Toveco is focused on colored gemstones from New Hampshire. The gemstones are then fabricated into fine jewelry. On average it takes about two years to process raw gem material to a finished jewelry item.
Toveco’s gemstone material, Aquamarine, Heliodor, Golden Beryl, Smoky & Rose Quartz are primarily from the Tripp Mine located in Alstead, NH. Toveco owned and operated this mine from spring 2002 to the fall of 2018. Other New Hampshire Aquamarine is from the Palermo Mine, Grafton, NH. Toveco also has a good selection of other USA gemstone material, Tourmaline, Sapphire, Amethyst and Garnet. The gem materials are then cut into gemstones, cabochons and beads by Toveco and contract lapidary cutters.
Toveco also prospects for New Hampshire Gold. This gold is alloyed and cast in to jewelry findings by Toveco. The gold findings are used with New Hampshire Gemstones to create a true “New Hampshire Made” jewelry item.
