About Us

Taber Studios create refined jewelry collections reflecting simple sophistication and elegance, while promoting the most sustainable, and ethical, jewelry making practices currently available. Using 18k Fairmined gold, recycled silver, recycled diamonds, Fairtrade sapphires, lab grown Moissanite diamonds, and 14k gold-filled wire, each one of our pieces is carefully designed and hand-crafted so that you can be proud to support the development of cleaner studio practices and the most ethically sourceable materials on the planet.

The simple elegance of our jewelry can be worn to compliment the most formal attire or to highlight distinctive everyday styles with equal grace and beauty.   With a combined 70 years of jewelry making experience, our artisan craftsmen combine their sculptural knowledge with a careful understanding of the human form to give you a piece that will optimize and enhance your natural beauty. By combining recycled, repurposed and responsibly mined materials, with the safest metallurgical techniques, our pieces further exhibit an unparalleled beauty both inside and out.

Founder Bob Taber says about the work of Taber Studios: “When you look at each individual piece, as well as all of our work taken together, it is the visual counterpart of going to a classical concert and hearing a pianist playing a sonata. That's because we work in the manner of a Renaissance Craft Guild, where the artist/craftsman will work, not just for years, but for decades, using the same basic hand tools and hand techniques, and slowly developing and evolving their designs and their skills over time. In both cases, the artist has to develop excellent skills in their hands, and sensitivities in their souls, and then transpose these skills and sensitivities into their music and their art.”

From our hands to yours…Enjoy!

Martin Taber - Jeweler, Designer, Owner

Martin Taber received his B.A. in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Cruz in 1995. After a lifetime of involvement in the family business, in 1997 he took to the jewelry trade full-time to develop his interests in sculptural design and architectural form.   The integrity of crafting directly in the metals and working so closely with his customers has led Martin to renew his passion for the environment in his new signature collection of ecologically inspired, haute couture jewelry - Martin Taber Designs. Additionally, he has made significant changes to the methods of production and acquisition of materials to reflect Taber Studios' revised mission to become a leader in the move to help clean up the jewelry industry.
