Happy Halloween folks!

Whitby jet mourning jewellery pattern.

Whitby, in North Yorkshire was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ and is the spiritual home of goths. The Victorians wore only black during a period of mourning following the death of a loved one. The world famous Whitby jet was carved into all sorts of beautiful pieces to respectfully accessorise the outfit of a lady in mourning.
