he Pomar family has been working in traditional Ibicencan jewellery ever since 1850, when Elisa’s great grandfather was known on the island as “the King’s jeweller” for supplying Alfonso XVIII’s lovers with pieces of jewellery. There is already evidence in Eivissa’s historical archive of a Pomar who was working as a silversmith in the neighbourhood of Ibiza known as La Marina in the 17th century.
Elisa Pomar studied gemmology and is the fourth generation of a family that has always devoted itself to traditional Ibicencan jewellery, a job that has earned it the Gold Medal of Merit in 2016 and the Empresa Revelación prize awarded by PIMEEF in recognition of its constant work updating traditional Ibicencan jewellery.
In a world traditionally dominated by men, Elisa Pomar has carved out a niche for herself among the leading national and international jewellery companies. The designer is present at the main international fashion shows and in publications such as Pasarela Adlib, where she showed her latest collections accompanied by the creations of Maya Hansen, Costura España or in such prestigious magazines as Vanity Fair.
A fervent defender of the neighbourhood of La Marina in Ibiza Town
The love story between Elisa Pomar and the neighbourhood of La Marina emerged very early and that’s because the designer was born in the same building where she currently has her shop, which is one of the oldest ones in the neighbourhood.
You can acquire her collections in her two shops on Calle Castellar and in her online store. Elisa Pomar has researched and recovered the old pieces of jewellery that women hid away during the Civil War. Using those designs she has brought pieces of jewellery back to the present day, pieces that are relevant and have come back to life again, more fashionable than ever, thanks to the passion with which they are regarded by such important figures as the designers, Dolce & Gabanna, who has been using them for years in all of their international fashion shows and advertising campaigns.
What is more, Elisa Pomar’s jewellery lives on in its purest form, adorning the costumes used in baile payés, (farmers’ dances) that are typical in folklore on the Pitiusas Islands.
