Born in 1915, Lyda Coppola was famous for her expertise in the use of crystal. She opened her atelier in 1946 in Milan. After her marriage, she added her husband’s surname to hers and formed the Coppola e Toppo label.

Lyda Coppola reaped her 1st success with Schiaparelli and Jacques Fath.

The house then strove to translate into jewels the typical style of each couturier. For Valentino, she treated specific materials such as crystal baguette and metal rods, for Ken Scott or Pucci, plastic pearls tuned to the dazzling colours of the printed fabrics. Coppola e Toppo ceased its activities after the death of Lyda Coppola in 1986.
