The ginkgo leaf represents longevity, balance, strength, hope and good health. With its unique and beautiful fan shape it’s understandably the subject of a great deal of art. The Ginkgo Leaf Earrings are no exception. This hand-hammered earring is an interpretation of one of Asia’s oldest symbols.
In 2006 Toby Pomeroy sparked a revolution in the jewelry industry by creating a line of recycled metals. It all began while Toby was fly fishing for steelhead in a favorite Oregon coastal river, and had a thought: Why not ask my refiner to purify previously used scrap gold and silver separately from newly mined metals, then create jewelry from these reclaimed metals, giving my clients ethically sourced gold and silver?
The result was “EcoGold”, and “EcoSilver”. As well, Toby Pomeroy uses jewels that are exclusively sourced from suppliers with transparent supply chains. These exquisite precious and semi-precious gemstones are mined and faceted in facilities that pay living wages, and promote the health and safety of all workers.
These wonderful EcoGold Ginkgo Leaf Earrings are a fine example of recycled metal, fair-mined jewels, and old world craftsmanship methods that make Toby Pomeroy so unique. They have embraced beliefs that we here at Brown Goldsmiths truly feel to be important, and because of this we are very proud to offer not simply the Ginkgo Leaf Earrings, but much, much more.
