A beautiful antique very early 1920s Whitby Jet bead necklace.

It is made up from meticulously hand carved, faceted jet beads, polished to a very high shine which gives a wonderful shine and shimmer on movement.

Craftsmen were incredibly skilled in giving ordinarily matte materials such as jet or steel a wonderful twinkle, like diamonds in low light.

Whitby Jet is a highly prized material amongst collectors today and is made from fossilised wood dating as far back as the jurrasic era.

It's rich inky Black hue making it a popular choice for mourning jewellery.

The necklace fastens with a brass screw fastener.

Good used condition overall, some light surface wear and scratches commensurate with age and use, a little tarnish to the brass fastener.

Approx measurements:
19.25" total length bead
