This pretty cross made of Whitby Jet reflects the Victorian Age like no other. Queen Victoria’s life long mourning for her beloved husband Prince Albert led to the popularity of this material in England which looks especially exquisite due to its black brilliance.

Even today this light weighed material is very popular due to being well wearable and incorporating an extraordinary magic. The centre part of this cross is high lustre polished giving this piece of jewellery with a three dimensional look. It shows minor traces of having been worn. Our restorer provided this wonderful piece with a loop in 14 carat yellow gold, which allowed attaching this decorative pendant to a long onyx necklace with end cups and spring ring in 14 carat yellow gold.
