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 serviceโ€”the most memorable experience youโ€™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 youโ€™re a customer or a window shopper, youโ€™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), itโ€™s ready to cherish. From our hands to yours.
