S.T. Hopper was established in 1926 by Stanley T Hopper, the son of a Yorkshire jeweller. His policy was “quality first” and the name Hoppers quickly became a familiar one throughout the county for reliability and value for money.
We pride ourselves on the care and professional advice offered by our staff. As a renowned diamond specialist our range of diamond and gem set jewellery in both gold and platinum is extensive.

The Business was taken forward by Stanley’s son Gerry who expanded to a larger premises and more central location in the historic Market Place, close to the famous Boston Stump.
In 1968 Hoppers took possession of 49 Market Place it can be seen here as Woodthorpe, a coal merchant.
The building gets a ‘modern’ make over and proves to be a huge success. After 50 years in the jewellery trade Gerry finally retires from the company in 2001. Leaving his sons Tim and James to maintain the high standards of S.T. Hopper Ltd along with the very experienced and loyal staff known as ‘Team Hopper’ We remain an independent, privately owned business which offers unrivalled service and expertise in all aspects of the jewellers trade.
