This is a great shop!! Loads of lovely Whitby Jet (and other stone) jewellery to chose from. Problem is it is just TOO hard to chose and could quite easily spend a fortune!! I purchased a beautiful necklace, I love it, and although it cost me a small fortune I'm so glad I made the choice. Staff lovely and helpful.... More

Have made several purchases here and have always been pleased with what I've bought. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I damaged a ring I'd bought there and it was repaired very much to my satisfaction. The fact that I live abroad was not a problem and the ring was posted to me after repair. Alterations I've had done... More

I love W. Hamond shop as I have a weakness for jet jewellery, and a lovely husband who doesn't complain about my 'habit'! However, the tea room upstairs is another really good reason to visit! It's probably a little more expensive than some of the other places in Whitby to have a drink and rest aching feet, but it's well... More

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... More

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.

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.

I found the coffee shop by chance, as a regular visitor to Whitby I had gazed in the shop window many, many times but did not notice that they had a coffee shop upstairs. It was only as I had (for the first time) decided to go in to have a closer look at some jewellery that I spotted the... More
