“Whitby Jet” bracelet

This substantial 925 sterling silver bracelet comprises eight carefully shaped Whitby jet cabochons of approximately 14 x 8mm. They have been beautifully set into this sold silver bracelet which has an internal circumference of 7¾ inches (almost 20cm) so suitable for a medium to reasonably large wrist. It also has a weighty belcher safety chain to ensure you won’t lose this eye-catching piece. The bracelet’s weight is 22g and each link is either stamped 925 or bears the maker’s mark.

We are delighted to be able to offer this wonderful item, created by a long established and experienced jeweller. He has used genuine Whitby jet which is an anaerobic fossil of the tree Araucaria (very similar to the “monkey puzzle” trees we see today). It is a product of high pressure decomposition of the wood which became embedded in sedimentary rock some 180 – 200 million years ago during the early Jurassic period. Jet is available worldwide but Whitby Jet is considered the finest quality. The “gemstone” was made popular by Queen Victoria, worn when she was in mourning.

Jet is a mineral of protection and is said to ward off evil spirits, negativity and depression. Just like the original tree, jet has qualities of balance and support. It is also thought to be good for finance, business and all kinds of personal abundance. My blog “What’s With Whitby Jet?” explains more about this unique fossil.

The bracelet comes in one of our distinctive black boxes, with the descriptive enclosure (photographed) which tells the new owner of this one-off jewellery all about its qualities. A complementary polishing cloth is also included. Delivery is free of charge within the UK.
