A Short History...

Coppola e Toppo pieces are some of the most sought after by collectors of vintage costume jewellery. It is certainly easy to see why - the craftsmanship, eye for detail and design technique empolyed in production of their jewellery is outstanding. Sister and brother, Lyda Toppo and Bruno Coppola founded the business in 1946. Their success was sealed when design houses Dior, Schiaparelli and Balenciaga commissioned the pair to produce pieces for them. Also, their home town of Milan was increasing its status as a fashion capital and this saw Coppola e Toppo rise to revered heights in fashion circles.
