To celebrate the launch of the Myne London Foundation, Co-Founders and sisters Fiona Wellington and Kate Murray Gordos will host an inaugural event in London on March 19, 2022, to bring together members of the gem trade and raise vital funds to continue empowering women and girls in Pakistan.
Fiona Wellington says: “At Myne London, we train and employ a 75% female workforce. Supplying designer brands and customers with traceable emeralds is the channel through which we empower these women. This is the ethos behind our business. Access to education is an important topic in Pakistan and was highlighted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their official tour of the country in 2019. Our goal at the Myne London Foundation is to offer a hand of support to those who want or need it within our emerald mining workforce.”
Myne London offers a traceable route to market for emeralds from Swat Valley, Pakistan, whilst providing opportunities for women local to the region within the gemstone trade. The business focuses on promoting women’s empowerment through access to education, training and skilled employment supported by the region’s high-quality emerald melee, as well as the creation of Swat Valley emerald bespoke jewellery and collaborations with international jewellery brands and designers. 2
Fiona Wellington and Kate Murray Gordos spent their childhood in Pakistan and have first-hand experience of the region. In 2018, they worked with their gemmologist Charles Evans to determine the quality of emeralds mined in the little-known Swat Valley region and developed a sustainable and responsible method for presenting these gemstones to the world.
The Myne London Foundation aspires to expand further and banish the limiting factors that prevent the Myne London emerald community from achieving their educational needs.
