These Whitby jet earrings measure an elegant 6.5cm in length and look amazing on the ear. Antique Whitby jet is becoming so popular and sought after, and harder to find in good condition as the years go by.

A brief history on Whitby jet:

Whitby Jet is a fossilized material of a tree called the Araucaria Tree also known as the Monkey Puzzle tree and is dense black in colour, which is where the term “Jet black” came from. Found since 10,000 BC in countries such as Poland, France, Spain and Germany, the best material has always come from the town of Whitby in England.
