Victorian Whitby Jet and Onyx bracelet threaded with the customary elastic, this bracelet has a box clasp fitting measuring 18cm long. This bracelet consists of oblong domed faced faceted pieces a bit over 2.0cm by 0.50cm” all backs are smooth, and rectangle faceted onyx beads.
Jet has the ability to make a dramatic statement and always looks best in larger pieces. Jet was not intended for ‘pretty’. Hand carved Whitby jet from Whitby England is becoming rare. During Queen Victoria’s mourning period following Prince Albert’s death she wore Whitby jet.
