Joseph Hopman


Hopman Jewelers began in 1960 with Joseph Hopman. A watchmaker and jeweler by trade, Joseph came from the Netherlands and began with a small store at Easy Shopping Place in Elkhart Indiana. His wife, Mary, did the pearl and bead restringing, which we continue to offer today. Hard work, quality products and excellent service built a solid reputation that Hopman Jewelers continues to maintain.

Patrick Hopman


In 1967, Joseph began educating his son Patrick in the art of gems and jewelry. Patrick learned the business and mastered the art of the goldsmith. By 1973, Patrick was a licensed Indiana Watchmaker. In 1981, he received his Diamond Certificate from the Gemological Institute of America. When Joseph retired in 1984, Patrick was ready to take Hopman Jewelers into the future.

With business flourishing, Patrick’s wife, Eileen, became a co-owner in 1987. Eileen’s experience and expertise brought new facets to Hopman’s through custom design and jewelry repair.

In 1996, Hopman’s moved from its Easy Shopping Place location to the highly visible corner of Main St and Jackson Blvd in Downtown Elkhart. With the current space, Hopman Jewelers is one of the largest jewelry stores in northern Indiana and southern Michigan.

Hopman Jewelers still maintains its stellar reputation within the community. Patrick and Eileen’s open spirits attract new customers and familiar faces to Hopman’s every day. In addition, numerous employees give Hopman Jewelers a family approach to business. The knowledgeable staff meets the needs of the customers by offering in-house repairs, custom jewelry design and creations, jewelry insurance appraisals as well as fine jewelry and traditional gifts.

With its solid community values and outstanding dedication to the customers, Hopman Jewelers is poised to remain a leading example of excellence well into the future.
