A vision to craft ethical fine art jewellery
Coral Covey was founded and established in 2014 in Munich by Australian jewellery designer Laura Deakin.
In November 2017, after living and working in Munich for over 13 years, Laura re-located back to her hometown of Melbourne.
The name, Coral Covey, is the unity of Laura’s two grandmothers, Coral McKissick and Gladys Covey, who were both important influences in the designer’s life, and taught her the importance of caring for her community and environment.
Coral Covey is a business committed to sustainable jewellery practices. It is Laura’s goal to continue making a positive environmental difference within her field of bespoke art.
