About Us

Shannon's Jewellers in Lisburn is a business with a difference. Decades of experience, unique products and superior customer service, packaged together in the right building, have made this prestigious home-grown business a major success.


Jewellery has been a central part of the Shannon's family for three generations. Since 1925 they have offered expertise and skill in jewellery design and diamonds, and today the Shannon's name is renowned throughout Northern Ireland.


In October 1925, William Shannon opened the first Shannon Watchmakers and Jewellers shop in Kingscourt, Ireland following his apprenticeship as a watchmaker. He established the business allowing him to have a number of apprentices one of which was John Joseph Shannon who began his career in watch repair in 1945.
William Shannon continued to work up until his retirement at which point JJ Shannon continued to show a keen interest in watches becoming a Craft member of the British Horilogical Society and developing the business over a number of years.


In November 1962, JJ Shannon's Jewellers first came to Lisburn, Northern Ireland. It was initially established in Castle Street and in 1987 Shannon's then moved to 1 Market Square following the retirement of JL Boyle Jewellers. Around this time Mervyn and Ruth brought a new face to the family business, then known as Shannon's Jewellers.


Shannon's have expanded into world renowned luxury brands in diamond set jewellery and within the watch industry.
