The Hancocks Story
Our story begins in 1860 with one man’s vision – to bring excellence to all facets of jewellery design, craftsmanship, and customer service. Hancocks was the very first jewellers in Manchester. Despite the city’s evolving retail landscape, our iconic King Street boutique has remained an ever-present fixture for more than 150 years.
Throughout the decades, Hancocks has shaped and defined a vision of excellence. Timeless elegance and exquisite beauty have radiated across our collection, with our designs capturing the imagination of generations of customers. Today, each of our pieces continue to be hand-picked for their rarity and ability to invoke emotion.
From the gold and gem set lines of the 1950s to the emphasis on the classic designs so popular in the new millennium, we select only finest quality diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds.
