This unique jewellery is inspired by Whitby, North Yorkshire. Synonymous with Captain Cook and Dracula this coastal town has quirky narrow streets, russet rooftops and bustling harbour, overlooked by the majestic Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey. This fascinating town holds special memories for me as I went to school there but more importantly, it is the only place in the world to find Whitby Jet.
 
A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
 
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
 
Whitby Jet is very rare and very old; one hundred and fifty million years in fact. It is actually a fossilised monkey puzzle tree that with the movement of the earth’s crust became compressed with rock and sand to form seams in the cliffs around Whitby. Made famous by Queen Victoria semi-precious black Whitby Jet is truly inspirational.
 
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
