history

 

From 1884 until 2004, McKinney’s maintained an iconic presence on Ruthven St in Toowoomba. Starting life as a tobacconist and hairdresser and segueing into retail specialising in fine china and other homewares, McKinney’s was one of the first luxury department stores in
South East Queensland.

The McKinney forefathers then discovered their flair for producing and selling luxury jewellery. Now located at the fashionable ‘Emporium’ retail precinct in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, McKinney’s continues the family tradition of high quality, personal service and attention to detail in importing and creating the most exquisite jewellery.


Each generation has honed the McKinney brand with their own style and character but one thing remains the same – their ability to discern and produce jewellery of exceptional quality and brilliance. McKinney’s import the most stunning collections from around the globe including Ole Lynggard of Copenhagen, Marco Bicego from Italy, Hulchi Belunni from Belgium and Isabelle Langlois from Paris. Complementing the imported collections is McKinney’s bespoke collection of Australian and Tahitian South Sea Pearls and Diamonds.
