You’ll find us on the famous, cobbled Church Street selling unique, contemporary Whitby Jet designs as well as an impressive range of jewellery and watch brands. We’ve been at number 145 for quite a while creating a strong identity that honours the history of Jet whilst catering for a modern audience. We're well known for supplying genuine Whitby Jet that is naturally sourced from the North Yorkshire coastline. It's time to get to know us so much better.
The Whitby Jet Store Name
You might remember us as The Whitby Wyrm before we became The Whitby Jet Store. The original name was chosen due to its close connection to our town’s heritage however, we decided we wanted a clearer message for those passing the boutique. There is now no confusion, the title of our store immediately explains what we do whilst still honouring the rich heritage of the town.
For those who are unfamiliar with the tale, wyrm is a dragon that lived comfortably in the mountains that overlooked the town. However, the inhabitants of Whitby were pleading to be saved from the cruel beast. A group of Benedictine monks came to their rescue by building Whitby Abbey, which did not go down well with the wyrm who tried to attack and destroy the monastery before it was finished. The prayers of the monks resulted in the dragon being banished to the sea and legend has it that every seven years he tries to bring the abbey down.
