap.
We are located in the heart of the old Victorian Whitby Jet jewellery industry and all our Jet is locally sourced.
