Growing up in India, Toby discovered his commitment to life in balance. Today TOBY POMEROY™ is a world leader in environmentally sustainable and socially responsible jewelry. The launch of certified recycled Gold and Silver set a new standard, defining ethical luxury in ways never seen previously. The last decade TOBY POMEROY has worked to purchase directly from small scale miners, with a special emphasis on mines operating without the use of toxic mercury.
Inspired by the patient craftspeople of India and touched by the natural beauty of the environment, Toby became fascinated with nature-influenced design. Today, TOBY POMEROY studio is a handful of talented artists who, fascinated with texture and form, live to work with their hands. Their commitment to live, learn and create in harmony has the artisans forging both non-traceable reclaimed metals and source-certified, Fairmined TRUE GOLD™ metals into graceful forms inspired by the simplicity of nature. While technologies have come and gone in the over forty years that Toby Pomeroy has designed jewelry, his studio continues to pursue the purity of the ancient craft. Like their process, the studio’s designs are timeless, refined and beautiful.
Toby is also the founder of Mercury Free Mining, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating the use of mercury in gold mining. www.mercuryfreemining.org
