About Thomas Cooper Jewelry

Thomas Cooper's jewelry career started in high school as a part-time retail jewelry salesperson in his hometown of Cherry Hill, NJ. Inspired by the experience, Thomas moved to New York City to study jewelry design at the world-renowned Fashion Institute of Technology. Thomas was the recipient of the prestigious Van Cleef & Arpels Graduate Design Award.

“My first job after graduation was working as a designer for a well-known high-end fine jewelry manufacturer. I realized immediately that working only as a designer, without the experience of working at the bench, would make me less competitive in my career. I searched for and found a platinum shop willing to take me on as an apprentice. They taught me the craft of fine jewelry from the ground up.” – Thomas Cooper

Mastering his craft working as a bench jeweler for the top jewelry workshops in New York City, Thomas learned the traditional way to properly handcraft diamond and precious gemstone jewelry.

In 1986 Thomas struck out on his own operating out of the corner of his bedroom in New York City. Six months later Thomas Cooper opened his first workshop in New York City's famed diamond district. Thomas concentrated in providing custom jewelry design and manufacturing services to independent fine jewelry stores and private clients across the United States.

Today Thomas Cooper creates classic fine jewelry, handcrafted in platinum and high karat gold. Jewelry collections feature ethically sourced diamonds, pearls, gemstones, birthstones, and consists of earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and cufflinks. Thomas Cooper Jewelry is available direct to clientele and online at
