VICTORIAN jet worker's tools as shown in Helen Muller's book "Jet". I was surprised to see how primitive some of the actual tools were, homemade and well used. The artistry in the hand best carved jet jewelry is amazing.

Whitby, England, is known for it's ammonites.

VICTORIAN jet worker's tools as shown in Helen Muller's book "Jet". A shop in Whitby still has an original display very much like this showing a complete workshop and original tools from over 100 years ago.

NEW BOOK

By Katy Muller & Helen Muller

VICTORIAN Whitby jet hand carved brooch and earrings with painted porcelain ovals of cherubs and flowers, a rare set with wonderful detailing.    #VHM3

 

For more information about JET and other Victorian black jewelry we recommend the excellent book 'Jet' by Helen Muller.

Order a brand new black and white re-print of the original publication of  "JET" by Helen Muller with front cover in color. The first book about jet jewelry and ornaments  ever published, it covers the history, geology and materials used to simulate jet (vulcanite, bog oak, pressed horn, etc.) as well as jet itself. There are 149 pages with wonderful black and white illustrations.
WHAT IS REAL WHITBY JET?

This book and the newer edition are available on Amazon.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
