Beautifully Carved Victorian Whitby Jet and Seed Pearl Pendant. As with all Whitby Jet Jewellery, it was originally used as mourning jewellery. It became popular following the death of Albert, husband and King consort to Queen Victoria.
The jet black was seen as appropriate attire following bereavement. In addition, this piece has a lovely 3 leaf clover or shamrock made of 3 seed pearls.
