For three generations Bannon Jewellers have proudly committed to providing our customers with expert jewellery services and the highest standard of customer care.
Bannon Jewellers was founded at the height of WWII in 1942, when Michael Bannon Snr embarked on a completely new venture, and opened the first shop at 36b Talbot Street in Dublin’s City Centre. The business flourished in the years that followed, as Bannon Jewellers established a reputation for providing the highest quality jewellery and exceptional service. Michael Bannon enrolled in the Swiss-Irish School of Horology under the tutilage of Marc Golay, and after graduating in 1969 moved to Switzerland to La Chaux de Fonds to work for Omega. On the passing of Michael Bannon Snr, Michael returned to Ireland to run the family business during the day. At night he worked as a watchmaker for many of the top Dublin jewellers.
In 1980, Michael Bannon took the brave step to move the business out of Dublin City Centre, to the coastal town of Bray, Co. Wicklow. Here Bannon Jewellers continued to grow and thrive as an established and trusted family jewellery, building lasting relationships with our customers as they chose us to celebrate their important milestones. The business expanded and in 1994 opened a second store, in Blackrock’s Frascati Shopping Centre. In 2003, we moved to our current prominent corner location on the Main Street in the heart of Bray.
In 2012 Michael Bannon Jnr, following a career in architecture joins the family business on a full time basis. Michael had spent the previous 10 years in architecture practises in Paris and Dublin, specialising in luxury interiors. In 2019, 25 years after opening we have relocated within Frascati SC to a new larger unit.
At Bannon Jewellers, we remain committed to providing you with the perfect piece of jewellery for every and any occasion, and providing you with the highest standard of customer service and aftercare. We are proud to bring the wealth of experience and expertise we have amassed over three generations to each and every customers today, whether you are visiting us in our Bray and Blackrock stores or shoppign with us online.
