Members offer: 10% off at W. Hamond 9 Shambles

Award winning jeweller, W. Hamond, was established in Whitby in 1860, and as such is the oldest surviving Whitby Jet shop. All of the handmade jewellery at W. Hamond is designed and hand crafted in two British workshops, offering an unrivalled range of styles and designs from high end diamond set pieces, to bold contemporary shapes and delicate vintage styles plus a vast collection of genuine, antique Victorian Whitby Jet jewellery.

 

Whitby Jet is the fossilised wood from the modern day Monkey Puzzle (or Araucaria) tree. It is the most beautiful and lustrous black gemstone, and indeed the phrase “jet black” comes from Whitby Jet, due to the depth of colour in the stone. Whitby Jet is the only exclusively Yorkshire gemstone, as it is only found along a short stretch of the Whitby coastline. This precious gemstone is not mined in order to protect the breath taking Whitby coast and therefore Jet is beach combed by local people.

 

The York boutique is situated at 9 Shambles in an historic, beamed shop dating back to the 15th century. This family run business has three boutiques in York, Leeds and Whitby.

W. Hamond offers a full range of services including:

  • Bespoke jewellery design
  • Repairs
  • Valuations
  • Resizing
  • Alterations and modification of jewellery
