Whitby Jet Oval Silver Stud Earrings

Smooth black ovals of Whitby Jet, set in sterling silver with a full silver backing, on silver posts with butterfly fastening. The earrings are 12mm long, by 9mm wide by 5mm deep.

Whitby Jet is fossilised wood of trees similar to the modern day Monkey Puzzle tree. Although jet can be found in other parts of the world, the jet found in the cliffs around Whitby is more dense and harder wearing and therefore a better quality.

Jet was very popular with the victorians, it was often carved into intricate patterns and shapes. These earrings use jet in a contemporary design allowing them to be worn with any outfit and shows how jet ca be polished to give a deep shine.
