Marvel at the exquisite large carved Whitby Jet ivy leaf brooch! This exceptional Victorian piece features an intricate ivy leaf design with a tubular hinge and c-claps closure. Jet was the fashionable choice of the court during the mid-1800s and Whitby-based W. Hamond opened their first Whitby Jet store to meet the demand. And since it's made of wood, this jewelry is light as a feather - so you can rock those lavish designs without getting weighed down! Talk about a Victorian dream come true!

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.
