Victorian Whitby Jet Cameo Bracelet


This expandable bracelet is a wonderful example of Whitby Jet jewelry.  It is strung on elastic, which was typical. The face of the bracelet has a cameo of a lovely lady in profile.  The carving on her hairpiece shows the meticulous work and craftsmanship and the twisted rope design around the cameo and bracelet adds to the whole effect.  The cameo measures 2″ long and 1 1/2″ wide.  It is in excellent condition.  C. 1860
