Established in 2012, Thorpe & Brown is owned by Jo Thorpe, a Designer & Goldsmith with over 15 years experience.

Since Jo first opened the doors of the shop in her hometown of Burbage, near Hinckley in Leicestershire, she has built a team of Jewellery experts. First came Caroline, who has been Manager of T&B since 2013. We were then joined by Rachel, who started out as our apprentice followed by Annie, our goldsmith-in-training, and most recently Deb, our graphic designer. We also have Jayne, who takes care of the accounts.

From Engagement & Wedding Rings, to Repairs & Remodelling, Valuations & Teaching Workshops, Thorpe & Brown is truly unique.

We believe in providing a simplified and advisory shopping experience, led by your requirements, and changing the way people shop for Bespoke Jewellery and Engagement Rings.

We offer advice & expertise every step of the way, regarding precious metals including silver, gold, palladium & platinum, and use ethically sourced diamonds, gemstones & metals.

Jo Thorpe

Since discovering a passion for jewellery making whilst travelling in Australia 18 years ago, Jo has wanted her own shop. Now, with the help of the team, that dream is a reality. Specialising in tailored designs, award winning designer Jo makes the individual pieces that Thorpe & Brown is renowned for, and can offer expert advice on Gemstones & Diamonds.

Caroline Sykes

This is Caroline, our Manager and top Plate spinner! Having managed the shop for Jo from the very early days, there isn’t much that Caroline doesn’t know about Thorpe and Brown, and this is why she’s our first point of contact. With over 15 years experience in all things jewellery, from repairs to commissions to workshops to wedding rings, Caroline is always on hand.


Deb loves to spend her days colouring in. We can't possibly let her just do that all day, so instead she takes care of all of our Graphic Design needs, oversees the smooth running of our website, and coordinates all our marketing. She also makes a mean cup of coffee.

Joining Thorpe and Brown in 2015 as a Sales Consultant Rachel quickly developed a passion for Jewellery and began an apprenticeship here with us.
