Jet is a 180 million-year-old fossilized wood that is primarily associated with the Victorian mourning jewelry popularized by Queen Victoria. Considered a gemstone, Jet has been used in jewelry making as far back as 10,000 BC but is quite rare today, with Jacqueline being one of only a few designers working with it to create art. Being hand carved, each piece varies from one to the other and is therefore unique.
