“The Original Jet Shop”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

A fantastic jewellery shop specialising in Whitby Jet (mysterious, black, bold & beautiful!) since 1860. Excellent and affordable range of eye catching modern & period style jewellery crafted from this unusual organic gemstone. There's also a fascinating workshop inside the shop that enables you to see the the jewellery being made. Excellent well informed and friendly staff.
As we were overseas visitors we were able to claim the VAT back after filling out a simple form and visiting the VAT reclaim office at Heathrow...that's a 20% discount!

“Tea shop above”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

The shop itself is lovely, but we went to the tea room upstairs. Excellent, friendly service and the food was wonderful. Very reasonably priced. You can easily miss this tea room as the entrance is through the shop, but we would really recomend it. We'll be going again.

“Real Whitby Jet”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

It's important to ensure that the jet you buy in Whitby is really from there and this shop guarantees to sell you just that. You'll find a splendid selection of Whitby jet creations at several places in the town, but this is probably the best.
