Family tradition, the highest quality service and exquisite jewellery have been the hallmarks of success for McKinney’s Jewellers, now celebrating 131 years of business.
Step into McKinney’s Jewellers store at the Emporium in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and you enter a business built on 131 years of family tradition. From 1884 until 2004, McKinney’s Jewellers was an iconic shopfront in Ruthven Street, downtown Toowoomba. Although no longer operating in Toowoomba, the business cherishes its Darling Downs heritage and clients.
Today, McKinney’s is run by John McKinney, grandson of the first John McKinney, who established the business, and the third generation to take charge. John delights in chatting with customers, old and new, who recall the Toowoomba McKinney’s and who have stories to share. With his long-serving team, he continues to place an emphasis on a high quality of service, classic and timeless jewellery pieces and exquisite new designs from across the world. With their incredible experience, the McKinney’s team continues to offer a first-class in-house design and manufacturing service. McKinney’s also offers the traditional after sale service so clients’ fine jewellery, pearls or watches are expertly cared for by their long-serving workshop team.
Never one to stop exploring new designs, John continues to travel to jewellery fairs across the world to source exquisite pieces from established exclusive designers. 2015 sees the continuation of Marco Bicego from Italy, Isabelle Langlois from Paris, Yvel from Jerusalem, Hulchi Belluni from Belguim, and Scheffel from Germany. The team at McKinney’s is excited to announce they have recently introduced beautiful, modern South Sea pearl necklaces from New York and Paris.
Welcoming clients with professional service and exceptional product knowledge, John and his team make the purchase of an exquisite piece of jewellery exciting and pleasurable. McKinney’s is proud of its ongoing relationships with clients and offers exceptional after purchase service. Here’s to another 131 years of exquisite jewellery!
