Hand carved Whitby jet ball top cocktail rings with hand made 18K gold granulation and champagne diamonds set onto an 18K gold band. Stunning subtle contrast between the matte finish and the sparkle of the diamonds as they catch the light. Each hand made 18K gold granule has a peg which is embedded down in to the jet. These rings can be worn individually or stacked. Whitby jet is a 180 million-year old fossilized wood. It is primarily associated with Victorian mourning jewellery popularized by Queen Victoria. DIMENSIONS Diameter of spheres 8MM, 16MM and 22MM; width of band 2MM MATERIALS Whitby jet, champagne diamonds, 18K gold Jacqueline Cullen is an English jewellery designer specialising in contemporary Whitby jet. Jacqueline has developed innovative processes and formats that celebrate rather than disguise the inherent flaws and inclusions of Whitby jet allowing the natural beauty of the material to speak for itself removed from connotations of death, grief and morbidity. Jacqueline is inspired by dramatic acts of nature, a placid sky ripped open by a slash of lightening, a volcano erupting, a cliff edge left jagged from erosion. Hiatuses inform her aesthetics and the interruption or breaking up of a bold, fluid form is central to her work where fractures, fissures and crevices release a luxurious cascade of textured gold or glittering diamonds. Jacqueline Cullen is the only person working with Whitby jet in a non-traditional and design led way and she remains committed to introducing this ancient and sensual material to a contemporary audience. Jacqueline Cullen Jewellery has been brought to Australia by BECKER MINTY and is exclusively available from our stores. ABOUT WHITBY JET: Whitby jet is a prehistoric black fossilised wood (ca.180 million years old); it is the whole trunk of Araucaria, the ancestor to the Monkey Puzzle Tree. Used for adornment for thousands of years it is mainly associated with Victorian mourning jewellery. The trend for wearing jet jewellery was started by Queen Victoria in response to the death of her consort Prince Albert in 1861. Mined during its heyday, jet is now rare. Jacqueline Cullen uses only the best quality jet from Whitby; she purchases her supply from a man who abseils down the cliffs to get in to the disused Victorian mines and caves on the Yorkshire coast in north-east England.
