This impressive Victorian Whitby Jet brooch is hand-carved, measuring 3 inches across. Its intricate ivy leaf design and tubular hinge with c-clasp closure make it especially exquisite. Whitby Jet was quickly adopted as court etiquette, spurring merchants like W. Hamond to open their first Whitby Jet store in 1860 to meet the demand. Jet jewelry, made of lightweight wood, is both large and lavish, perfect for the sophisticated Victorian look.

Our collection consists of pieces that are of antique and vintage condition, which means that all our items are second-hand and used. Customers are not purchasing 'new', 'perfect' and 'unworn items', and as such, should expect wear and imperfection. It should be expected that these pieces will have normal wear and tear according to their age. Wear could include patina, scuffs on the gold, slightly loose but secure stones, and light scratches on the stones. We try our best to photograph everything accurately with detailed pictures that can be enlarged and will point out any flaws we feel are noteworthy. Please review the photos carefully before purchasing and reach out to us with any questions.
