Since 1869

Throughout the decades Prestons have helped create many special moments and thousands of happy memories. So many couples have started their journey together with a Prestons diamond engagement ring and for many years our original showroom in Bolton was known as the Diamond Centre Of The North for very good reason.

We understand that every story is unique and that every piece of fine jewellery is chosen for the special occasions in your life. Today, we continue to create exquisite jewellery designs that will be cherished forever.

Jewellery Design

Our talented designers create jewellery suites for our Wilmslow, Leeds and Guildford showrooms as well as for personal appointments or commissions. Our showrooms believe that our jewellery collections should be unique and that no two pieces should ever be the same.

Our jewellery designers work in conjunction with our clients to design a piece to mark an occasion, to bring life to creative ideas or simply as a celebration. From design to execution, from hand-sketches to casts, this service allows our clients the opportunity to design, create or recommission personal pieces of jewellery.

A Family Business Since 1869

Our Story

In 1869 James Preston opened what would eventually become one of the largest jewellery showrooms in the UK but it was his niece, the pioneering Gertrude Duckworth, who grew the business and opened in 1912 the famous showroom on the corner of Deansgate, Bolton.

Her Grandson Gordon was an innovative retailer whose television campaigns through the 1970s and 80s made the business nationally famous. His slogan, Its Always Worth A Journey To The Diamond Centre Of The North, brought couples from all over the country for their engagement and wedding rings.

Today, still family owned, Prestons' showrooms are located in Guildford, Leeds and Wilmslow, partnering Rolex, Patek Philippe and TUDOR, and showcasing the fine jewellery and the bridal collections we have always been famous for.
