Boutique

We open our doors every morning, seven days a week, on to the much loved, cobbled Church Street in Whitby. You’ll find us at number 145 selling our contemporary pieces of Whitby Jet. Nothing quite beats meeting our customers in person and sharing our love for the British stone with you all. It’s important to have a strong online presence yet being able to admire, feel and try on our jewellery is just the best.

Our Former Name

 

If you’ve been following our journey for a while, you may remember our former name - The Whitby Wyrm. It was originally chosen because of its link to Whitby’s heritage however, we made the move to The Whitby Jet Store to send a clearer message especially to those who didn’t know us. We felt there is no confusion as to what we sell with our current name yet still nods to our town's heritage. 

You may not have heard of the tale that inspired our first name. Wrym is a dragon that lived in the mountains. The people of Whitby were scared of the beast wishing for its presence to be gone. The Wrym did not like it when a group of Benedictine monks built Whitby Abbey. The dragon tried to destroy the monastery before it was finished, attacking the building regularly. The monks prayed for this to end, with the dragon banished to the sea. The story goes that the beast tries to destroy the abbey every seven years.
