More about W Hamond - Original Whitby Jet Shop

A trip to Whitby would be incomplete without visiting W Hamond, the original Whitby Jet Shop and the town’s oldest surviving manufacturer of jet jewellery. The Boutique Shop is still located on Whitby’s historic Church Street, at the foot of Whitby Abbey’s famous 199 steps, in the original spot from where it all began back in 1860.

Each unique jet jewellery piece has been painstakingly hand-crafted and designed in W Hamond’s own workshop and skilled craftsmen continue to work only the finest quality of Whitby Jet, gathered locally. Unrivalled collections of classic and contemporary jewellery designs are beautifully displayed in the boutique shop. Various collections can be viewed in the shop and online too. Why not take a piece of “Whitby Jet” home, to remind you of a wonderful visit to Whitby?

Accessible through (and directly above) the Boutique Shop you’ll find the W Hamond Tea Rooms which offers a real haven to Whitby visitors, where you’ll be assured of a warm welcome and a cosy and relaxed experience. Whether it’s a full English breakfast, a lunchtime treat or a traditional afternoon tea, there’s an excellent array of delicious, mouth-watering foods and drink just waiting to be served at your table.
