Bronze Age Jet Necklaces, 2200 to 1900 BCE, Weston Hall Museum and Gallery, Sheffield

 

It is highly likely that the second and third necklaces were made by the same craftsperson; they were buried with a woman and a child respectively. The first necklace comprises jet, shale and bone and was found in a barrow near to Arbor Low in Derbyshire.

All three pieces are finely crafted and may have been heirlooms. Some of the beads are several generations old.
