A top quality modern Whitby jet 3 drop pendant necklace crafted in thick silky sterling silver. Considered the best quality in the world Whitby jet is a fossilized mineral gemstone millions of years old that is only found in and around Whitby, a seaside hamlet in England.
The necklace comes complete with a dark green leatherette jewellery box shown which is printed with "W. Hammond The Original Whitby Jet Shop Established 1860" inside the lid.
This pendant is quite the statement size for a jet piece, it is tactile and effortlessly chic. The jet is cut into 3 perfectly round flat cabochons that graduate in size. The impressively large gemstones are bezel mounted in closed back silver settings that are high polished to a mirror finish. A fan shaped bale decorates the top and a high quality thick gauge sterling silver Belcher chain 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 found in Britain). Polished to a high shine jet is a glossy deep black, very lightweight and warm to the touch, if you tap it against your teeth it makes a dull tap. Our shop is based in the heart of the old Victorian Whitby jet jewellery district and all our jet is locally sourced.
