Our Story

Lending an Unexpected Hand. Every Day.

It started on a street corner in England. Then it emerged as a rare gem in the heart of downtown Iowa City in the late nineteenth century. As the oldest jeweler in the state of Iowa, Hands Jewelers, a local, family-owned business, has earned its name providing real, trustworthy serviceβ€”the most memorable experience you’ll have with a jeweler.

You might walk into our store for a ring to express your love, a gift to commemorate a special occasion, a little magic to breathe new life into something treasured, or even an expert opinion. Whether you’re a customer or a window shopper, you’ll discover something hands selected, hands crafted, or hands customized. Something unexpected. After we source it, customize it, and inspect it (not once, but multiple times), it’s ready to cherish. From our hands to yours.
