More about Simpson's Jet of Whitby

Simpson’s Jet are makers of fine quality Whitby Jet Jewellery. All jet is gathered and hand-crafted locally in Simpson’s Jet’s very own Whitby workshop.

Born and bred in Whitby, Derek Simpson (owner) takes great pride in being one of a small minority left working locally who gather Whitby jet in the area, and hand-crafting it in to rare and beautiful pieces, continuing a family tradition. His Grandfather, Henry Simpson was also a jet jewellery maker (recorded in census of Whitby jet workers from 1899), so it’s in the family genes.

Earrings, Pendants, Cufflinks, Lockets, bracelets, bangles, jet hearts, rings, pendant and earring sets, tie pins – just a few of the kind of exquisite pieces you’ll find in Simpson’s Jet Shops.
