What We Do


We are an independent family run jewellers, started by George Banks at Lune Street in 1935 after several years as manager of Winters Jewellers in Orchard Street, eventually he was joined by his son Brian in the 40's and the business is now in the hands of the third generation John Banks.

Striving to be as personable and approachable as a jewellers can hope to be whilst understanding that purchasing and maintaining jewellery is a very special experience and is of upmost sentimental importance. We sell a wide range of jewellery, pre-owned premier watches, diamonds and wedding rings. Our bespoke service allows the dreams of even the most imaginative customer to be realised.

Our longstanding membership with the National Association of Jewellers, which promotes high professional and ethical standards, is to inspire greater consumer confidence, and to ensure we are committed to an honest and knowledgeable approach to our business.

George Banks jewellers has some fantastic, beautiful and original pieces of jewellery.

Just purchased out wedding rings from here, and it’s been a lovely experience from start to finish. I met John at a wedding fair a year ago he was knowledgeable and friendly which made our decision easy to go to them. I’ve had a bespoke ring made to fit my engagement ring and it is stunning! I would recommend this shop to anyone.
