150 Years of Exceptional Service & Value
Our story began in 1869 with goldsmith James Preston. Over 150 years later, and with four showrooms, in Guildford, Leeds and Wilmslow, our heritage forms the basis of our values and passion for fine jewellery.
At Prestons every member of our team is chosen first and foremost for their warmth of personality and their genuine passion for representing the finest watch brands in Rolex, Patek Philippe and TUDOR, as well as our fine jewellery and bridal collections.
We hope that when you walk into a Prestons showroom you can feel the difference, from the environment, to the friendly and relaxed welcome and the desire to help. Our showrooms understand that it is the detail that can make the difference, from the ribbon on the box to the integrity of the individual who is offering you advice.
Over the years generations of families have become customers of Prestons and many have become friends. Our showrooms look forward to making new ones.Why Prestons
"I love store design; that is my passion. I came from a very small jewellery background 40 years ago and to be able to open the showrooms we have today is fantastic. I have the desire and passion for what our showrooms do and believe each client’s visit has to be an all-encompassing experience."Karl Massey, Managing Director
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.Our Showrooms
