Being based in Yorkshire ourselves this is a collection close to our hearts. See here collections based on the famous Yorkshire Rose and our local gemstone, Whitby Jet.
Jet can be found in different countries around the world, mainly China, Siberia, USA & Germany, but the finest jet has always been said to come from England, more specifically , the North-East coast of Yorkshire around Whitby and Robins Hood Bay. Jet is fossilised wood, similar to the wood of a monkey puzzle tree. It has been compressed under the ground for millions of years. Whitby jet is very lightweight and can be polished to a very high shine and has an intense black colour.
Our designs below are handmade and each one may differ slightly to the next. The raw pieces of Whitby Jet are all unique sizes and shapes, some parts polished to a high shine while others show the raw texture of the jet.
