Tony Malmed

Tony Malmed’s path to designing and making jewelry is a story like no other story. Tony traveled through and traded in 25 countries by the time that he was 27 years old. He saw the ancient ways in which jewelry was made, and later incorporated these practices into his own work. Continuing to travel for another 20 years, the experiences Tony had on his world journey, together with his meditation practice, infuse and inform the aesthetic properties of his exquisite collections. The proportions, the textures, and the play of colors in his pieces draw from the beauty and mystique of places like India, Italy, and Japan—and from the understanding that truth is beauty and beauty is truth.

Tony’s jewelry is comprised of repurposed 18kt gold and sterling silver and stones of the highest quality, including moonstones, Australian opals, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and tourmalines of different shades and colors. American turquoises, Afghani lapis, and Sugilite from the Kalahari join these wonderfully magical stones. He also works with rare materials such as native copper, black slate with pyrite inclusions, and opals that formed in petrified trees millions of years ago and are left as close to their natural states as the jewelry making process allows for them to be.

Tony Malmed Jewelry is designed and made by hand in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
