About Us

Thorpe & Brown, established in 2012, was set up by Jo Thorpe - a Jewellery Designer & Goldsmith with over 20 years experience, and a passion for creating personal & specially crafted jewellery.

We have a design studio, workshop & showroom in the heart of a conservation area in the beautiful village of Burbage, Leicestershire.

We are open to the public on Wednesday to Saturday from 9.30am until 5pm for appointments, drop ins & browsing.

The rest of the week we work behind the scenes, but we are available to call or email.

    No repair job is too small. From chain repairs and stone replacement to complex alterations, here at T&B we offer a full range of repair services. With laser technology we can even tackle jobs that other jewellers won't.

  • Salvage

    Why not put broken or unworn jewellery to use? If you're not looking to remodel your jewellery we can offer cash for gold.
