We are your local independent family jewellers, bringing you fine jewellery and an extensive collection of watches for those milestone events and memories to be made. We want shopping with us to be an enjoyable and relaxing experience, a sentiment we have held for the last 120 years. While our store may have expanded over the years and changed in appearance, our values and warm traditional service have remained the same.
Every single diamond and piece of jewellery that we sell in store is hand selected by the Johnson family, as we visit suppliers and shows throughout the year to bring you jewellery that you won’t find in other high street jewellers. We take pride in looking for that unique piece that you will take pleasure in wearing for years.
Our wonderful, loyal customers have made our business what we are today. With your continued support, we will continue to offer great customer service and beautiful made jewellery and watches for many more decades to come.
Founded by Harold Johnson in 1897 with humble beginnings, we are proud to be celebrating our 120th anniversary. Our shop was originally located in the Abbey Green area of Nuneaton, before moving to its present location in Queens Road. Four generations of the Johnsons family have since worked tirelessly to showcase some of the most beautiful jewellery pieces and high quality watches that the jewellery industry has to offer. Our business is still in the hands of the Johnson family; Robert, Pam, Libby and Catherine each have an active role in the company and are passionate about upholding our reputation as one of the finest jewellers in the Midlands.
We have extended our shop considerably over the years. When our business relocated to the Queens Road site after the Second World War, the shop was a small single entry premises and the Johnson family lived on the first floor. In the 1980s major developments took place and a large extension was carried out to the side of the building, where the shop grew in size and could therefore offer a wider range of product.
In 1999 we purchased the building next door, which had previously been Harding’s Bakery. This gave us the opportunity to expand once more and to open a separate business called Tikk. The stylish shop sold gadgets, silver jewellery and fashion watches, and even a Billy Bass singing fish was known to adorn the walls.
Over the years we decided that both shops needed to be refreshed and so in 2010 we merged the shops to give us an even larger shop floor space, which is where you will find us today.
