“Today, as the large lathes and dust-filled rooms of Victorian times have been replaced by modern equipment and a healthy working environment, W Hamond’s craftsmen still combine age old techniques with modern technology to keep the traditional craft alive.
“Sometimes the size and shape of the raw gemstone material, collected from local beaches, dictates the finished appearance of a piece of jewellery. This can be seen in the unique items produced by W Hamond, whose designers and craftsmen may take an extra-large and perfect piece of raw material and make it into a single, stunning pendant or brooch rather than cutting it to make several smaller items.”
And as if marvelling at their one-of-a-kind creations was not enough, W Hamond also offers another reason to pay their Whitby shop a visit. The building houses its very own tea rooms, which have been serving up delicious snacks, meals and drinks since 2010, as well as hosting regular events such as musical entertainment, educational talks and even ghost walks.
Conveniently located in the town centre and featuring a wide range of fantastic products, a trip to W Hamond offers visitors a shopping experience unlike any other. Be sure to stop by when you’re next in Whitby.
