About John T Hinkley
In 2008 John T Hinkley moved to its current site in Elizabeth Street, Sydney. Today a director of the business is always on the premises and their staff – all highly qualified gemmologists - are very much part of the family.
The current owners gave the manufacturing business to their employees in 2001. These craftsmen were trained as apprentices by the principal and have over 30 years experience with John T Hinkley ensuring the highest standards of quality and value are maintained.
How it began
John Thomas Hinkley opened his jewellery store in Sydney's Castlereagh Street in 1920. When Hinkley died after nearly half a century in the trade his family sold the retail business to the current owners – John T Hinkley's manufacturing jeweller - in 1967.
The current owners have upheld the family values and tradition John T Hinkley is renowned for and continue to cater to generations of Australians from the city and the bush as well as discerning overseas customers.
