About Copeland Jewelers
Owner Clay Copeland is not really a jewelry salesman. He's what we call in the industry a Bench Jeweler, working with all facets of jewelry designing, making and repairing. He started in the jewelry business in 1970 in El Paso Texas. Moving to Austin in 1976 and starting his own store in 1983 in the mall gave Clay much needed perspective for the future of Copeland Jewelers. Clay now says, "I decided over 20 years ago in Highland Mall where there were 20 other jewelry stores where a customer would be seeing the same thing at all 20, that I was not going that route." Copeland's now in Davenport Village on Hwy. 360, has become known for their more unique fine jewelry pieces and don't miss the Vintage/Estate & Consignment collection. Copeland Jewelers has a reputation for diamond jewelry you won't see in most other stores and the finest quality [or the most delicious] gemstones saturated in gorgeous colors set into inspiring designs. "There are so many beautiful gemstones, diamonds and jewelry designs out there. I couldn't possibly limit my customers to a few corporate designers", says Clay who has a knack for buying [or finding?] jewelry that people love and at an excellent value. "I think I got my eye from my grandfather who was the design furrier his entire adult life for the famous Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Working in his day with customers like [Grace Kelley]."
After over 25 years serving Austin we have seen many stores and jewelry designers go by the wayside. When we first opened our doors we were the "go to" shop for many of the other stores in Austin for jewelry work. Nowadays, other than stringing jobs and occasional favors for other stores, we only serve our own customers. Copeland's business is built on honesty, integrity, value and providing unsurpassed customer service. Most of his staff has worked with Clay for over 20 years. So you know you're likely to see the same people [or smiling faces] anytime you bring jewelry in for service or want to make a purchase.
We specialize in custom jewelry making including all aspects from design to wax model making to casting in precious metals and finally stone setting. Clay and his one other bench jeweler Martin, have combined over 35 years of experience repairing and making jewelry.

We've staked our reputation on it, right here in Austin, for over 25 years.
If we don't have it, we can find it. If we can't find it, we can make it.
"We bought our 10-year anniversary ring from Copeland Jewelers. I explained to Clay Copeland what I wanted it to look like, and he made it even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I absolutely love my ring, and it was made more precious to me by great people at a great store. Thanks to Clay and Debra Copeland of Copeland Jewelers."
