About Thomas Cooper Jewelry
Thomas Cooper embarked on his journey in the jewelry industry during high school as a part-time retail jewelry salesperson. Motivated by this early exposure, he moved to New York City to pursue a formal education in jewelry design at the esteemed Fashion Institute of Technology. Thomas gained notable recognition as the recipient of the Van Cleef & Arpels Graduate Design Award.
"My first post-graduation role involved working as a designer for a well-established fine jewelry manufacturer. Recognizing the importance of hands-on experience at the bench to enhance my competitiveness in the industry, I actively pursued and secured an apprenticeship with a distinguished platinum shop. This opportunity allowed me to learn the intricate craft of fine jewelry from the ground up." — Thomas Cooper
Perfecting his skills as a bench jeweler within some of New York City's finest jewelry workshops, Thomas learned the traditional European method of meticulously handcrafting precious gemstone jewelry.
In 1985, Thomas Cooper established his first workshop located in the renowned diamond district of New York City. Specializing in bespoke jewelry design and manufacturing, Thomas focused his efforts on delivering premium services to esteemed fine jewelry establishments and private clients throughout the United States.
Today, Thomas Cooper continues to create timeless fine jewelry handcrafted in platinum and high karat gold. The jewelry collections showcase ethically sourced diamonds, pearls, gemstones, and birthstones, encompassing an array of meticulously designed pieces such as earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and cufflinks.
