Here is a truly spectacular antique necklace that is not only made in Whitby jet, but also has seven panels of hand carved cameos that makes this necklace stand out like no other. Whitby jet is a fossilized material of a tree called the Araucaria Tree which is also known as the Monkey Puzzle tree. Dense black in colour â€“ which is where the term â€śJet blackâ€ť came from â€“ the best material has always come from the town of Whitby in England, where it was mostly depleted by the end of the 20th century. With a wonderful tactile feel to it, the largest piece in the centre measures 35.2mm in length and the smallest oval pieces near the end 27.7mm in length. The round piece at the very ends measure 15mm in diameter, and laid out from end to end, it measures 40cm in length and sits so beautifully around the neck. This is the style of piece that will make any woman walk tall and feel so proud to wear this. The shell cameos depict various scenes such as St George slaying the dragon and The Three Graces. The way the soft colouring from the shell cameo is set into the black of the Whitby jet, really makes each piece compliment one another, and there is no doubt that whenever and wherever this necklace is worn, it will always get the attention that it rightly deserves. As beautiful and elegant today as when it was made 140 years ago, this Whitby jet and cameo necklace is just divine. Stock# ES3448 Circa: 1880 $Sold.

Collars where popular towards the late Victorian period of the later part of the 1800's and where more often than not made in sterling silver, so it is very rare to find one in gold and even rarer to find one not only with its gold locket, but that locket set with diamonds as we have here with this incredible and very rare 18ct antique diamond collar with the morning glory flower design on each of the links. Sitting so elegantly on the neckline, this antique collar dates from the 1880's and measures 43cm from end to end, with each link measuring 1.4cm wide. When you feel this collar on your neck or even holding it in the palm of your hand, it feels so lovely and tactile and is just so charming with the morning glory flowers on each link. Representing love or morality in Victorian times, it was just another way to show ones love for another without making it overly public. Then leading down to the front is not only a very romantic heart shaped padlock connecting both ends, and not only is it displaying the most exquisite details, but there are two more very important features to it. Firstly it is set with a total of twenty two antique cut diamonds that total an impressive 3.07 carats and really sparkle incredibly. To find an antique collar is rare, but to find on set with diamonds really takes it to another level. Then secondly turning the padlock over reveals a locket compartment for a photo of a loved on to wear close to your heart. Once in a while an antique piece of jewellery comes along that is like no other, and this diamond set antique gold collar is really just one of those pieces. Stock# ES6671 Circa: 1880 $Sold.
