John Coppin began his career as a design engineer, and moved into Jewellery when a close friend was looking for an apprentice. Together they crafted jewellery for many London stores until Ann and John felt it was time to move into the country with the family, and set up a workshop in Bradford on Avon. From here they carried out repairs and commissions, a business which grew quickly enabling the vision of an artizan showroom with workshop to become reality.

Coppins opened in Corsham in October of 1982, with a modest stock and staff it has grown to become one of Wiltshire leading jewellers, with a reputation for first class customer service, many customers still return from the initial days in Bradford. The team of craftsmen now headed by Daisy Coppin, a qualified diamond and gemstone expert, continues to produce beautifully crafted jewellery, still under Johns watchful eye.


Our workshop is equipped to make the full range of jewellery, from classic to contemporary pieces. We use traditional methods to melt gold and forge metal, techniques used by jewellers for centuries.

Our team is skilled in modern techniques too, regularly using equipment such as laser welding, microscope and computer-aided-design. So, whether you’re looking for a traditional locket or a designer ring, we have the know-how and the equipment to see your concept through to creation.
Annual visits to international trade exhibitions, ensure the range of styles you will see at Coppins is unique. From Hong Kong to Basel, the inspirations and variety of jewellery seen is unsurpassed, from which we take elements to create our own designs.

At Coppins we strive to ensure all of our jewellery and gem stones are sourced from ethically sound and sustainable sources. To this end we ensure our Diamonds are mined through the Kimberly process which is a joint governments, industry and civil society initiative to stem the flow of conflict diamonds – rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. The process imposes extensive requirements on its members to certify it’s shipments are conflict-free. Our coloured Gem suppliers travel the world and buy direct from mining companies who are committed to social and environmental objectives.
