Jet Jewelry: As old as time.
Briefly, thousands of years ago the jet stone was thought to be magical. Our ancestors used the stones as a protector from harm. It was a gem that brought the bearer good luck and good health. “Artists” carved amulets and statues for protection and good luck. Why not? It seems like those are things virtually everyone seeks. In fact, it is said that Jet is one of the first gems to be discovered by man.
Historians write that Stone Age man carved the stones into amulets and talisman, believing the stones had electrical properties that endowed them with magical powers and protections. Modern times (relatively speaking) saw jet being used for rosary beads and for other ecclesiastical purposes.
