The home of Whitby Jet Research

The Ebor Jetworks Ltd is a small independent retailer based in a beautiful C17th workshop in the heart of Whitby's historic east side. Owned by Sarah and David Steele all our jewellery is handcrafted on the premises and demonstrations of jet polishing can be viewed six days a week. Sarah graduated with an Honours Degree in Geology from Durham University in 1992 and in 2013 she successfully completed a Diploma in Gemmology at the Gem-A in London and was awarded the prestigious Fellow of the Gemmological Society status making her the only accredited  gemmologist working in Whitby. She is also a Diamond Fellow of the society. Sarah's time is now spent between jewellery manufacture and research into the jet group of gemstones, and with the backing of the Gemmological Society is now working to correctly classify the jet gemstone group for the first time in its 10,000 years of manufacturing history. David is himself a skilled craftsman with some 10 years jewellery making and lapidary experience. We aim to produce handcrafted, high quality and most importantly, interesting contemporary jewellery. We guarantee that we only use the best quality Hard Whitby Jet collected from local beaches in our jewellery. We do not believe that foreign materials should ever be used as a substitute to our world class British Whitby Jet.
