Firstly, take NO notice of the proposed delivery date on the website when placing an order. The item that was ordered was proposed to be delivered within 24 hours, the day after ordering i receive an e-mail stating the item needs to be made which would take 3 days. (Don't get me wrong, the fact the item is hand crafted... More

I had my heart set on some Whitby jet for a special anniversary gift. We had always admired the various shops displaying it but to be perfectly honest W Hammond is the creme de la creme of shops. The young lady assistant was so kind, helpful and sweet without being pushy at all. She allowed me to try on the... More

It was my first visit to Whitby and I wanted to buy a piece of jet jewellery. I wasn`t sure where to find the shop but I went down the steps and there it was! A high quality shop with very helpful and friendly staff. I bought a pair of earrings - lovely quality, beautifully packed up for me with... More

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
