Whitby Jet became increasingly popular in the mid-1800s when black jewellery was brought into fashion by Queen Victoria who wore the pieces as part of her mourning attire.Ferns were also a fashionable motif during this time after a sudden craze for the plants spread across the nation in a fad known as “Pteridomania”, or “Fern mania”.  

It’s a highly collectable Victorian find, displaying beautiful workmanship that has a remained intact and in excellent condition across the centuries.
