150 Years of Exceptional Service

Our History

In 1869, James Preston, a goldsmith by trade, built his watches and jewellery showroom on the corner of Deansgate, Bolton. It was the beginning of a business that was to become a legendary name in the jewellery trade. 150 years on, Prestons continues to offer the finest products and the same exceptional service.

Our Rich Heritage

For many, especially in the North West where we were founded, Prestons is their family jeweller, where generations have bought the most personal items of jewellery, wedding rings and engagement rings. Prestons became nationally famous through the 1970’s and 80’s for their national TV campaigns which promoted the unforgettable strapline ‘It’s always worth a journey to the Diamond Centre of the North’, and sold more engagement rings and wedding rings than any other jeweller in the United Kingdom.
