Whitby Jet drop earrings featuring 7mm stones in hallmarked 925 sterling silver on hook wires. Made in our Sheffield studio by jewellery designer Andrew Thomson.
These stones are 100% natural and therefore may differ slightly from those in the photos. However we guarantee they are of the highest quality and handpicked specifically for each design.
Whitby Jet Stone is an organic rock that is created when pieces of woody material are buried, compacted, and then goes through organic degradation. It is then heated, and what results is a coal seam. It’s usually black in colour, but there are also brown-coloured Jet Stones. It can be easily cut or carved, and it has a uniform texture that makes it possible to carve with accuracy. When rubbed and polished to a bright shine, it can have a very nice finish and its aesthetic value is greatly enhanced. You will be captivated by this stone’s beautiful silky glow!
