Especially today – 160 years after its development – this type of jewellery is frequently copied.

This especially attractive pendant made of borkwood represents the Victorian era of 19th century England. Like Jet jewellery, borkwood was worn as mourning jewellery which does not only reflect the sentimentality of this epoch but also Queen Victoria’s mourning for her beloved husband Prince Albert. It was the Queen herself who with her widow’s attire created a fashion trend and even today this black, opaque material has not lost its unusual attraction.

The drop shaped pendant is adorned by a mounted grape and leaves.

The handcrafted and blackened silver ring is attached to a long, lacklustre polished onyx necklace with a silver latch. – An extremely decorative piece of jewellery of outstandingly fine beauty.

The material of this bracelet represents the Victorian Age of 19th century England like no other. Jet jewellery became popular after Queen Victoria had lost her beloved husband Prince Albert in 1861. From this point onwards she went into life long mourning wearing this black jewellery with her black robes. She determined that the whole court had to wear nothing but mourning jewellery.

Like this, Jet jewellery became fashionable at other European courts, too, and remained popular until the turn of the century. During this period, this type of jewellery was often copied. Yet, not only the contemporaries did so, it was a common practise in the aftermath as well.

The French used black glass to create this type of jewellery which became known as French Jet.

Purchasing this decorative bracelet you will receive a very well preserved original, consisting of 13 concavely cut links which are each adjourned by two small Jet beads. The original bracelet has been newly threaded on elastic strap. Due to the light weight of the material, this bracelet is especially well wearable being at the same time highly decorative due to the exceptional brilliance of this opaque substance.

A true collector’s item.

This very decorative brooch is made of French Jet – the French equivalent to English Whitby Jet jewellery which became popular when Queen Victoria made her court wear this mourning jewellery after the death of her beloved husband Prince Albert. At other European courts this jewellery became popular as well, while the French version was crafted in black glass rather than fossil wood.

The fascination of this piece of jewellery is determined by the opaque brilliance of the black glass. The elaborate blossoms are set on two levels. Due to this arrangement, there is a reflection of light in between the immersed furrows causing a mysterious brilliance.

Like this, this more than 130-year-old original from France reflects the glamour of past centuries.
