Bold and modern, dramatic and sculptural, these earrings by Jacqueline Cullen make a sophisticated, confident style impact. The smooth, matte black discs of Whitby jet are edged with shimmering black diamonds. A perfectly, hand-wrought crescent is cut out from the top echoing the curve of the 18K yellow gold ear wires. Each closure is set with a black diamond to give these earrings an added element of interest. Wear them dressed up or with any casual attire for a statement-making pair of earrings.

London - Using a Whitby jet for the basis of her jewelry collection, Jacqueline Cullen is inspired by the dramatic acts of nature. Lightening, jagged rock and angular formations inform each hand-made piece. Combining the prehistoric black fossil with diamonds and gold celebrate and disguise the natural, inherent flaws and inclusions in the stone resulting in a striking, dramatic look. Formally trained in London as a jewelry designer, she found Whitby jet - most commonly associated with Victorian mourning jewelry - a way to incorporate material from disused mines and ancient caves. Central to her aesthetic is bold, fluid form where fractures, fissures and crevices release a luxurious cascade of textured gold or shimmering diamonds.
