Celtic Drop Earrings
Our range of Celtic Whitby jet earrings are handcrafted from the highest quality locally gathered Whitby jet and .925 Sterling silver.
The Celts lived during the Iron Age and were the first people to use iron in jewellery making. They took their inspiration from their culture and from nature, so their designs sometimes included animal shapes and they never incorporated straight lines in their patterns. Instead, they were circular and interweaving with spirals, twists and loops. Celtic jewellery made from gold, silver and bronze have also been discovered. The distinct Celtic style of jewellery is still very popular today. Here at Abbey Jet we offer a selection of Whitby jet pendants, necklaces, drop earrings, bracelets, brooches and crosses, which combine the intricate spiral and interweaving Celtic style of pattern with the deep black lustre of Whitby jet and .925 silver.
