Whitby Jet has a long and proud tradition of helping people during their periods of mourning. From the Early Neolithic we have buried our loved ones with jet jewellery and amulets. Jet is also found in association with cremation burials from the Iron Age. Many jet working communities have rich traditions of jet bringing comfort to the dying, and the Amazonian Indians tell us that they still burn jet to help remove sorrow from the community following bereavement.
It comes as little surprise therefore that pride ourselves in our memorial jewellery service. Any of our settings with a solid back can be adapted to hold ashes or hair of loved ones. The Whitby Jet seals the ashes in place. Please contact us with your specifications. If you are able to visit Whitby, your item can be made whilst you wait, or we can offer a postal service.
